Biography

Adom9 is a combination of two seasoned musicians - brothers, Rannoch and Randon Purcell. The brothers have been a musical team since 1992 and have four albums and three singles to their credit under the name Agnes Poetry. Their most recent official release under the Adom9 project is the double-album Deluge which includes Missa de deux freres, an electronica requiem mass.
Randon is a classically trained pianist in addition to his ten-plus years of music composition and programming. His primary focus in Adom9 is the composition of music and instrumentation for all Adom9 songs. His music spans and combines many genres including break-beat/electronica, orchestral, and alternative.
Rannoch is a classically trained vocalist and pianist bringing over ten years of songwriting and vocal experience to Adom9. He sings lead vocals and composes the lyrics and vocal arrangements for Adom9. Rannoch holds his Bachelor’s degree in classical voice and composition.
The uniqueness and diversity of Adom9’s music is most clearly demonstrated in the above mentioned project Missa de deux freres (mass of two brothers) in which they have successfully fused sacred Renaissance music with modern electronica/breakbeat and orchestral music. Their dual release Deluge contains 2 discs, one of the mass, and another disc of alternative and dance songs, and even ballads.
Both of the brothers are seasoned performers. Their former project, Agnes Poetry, gained national exposure and resulted in heavy touring for many years. In addition to performance experience, Randon has also scored music for multimedia and film while Rannoch has done extensive studio vocal work.

Lyrics

Every Horizon

Written By: Rannoch Purcell

After awhile…after the walls had come a tumblin’
I thought "I might cry. Will my tears be never-ending?"
I shouldered the weight of a world that I created.
Often I'd cry as I'd watch it, torn and fading.
But I dreamed of the blue!
I saw a star upon the loneliest of oceans…
Me and the blue…and my star…
On every horizon.
Under the lock…under the deepest bluest oceans
You found my heart… nearly drowned, nearly forgotten.
You came to my side and you traced us in a circle…
although I cry, it's my love that's never-ending.
And I still need you,
You are my star upon the loneliest of oceans.
Just me and the blue…and my star…
On every horizon.
Stirring the dust…
On every horizon.

I Wonder

Written By: Rannoch Purcell

“I wonder…if time stood still…where on earth would we be going? Far from the lands we know, or returning…the hunger in our hearts to fill.
I wonder…if life stood by…would this flame inside keep burning? Darkened with ages long, or all consuming…while movement of the stars goes on.
And somewhere… beyond the stars … the universe forgives. And somewhere …beneath the stairs …the keeper of our fears is gone.
Now under the silver moon, where the beat of life has faltered …time is a grain of sand and sadness a feather, and all we have is who we are.
And somewhere… beyond the stars … the universe forgives. And somewhere …beneath the stairs …the keeper of our fears is gone.
…time stood still….

Endless Days

Written By: Rannoch Purcell

When I was a child I learned so many things. I learned to laugh. I learned to be alone. And their world was never my time or place. From the cradle to the graveyard, my resting place was you, was you. I lay me down, in you, in you.

As thoughtless hands of time wound on through endless days I learned to love. And I learned to say goodbye. The daemons I freed out into the blue. And as sleep takes the world I return to you, my star, my angel. I lay me down, in you, in you.

It's dangerous ground you tread and covered with the fall. My heart amongst the leaves is blown and sunderred from it all. And I crawl to my resting place and I fall into my time and space. And I crawl into you. And I fall into you.

And their world was never my time or space. From the cradle to the graveyard my resting place was you, was you. I lay me down in you, in you.

Deliver me...

Atlas

Written By: Randon Purcell

I never saw 'til you opened my eyes
To all the world and all of the lines
I'd cross for you cause you told me I could
I look to you and I can hold up the weight of the world

I was blind without a reason to see
I was lost without a reason to be...found
In that crushing black darkness
Caught between the world and infinite space

I never saw 'til you opened my eyes
To all the world and all of the lines
I'd cross for you cause you told me I could
I look to you and I can hold up the weight of the world

I was searching through the depths of this place
And I lost so much more than I could...gain
Then with explosions of color
From the icy black darkness you came...came to me

And I need you to be here
Cause I'm just no good on my own
I need you to be here
Cause I'm just a failure alone
And I need you
I need you to be…right here with me

I never saw 'til you opened my eyes
To all the world and all of the lines
I'd cross for you cause you told me I could
I look to you and I can hold up the weight of the world
