George Morris and the Gypsy Chorus

DETROIT PROUD: George Morris and The Gypsy Chorus

“I think you can be inspired by anything.” George Morris has been writing music since he was in high school, first in a style known as “bedroom pop.” Why? Well, he would write and record it all in his bedroom, all on his own. “Everyday interactions, books,” George says. He pulls inspiration from everything around him. He jokes “even romantic comedies. You just have to keep your eyes open.”

The Oscillating Fan Club

DETROIT PROUD: The Oscillating Fan Club

Their sound is not like anything you’ve heard before – especially not here in Detroit. They blend together, in perfect harmony…a mash-up of ‘70s rock and ‘60s pop, maybe a bit of a psychedelic flair, with goofy lyrics and captivating guitar melodies. Imagine if you took the gritty-bluesy rock from The Black Keys, blended in the resonance of the album Disraeli Gears by Cream (make sure you give “Sympathetic Strings” a listen), and then topped it with a poppy beat similar to The Zombies. To be fair, that only paints a small picture of who The Oscillating Fan Club are – one of Metro Detroit’s most promising up-and-coming bands.
