I’m grumpy in the morning.

Who is IGOR?

IGOR is sullen and glum, yet electrified by love. Behind shades, he is reserved and curious; on stage, he‘s wild, elegant, and passionate. At times, IGOR’s atmosphere is magnetically intricate and abstract — others, it’s brash, disgruntled, and ridden with corny love tantrums.

IGOR features a smorgasbord of instrumentation, the most notable being: 80’s brass synths, thick-amped basses, and distorted strings. There’s also a healthy dosage of piano (both electric and grand), some rare percussive hits, and plenty of arpeggiated, ear-tickling leads.

IGOR’s Specialties

Bored, uneducated, homeless — em dashes are my specialty. I write what I see, think, and feel. That’s it.
