About The Band
Conebuds are a heavy progressive rock band from Richmond, VA. The buds are known for their eclectic style of music, demonstrating their command of odd meter within a psychedelic context. Formed at the height of the covid-19 pandemic, founding buds Jake Cullin (guitar, vox) and Sean O'Neill (drums) released their debut album "Evolution" in 2021 to rave reviews and acclaim, redefining their musical potential in the process. A dynamic offering containing ambitious compositions and rhythms, Evolution is a unique musical statement offering a tightly condensed package of genre-bending material, drawing inspiration from the likes of Tool, Led Zeppelin, Rush, and Umphrey's McGee.
After recruiting the prolific Jon Cauble (bass), the trio rehearsed extensively to mold their sound together, and began booking shows within the Richmond music scene shortly after. Their live shows can be described as powerful and unpredictable, showcasing elements of metal to funk to jam, creating a hazy, euphoric experience unique to every listener. After cultivating a local following, the buds are determined to carve out their own lane and set new standards at even greater heights within the industry.
Our very good dude. Does bass good. Kicks ass. Hell yeah.
