As each person has a plan and each plan has a goal, the members of Rory, Chris Moore, Jeremy Menard, Marc Ispass, Joel Setzer, and Jordan Shroyer, arrive together with the goal of creating a musical aura not only to be heard, but to be felt . Sensationalizing with melodic guitar-playing, dreamy vocals, and decorative rhythm, juxtaposed with technical riffs, lung-wrenching screams, and rhythmic barrages, Rory shines on a new facet to the ever-expanding rock and roll genre.
Rock-borne in 1998, Rory has been making continuous progress. Surely, they are not the first band to spend 5 years, constantly building and rebuilding, writing and rewriting, forming and reforming, but central Florida rock band Rory is the rising band that no one should pass up experiencing. With the oldest member at just 21 years old, and the youngest barely old enough to vote, the amount of experience the band has collectively is sure to shock everyone. With close to 30 years of combined band experience, each member brings a hearty portion of skill, creativity, and work ethic to the table. Upon striking gold with a sound line-up of members, Rory has been traveling the country, making fans out of whole audiences, earning respect, and, as no band is ever done doing, learning and growing.
Rory's live show is the backbone of their music. It's energetic and intense but maintains the style and beauty of a Swan Lake performance. The band tours nationally and has shared the stage with the likes of fall out boy, less than jake, the spill canvas, self against city, this day & age, rookie of the year, and more.
Rory is heavily influenced from both modern alternative rock and the indie rock scene. The band roughly describes their music as catchy indie/core; but hopes for their music to be enjoyed by audiences from various demographics. Rory has been compared to the likes of Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Finch, Deftones, The Foo Fighters, and Alkaline Trio.
Thanks to unyielding drive, classical music training, and youthful views, Rory smiles widely with accomplished feats that only a band with immense independent strength could produce. With these powers combined, Rory will not be overshadowed or stand to be ignored.
Rory's new album, we're up to no good, we're up to no good", was produced by Mark Hoppus (Blink-182/Plus 44) and John Avila (Oingo Boingo).
