Orgatroid

Friday May 13

Orgatroid is the electronic duo of longtime collaborators Jason Daniello and Jeffrey Richards, with the recent and welcome additions of Michael Feldman and Eben Henner. Their music is an original, melodic ambient mix of electropop with experimental synth textures. Daniello is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who played his first guitar overlooking the lava-covered mesas of rural New Mexico. He studied electronic music and vocal performance at the University of New Mexico, became a self-professed “pedal geek” in the 90s, and led several bands in Albuquerque. Jason moved to Asheville in 2006 with his wife, Liz and started working at Moog Music where the electronic bug hit him hard. Two years later, Jeffrey inherited a house just 3 miles away from Jason, and they started back together with new musical adventures. A native of North Carolina, Jeffrey Richards is also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. A former musical associate of the late Vic Chesnutt, Richards was a member (on guitar and drums) of world-touring Polydor recording artists Hazeldine. When he’s not making music, Richards is a fine artist and seller of rare vinyl records.
