Vividly Dim was born in the living room of its two founding members Joni Stephens and Chasidy Ryan. The couple both shared an eclectic taste in music. They had no problem starting the project as an acoustic one. First writing together “Brother Bond” based on a tragic loss they had in common the loss of their older brothers. Next was “Travesty” which touched on racial discrimination and how it effects an image-based society. It was clear they were on to something.
Later two amazingly talented musicians joined the indie duo Doni Lee and Ashley Jayde. Doni Lee Roman a self taught bassist learned listening to greats like Flea,Bootsy Collins and Tool’s Justin Chancellor. Ashley began her musical journey in grade school playing the trombone, violin and acoustic guitar she moved on to drums in 2006 and never looked back she finds her inspiration through percussion extraordinaire Sheila E.
Now together as “VD” they have several successful shows under their belts and a steadily growing fanbase; They are currently rehearsing for upcoming shows and working on their second EP called “Wastland Paradise”.
