The first time the public got a taste of husband-wife country duo The Dryes was in May 2018 when they began releasing material from Vol.1. Vol.1 was recorded at the famed Blackbird Studios in Nashville, a town the North Carolina natives Derek Drye and Katelyn Drye now call home. Their first single, “Amen,” was spotlighted, by Rolling Stone Country’s Jon Freeman who said: “Husband-wife duo The Dryes sing their origin story in the slinky ‘Amen’...a scuzzy guitar riff that recalls Norman Greenbaum’s classic ’Spirit In The Sky’ and a strutting beat that could make the most conservative church lady clutch her pearls. Husband Derek adds harmonies in the chorus breakdown, a low-down gospel that asks the rhetorical question: ‘Can I get an Amen?’ With a groove this tough, absolute.”
The duo’s subsequent lead single from Vol. II is “War,” a song 30 years in the making that carries an emotional backstory and was released alongside a breathtaking music video. CMT shared some thoughts on the single when they ran the video, saying “...this duo sings of a love worth fighting for in their latest single ‘War’.”
Eric Dodd grew up in Lake Oconee, Ga. chasing two things: golf balls and a guitar. He had a passion and a natural gift for both. He pursued a music business degree at the University of Georgia and immersed himself in the fertile Athens music scene (R.E.M., Drive-By Truckers).
But in the end, it was the lyrics that brought him to Music City.
His musical journey has him weaving seamlessly between rock, country, and Americana with themes that speak to the heart of Friday night, as well as Monday morning. As a songwriter, he can be sweetly nostalgic and equally rambunctious.
