Members of MetalMorphosis are rock n roll warriors hailing from different parts of the United States finally meeting and coming together in their hometown of Portland Oregon in 2014. Larry Smith and Brandon Cook were already co- Lords of the Portland metal bubble. They met Andy after he witnessed a performance of them playing Dio (Sabbath years) tunes at the annual Monsters Of Rock concert . The idea for MetalMorphosis was concieved that night. After a gathering of minds , they pooled their own personal guides of rock lords Plant, Meine, Dio, Slash, Rhodes, Bozzio, Van Halen, Bunker, Elliot, Loungo, Bonzo and Taylor. They focused on repurposing Jazz and Show tunes with rock intensity resulting in metal fueled joy, and the music gods were pleased.
Mikey J - is a singer, pianist, lyricist, composer, bass player, percussionist and killer drummer.Mike probably sews his own clothes from cotton he's grown. A very popular and busy Portland musician who performs with some of the top bands in the region . Mike got together with Andy and discussed a collaboration with the boys at BRM , Mike wanted to take his songs to a higher level and we were happy to oblige. Mike’s musical approach sounds like a hybrid of Phoenix, Tears For Fears with influences from The Beach Boys Pet Sounds period ,classic Elton John and Radiohead .He melds bombast with genuine sorrow, soaring over choral backgrounds that (naturally) stem from the amazing compositions he writes. Yet despite his clear influences, he sounds like nobody but himself. The boys at BRM are taking Mike to that next level and look forward to this future release.
