Singer-Songwriter, Alternative Rock
Rory D’Lasnow is a singer-songwriter from New Jersey. From the first time his father brought out his guitar to comfort Rory as a baby, it was clear that a lifelong relationship with music was being forged. Though he initially feared the sound of the instrument, Rory soon picked up his father’s right handed guitar upside down and backwards and began to craft original songs.
Despite never turning the guitar right-side up, Rory has cultivated a unique contemplative sound that has propelled him on to perform at some of the East Coast's most distinguished venues and festivals - from the Knitting Factory, The Bowery Electric, Pianos, and Rockwood Music Hall - to Revolution Music Hall on Long Island, and The Saint and Brighton Bar on the Jersey Shore. He has also had the honor of opening for featured headliners such as American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, actor/musician Drake Bell, and John Corabi of Motley Crue/Dead Daisies fame and has had songs licensed by MTV, NASCAR, and The Discovery Network.
Rory's recent release, “An American Lie”, was lauded as “powerful” by American Songwriter with NJ.com stating that the song “gets it right”. His subsequent single "Happy" received international press and airplay on over 35 radio stations across North America. In June, Rory is slated to perform on the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival acoustic stage for the New Found Glory and The Early November session. Rory is currently completing his upcoming third EP, entitled “Songs From An Empty Room”, with Hidden In Plain View guitarist/producer Rob Freeman (Gym Class Heroes, Armor For Sleep, Cobra Starship, Hit The Lights) and Grammy nominated mastering engineer Mike Kalajian (All Time Low, Circa Survive, Saosin, Straylight Run).
