Cyber Hard Rock Punk Propaganda Electronica Twisted Mind Fuck: an aural sex rollercoaster ride...

Biography

MORISSONPOE has created their own genre. Constantly pushing the envelope with everything from their music to their live performances, this is a band that defies any labels and is truly in a genre of one. MorissonPoe is realizing that one is not necessarily the loneliest number when it comes to taking that position and leading the way with it in revolutionizing the music scene as we know it today.

MorissonPoe’s journey as a revolutionary force started when four individuals came together with a common purpose: to make music with passion that was going to rock and surge through people’s souls. If one must define the band’s sound, it is best described as “CyberHardRockPunkPropagandaElectronicMindFuck with a twist.” Fans relate to songs of love, lust, confusion, and anger, outpouring from the band’s captivating female vocalist Jean Morisson who enslaves an audience with her sexy onstage magnetism and emotionally electric and dramatically charged voice. DSPoe mesmerizes as the band’s bass and synth extraordinaire. MoPoMikey takes the stage by storm with his piercing, hard-hitting guitar riffs. Nyk, as the band’s drummer, is the volcanic beating heart of MorissonPoe.

The band has shared stages with major touring acts like HIM, Kill Hannah, The Outkast, Sneaker Pimps, My Chemical Romance, and more, but the journey does not stop with killer live shows that keep MorissonPoe fans coming back, craving for more. The band has also had commercial success with their first nationally-distributed independent release, “Glitter Girl: of the Tale, the Passion, and the Rapture,” which had MorissonPoe getting radio airplay and charting on CMJ and Myspace. In fact, the band is consistently rating highly on the Myspace indie, alternative, rock, and electronica charts. Their massive internet presence has created a significant, united global fan base, showing that MorissonPoe’s message transcends and touches people worldwide, without boundaries. The band has also been reviewed in and interviewed by major publications, including the New York Times, New York Post, Rag Magazine, Redefine Magazine, and several online publications including AOL’s “Digital City.”

The band has been exploring new media--ways to reach their hungry audience: video games and television. As a result of MorissonPoe’s nature to be wildly independent and cutting-edge, Nile Rodgers has taken interest in the band and has signed them with Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., his national record label. Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc., through a licensing relationship with Microsoft Game Studios, recently presented Xbox 360’s Perfect Dark Zero Original Soundtrack, on which MorissonPoe is featured. The game’s surreal and melodic score is nicely complemented by MorissonPoe’s original, adrenaline-pumping song additions. The video for “Glitter Girl: Evil Side,” one of the songs featured on the soundtrack, is currently being shown on MTV.

And the voyage continues... MorissonPoe unveils their newest CD, to be released January, 2006. Don’t let the revolution pass you by!
