Chris is the rhythm guitarist for the most part and the lead vocalist. In addition to that he writes all the songs (Bryan, Dave and Geoff are starting to write as well) , although we all add our parts so that in the end they're Eidolon songs. Chris has an odd knack for writing stuff that's complex, original and damn catchy all at the same time. His lyrics are no kick in the teeth either...abstract ideas and thought provoking insight chucked in with poetic twists & turns that make your head spin.

Bryan is the drummer for Eidolon. He is the secret weapon in the eidolon arsenal. Hidden behind the drums he provides the force necessary to drive the rest of the "lads" through each song. The way he beats those skins (?) it's no wonder Geoff and Chris took a liking to him (?). The diversity of styles that Bryan can play gives different dimensions to songs. Bryan also contributes to the writing and arranging of each song. in the bands catalogue.

Dave, a.k.a. "Goonie", is the bassist. His groovable bass lines provide the low-end, "deep-throated"(?) growl that we need(?). Goon is a walking disaster area but once he picks up the bass, guitar, drums or what have yah, he becomes an energetic mess of hormones with direction. His kickin' rawk moves provide enough of a visual stimulus to make you wonder if you were really that disgusted with that scene from "Deliverance"(...). The Goon has recently started to contribute songs to the band with Chris writing lyrics.

Geoff is the other guitarist in Eidolon. He is the guilty party involved in such elements of the eido-sound as diddles, out of key chord changes that somehow work, little lead wonders and, when onstage, he likes to zone in and out of reality. With his patented zone-outs and oblivious expression, he'll probably make you wonder "how does Bryan not just throw his drumsticks through the back of Geoff's skull?", or, "Is he an idiot-savante and thats why he is out to lunch?" Geoff has always had a strong influence in the arrangement of each song and has now begun to contribute song ideas that are so sweet they'll rot your teeth!
