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. They are releasing two follow-up singles in spring and summer 2015.
Distoria experiments with electronics and strives to raise the level of their live performance at every performance. Their “palpable live energy” is infectious at shows, and their electro-rock music leaves people asking, “How are there only three of them?”
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.”
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 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.
