Hailing from the heart of Oregon ( Bend), Aaron "Smore" Moore is the silly putty holding down infectious grooves while providing dynamic vocal leads and harmonies. Smore comes from an extensive musical background, being involved in middle school, high school and college symphonic bands as well as Irish rock, blues, jazz, folk, Indie and playing for 8 years in a professional country/rock group named Three Quarter Short fronted by his Father, guitarist/vocalist - Paul Moore. He has also been involved in various local bands in Central Oregon and playing for local musicals. "My Father has always been my greatest influence", states Smore. After living in Austin, TX and touring the large state and Colorado, Smore moved back to Bend, OR and became reunited with vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Derek Michael Marc.
“When my parents put those first pair of sticks in my hands, it was my first encounter of True Love.” Born and raised in Central Oregon, Adrian has always had an ear for music, specifically rhythms. Studying In middle school and high school symphonic bands, he versed himself as a percussionist and performed in multiple state championship concerts. Adrian was accepted to do an internship at Musitech Studios in Redmond, OR - learning the "in's and out's" of the recording studio. With doing so, it expanded his knowledge of various genres of music. It was also a great tool for building his audio engineering/producing skills and style. Adrian can also be found at Recliner Records in Bend, OR., where he gets a chance to use his studio engineering and producer know-how as co-producer/session drummer. When not in the studio, Adrian loves playing live. He brings the tastefully explosive punch to the rhythm section that has been characterized as a "split atom"!
