Never My Silence (NMS) was formed in 2006 in a basement with members- Dewey Crain (Lead Vocals), Carl Buttry (Guitar/Back up Vocals), Brett Buttry (Bass/Back up Vocals), Craig Kopplin (Drums) Robert Lederle (Guitar/Back up vocals. With more than 25 years of band experience NMS was formed on the basis of creating a new stigma for local, original bands. The music that NMS creates is inspired solely on life experience. Never My Silence has built a reputation of writing and performing music, that is best described as “dirty, oldschool, Americana, HardRock” -Dewey Crain.
Never My Silence is classified in the Rock Genre, however many of their original songs could easily cross over into other genres as well. NMS has played with National acts including Cavo, Operator, Modern Day Zero, Powerman 5000,Papa Roach and many local bands. They have performed in the Missouri/Illinois region at, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater (Pointfest 2008), POP’S Nightclub (Sauget, IL), The Pageant (Central West), to name a few.
With the release of their self titled album, Never My Silence in 2008, they became one of the most popular and sought after local bands in St. Louis. “Having seen them once, I can say they are not to be missed. The musicianship was excellent and very impressive. The music on their page is very good, but cannot do justice for what this band is like live-an event that truly is not to be missed for rock lover.” –Alternative Addiction
