Bio

Soren Sorensen met Brian Mechlowicz in 1996 at Boston's famed Berklee College of Music. Sorensen studied Film Scoring while Mechlowicz majored in Music Business. Thanks to mutual friends, the two played what they affectionately refer to as “the worst gig ever,” a set of covers for a Quincy, Massachusetts high school prom substance-free after-party. Their first public performance as a duo came that same year in New York City at a club neither remembers the name of. Drunk and uninvited, the two took the stage to pay homage to Hall and Oates with a moving rendition of “Sara Smile.”

”Nobody famous ever really graduated from Berklee; if you graduate from Berklee, you will never be famous.”

Soren Sorensen and Brian Mechlowicz graduated from Berklee in 1998. Despite their obvious chemistry onstage and off, Mechlowicz moved to New York City to pursue his music business aspirations while Sorensen stayed behind to pursue a career in film. In 2000, he began writing original music for History Channel series including “Hooked: Illegal Drugs And How They Got That Way” and “The Real Boston Strangler.” He also fronted Schedule 2, a critically acclaimed power-pop quartet, playing shows at Boston area clubs including The Middle East, Harper’s Ferry, and the Worcester Palladium.

Shortly after moving to New York, Brian Mechlowicz began working as an agent’s assistant at a midtown Manhattan booking agency. He also kept himself busy by playing jazz standards in Italian restaurants with his cousin Dalia Mechlowicz, performing in various rock bands including Madelin Zero and Yard, as well as opening up for the Average White Band.

In 2002, Sorensen finally rejoined Mechlowicz and the duo began writing songs and playing gigs at various New York City clubs such as Chetty Red, Coda, The Cutting Room, Balanza, and Trash. Their music has been described as “Ryan Adams meets Bryan Adams,” and “Indie-Rock/Easy-Listening,” the indie-rock perhaps a nod to Sorensen's musical upbringing, opening for bands like Green Day, Jawbreaker, Screeching Weasel, and 7 Seconds as early as 1991. Their songs definitely reveal their influences better than a phrase or two, effortlessly mixing a steady diet of classic Brit Pop such as Oasis, Blur, Supergrass, and Travis with an obsessive love (without the slightest hint of sarcasm) for Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Phil Collins, and Air Supply. Sorensen & Mechlowicz are currently recording in Brooklyn, NY and continue to perform throughout New York City.
