Band Biographies: Vallory Falls

Vallory Falls is a force of energetic pop punk desperation, a heart-on-the-sleeve remedy to the angst felt in the shadow of the great Green Mountains. From its formation in 2021, the band has shown its thematic diversity in singles such as “Rosie” and “This Too Shall Pass.” Dealing with issues of longing, regret and the fear of change, their music resonates with the disadvantaged underbelly of New England’s own.

Massachusetts native and frontman Tristan Gilliss saw the band as an opportunity to make a statement. In the midst of both a move to Vermont and a lineup change in 2021, he enlisted bassist Riley Burridge after seeing her perform at a benefit concert in South Burlington. Riley played only one show on bass guitar before the departure of original members Matt Wilson and Kat Delitto.

After a difficult year trying out new bandmates, toiling over demos, and considering Riley’s time drumming in local acts while attending Lyndon State, the idea of an instrument change was floated. Days later, the duo found themselves driving to the US border with Canada to purchase a used kit. Within weeks of this shift, the band had their bassist in Dan Lecours of Michigan. Won over by his drive and relentless dry humor, the band finally began playing shows together in their new home state.

2023 saw further lineup changes on lead guitar, with the group fleshing out their sound with the indelible melodic experience brought by guitarist Meghan Burke. Having played in numerous staple punk rock bands in the area, Meghan is the newest member of Vallory Falls. In late 2023 and into early 2024, the band began recording in Gilliss’ basement studio for their debut studio album.

Vallory Falls have played countless shows in the greater New England area, with plans far beyond their home state. For booking inquiries, please contact the band at
