The focal point of Red440 is lead vocalist, Kris Haydel. Hailing from the New Orleans suburb of Metairie, Kris grew up listening to nearly every genre of music out there. Getting his first guitar at age 14 in the mid-90s, he tried to emulate his favorite licks and vocals from the likes of Pearl Jam, Van Halen, Smashing Pumpkins, and Guns n' Roses. While in college to earn his B.S. in Aerospace Engineering, Kris continually wrote music and used his guitar to take his mind away from the rigorous studies. Many of these songs have lasted the test of time and become the baseline for what appears on Everyone's Expendable.
Recording Artist; Musician (mostly guitar, but also keyboards for recording projects); songwriter (music and some lyrics); Assists in producing, recoding, and mixing; and business partner in Red440 Production, LLC and associated dba publishing company, Red440 Publishing.
The other half of the Red440 equation comes by way of Mike Vranjkovic. Growing up in Minnesota during the 70s, Mike would drift away to the driving sounds of Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Fleetwood Mac, and Blondie that shaped a generation of listeners. Also an Aerospace Engineer, he's developed a technical expertise in music that has helped him deliver the unique and dynamic structures that appear on Everyone's Expendable. Never satisfied with the status quo, Mike has continued to evolve his taste to reflect current pop and dance rhythms.
