The Last City

The Last City combines classical instrumentation with indie rock arrangements and pop melodies. Adrien (guitar and vocals) and Lizbet Palmer (violin and piano) draw from such influences as Damien Rice, John Mayer and Fall Out Boy. As “religious free agents”, their music and lives explore different cultures and spiritual practices, but is also willfully human. After living abroad in Japan for three years, they are currently laying roots in Dallas, Texas.

Allora Mis

In late 2012, in a rush of creativity, James Price (guitarist) started publicly posting videos of himself performing newly written, dynamically moody, ethereal, compositions.  This music formed the basis of the Allora Mis sound, & brought members Jeff Dent (Guitarist), Mike Norris (Drummer), & Greg Robinson (Guitarist) together.  In late 2013, they recorded the song July 5th at Bad Lab Studios.  After adding Matt Dembrosky (Bassist), to complete the line-up, they began recording the “We were once” EP, at Drowning Fish Studio in early 2014.

The band regrouped with Jonathan Seiler taking on the role of Bassist.  They began writing & rehearsing material, ultimately recording their self-titled EP at Gradwellhouse Studio.  Allora Mis was released in June 2017.
