Consisting of Adrian Tonceanu (Vocals/Guitars), Igor Lazebnik (Vocals/Guitars) and
Tyler Koch (Drums/Backup Vocals) Morre was born in early 2008 in Toronto Canada,
by the common thirst of creating an original, dynamic yet accessible sound. This band
has a unique story behind its upbringing. Traveling through different parts of the world,
each member endured hardships as artists, as well as the joys of meeting new characters
throughout their journeys. These elements give the band endless topics and depth to
their lyrical and musical content. Combining dark, mystical themes with camp-fire vibe,
this band will trigger a wide range of emotions in their listeners. With a deeply rooted
musical knowledge these three rockers managed to craft an elaborate yet easily digestible
sound of their own, using auxiliary instruments, vintage organ and recording methods.
Morre’s influences are so vast that it’s hard to place them in a category of recycled rock.
Though they are a classic rock band, it’s almost like they found a fresh sound that was not
explored. If one was to describe the band’s style, the closest ancestors would be „Paint it
black” (Rolling Stones) and „Kashmir” (Led Zeppelin). The selling point of this band is
that it doesn’t sound like any other band.
By performing at several venues throughout Ontario and Quebec, the band managed
to catch the attention of various labels in the early stages of their existence as well as
attracting audiences of all age groups. As a result the band got signed to USA based
label „Melodic Revolution Records” in January of 2011. With a powerful live delivery
reinforced by conviction and strong dynamics, Morre keeps the audience in the palm of
their hands. The band is very charismatic and treats their audience with class, respect,
making everyone an ally.
One of the many unique characteristics of the band is defined by a Queen-esque ability to
all sing in harmony. The two distinct sounding singers/guitar players (Igor and Adrian)
give the band a panned stereo flavour that will make you bend back and forth between
the left and right speakers of your stereo system. These two songwriters create music
that is honest and it is delivered in the authenticity of their voices. Adrian’s smoky-
lounge baritone (some of the influences: David Gilmour, Jim Morrison, David Bowie,
David Gahan and etc.) and Igor’s raspy melodic tenor voice (some of the influences:
Layne Staley, Eddie Vedder, Mike Patton and etc) complement each other, giving the
band many options with a rare edge. Both Adrian and Igor are lead/rhythm guitar players
with many common influences such as David Gilmour, Slash, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck,
Keith Richards, Ritchie Blackmore and more. Tyler’s diverse drumming and ability
to personalize each song is an integral part of the overall sound. Combining a Ginger
Baker/Keith Moon stage persona and style, Tyler is hardly the guy at the back, sharing
the spotlight. Morre is known to hire professional bassists for specific events or for their
tours which explains why there is always a new face, a fourth member in the band.
Their two records „…Out There” and „Contrast” released in 2010 and 2011 are selling
consistently throughout the world, gaining highly acclaimed reviews in North America,
Europe and Australia. The albums were featured on many radio shows throughout
the above mentioned continents touching a wide demographic range. These albums
established Morre as an original sounding band and carved a unique path that can be
recognized from the first seconds of any of their songs.
In 2011 Morre toured Europe successfully for two and half months playing in 12
countries over 33 concerts as well as taking part of radio shows and interviews for
magazines. Upon their return to North America they also played in USA part of the
Clinton Arts and Music Festival sharing the stage with many great artists. Currently
the band is working on their 3rd record entitled „Morphine” with the deadline set for
April 2012. Morre will tour Europe again in 2012 for over three and a half months in the
summer/fall of 2012 with the aim of performing in at least 15 countries.
To sum up Morre, they are like a Led Zeppelin Pinot Noir. Take the sound of Led
Zeppelin, add in a bit of modernization, a dash of World flavour, and let age in your
iPod.”, Craig Wettner (Blogs N’ Roses).
