He also sings for the school chorus and plays sax and bass for the school band and jazz band. When he's not playing guitar, he can be found running, on the tennis courts, or facing down his dad in an intense chess battle. During the winter, he works as a snowboard instructor for the New York Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) at Gore Mountain. He is also writing and recording music with Jocelyn at White Lake Music and Post and recently recorded a guitar track on the album "Simply" by rising country star Chelsea Cavanaugh.

Evan Searles

Evan is the drummer for both The Dependents and the school band. He is very musical, and also plays guitar and bass guitar. Evan is 16 and a junior. He plays basketball and soccer, runs cross-country, and is a sprinter and pole-vaulter for the HS track team. When he's not drumming, he can be found on his 4-wheeler or rocking the half-pipe with his snowboard.

She plays bass guitar for The Dependents and alto saxophone for the school band. During the summer, Val works as a camp counselor in the Adirondack Mountains.  Val is always busy.  When you track her down, she will probably be working feeding calves, camping with her family or skiing.
