Bryon Dudley

Bryon Dudley has written about the Iowa music scene for the Des Moines Music Coalition, the Iowa Informer, Little Village, and now IPR Studio One (amongst others). He is passionate about Iowa music, and performs with his own bands: Strong Like Bear, Moonrabbit, Rockets of Desire and The Cherrypickers.

During the day, you'll find him working as a recording engineer for his studio, The Spacement, where he's recorded and connected with hundreds of Iowa artists, some of which have put their records out on his Iowa-centric record label, Nova Labs, which has released more than 150 projects since 2013. He regularly produces and plays shows in Central Iowa, and has been an organizer for the Maximum Ames Music Festival and The Uncertainty Festival.

Dudley is an Iowa native but has traveled the world to see concerts. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Rachel, their two cats, and their dog, Geddy, who is named for Rush bassist/singer Geddy Lee. He reads far too many comic books and loves good Indian food.
