We call our music Americana Noir. Created from the dead things that Brandy drug in from the gothic country of her native Montana. From the rusty riffs John uncovered in some dark garage in the Ottawa Valley. From black metal soundscapes and epic Denver bands. And the lyrics are most likely influenced by rustic paintings partially obscured by spiderwebs …
Big John Bates built his reputation by creating an epic atmosphere with every live performance and the Noirchestra is the highest point of that dark undertaking.
