Piano rock trio Distoria spent months honing their catalogue of music into 5 cohesive songs — 7 tracks total, including an introduction and a bonus track — before releasing their debut EP “The Periphery.” With the support of their Kickstarter backers, they were able to create an album they are truly proud of.



Tim Lykins’ acoustic drums and an 1875 Steinway grand piano played by Helena Martin drive the sound of the album, with Mor Mezrich weaving electronics and fuzzy bass guitar into this solidly acoustic base. Martin’s vocal tracks are dry with a tinge of distortion, with “engaging lyrics” and “a chilling mix of anger and empathy” (Hot Indie Media).

“… a soundtrack to New York’s beating heart.”

Meet the Band

Distoria first formed in 2010 to play at the Connecticut-based music festival B.O.M.B. Fest. In 2012, the band launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds for their debut EP entitled The Periphery. The EP was tracked at Flux Studios and The Buddy Project, and it was mixed at Ears & Gears Recording in Astoria.

    The Band

    Distoria experiments with electronics and strives to raise the level of their live performance at every show. In 2012 a successful Kickstarter campaign helped raise the funds to complete a debut EP entitled The Periphery.

    vocals, piano

    Helena Martin wrote and performed as a solo singer-songwriter in NYC for five years before forming Distoria in 2010. Helena writes the songs, plays a MIDI controller and vocal processor, and “makes the keys rock like nobody’s business.”

    bass, electronics

    Mor Mezrich grew up in Israel, plus California for a few years. As a kid, he loved the Beach Boys, the Beatles, classic rock, and jazz. A Berklee-trained audio engineer, his bass playing and sonic architecture are integral to Distoria’s sound.

  • Cody Zahn of Distoria



    Cody Rahn hits things for a living, loves spicy food and wool hats, and probably drinks too much coffee. He formally studied jazz and classical percussion while spending his nights playing rock shows and obsessing about Frank Zappa.
