SORNE comes straight out of Austin and is fronted by a visual artist, musician and poet named Morgan Sorne. The band includes Morgan, Kevin Naquin and Deano—no last name, just Deano—along with a production team that brings Sorne’s music and visual artistry to life. In the last few years, Sorne has written over 80 songs. The first 13 were released in 2011 in his debut album, House of Stone, and he’s working on the rest to be released in a series of chapters, one for each of the five siblings, the star characters of the House of Stone saga. Set in no particular time or place, the story speaks of family relationships, focusing on the death of the father and highlighting Sorne’s obsession with the Divine Mother. House of Stone grew in his mind for years, the characters initially born as direct reflections of his mother and her siblings. With this as the inspiration you get an entirely unorthodox approach to music that sounds nothing like anything else in existence. This past summer, SORNE caught the attention of Kyp Malone, Tunde Adebimpe and Jaleel Bunton of TV on the Radio and were asked to open for them on a short tour, performing to sold-out crowds. SORNE performed over 50 shows in 20 cities last year including an appearance at UTOPiAfest.
