The Iceman Special is a 4 piece outfit transplanted from the swamps of Louisiana to New Orleans. They create a sound that resonates with the psych rock community as well as writing songs that explore reggae, funk, melodic pop, prog, and other influences. The bands live shows are notorious for their intensity and their use of innovative and creative visual stimuli while also taking pride in song writing and the delivery of their message. Screeching yet smooth guitars, wandering yet punchy bass lines, synthesizers, driving drum beats, and powerful vocals form a one of kind soundscape.
“They don’t wear their influences on their sleeves, their original songs are too good for that, but the indicators are there. The production is strong and unlike so many bands that are unable to translate their live energy to a record, the Iceman Special gets the job done.” – The Vinyl District
“The band rocks and lays down such fat, solid slabs of rock ‘n’ roll that if they are not careful, the audience can trip on them and fall a long joyous time.” – David Kunian – Curator – New Orleans Jazz Museum and Louisiana State Museum
You may have heard Austin-based Peter More’s music produced by Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, live on tour with Grace Potter, or supporting Leon Bridges in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. At turns contemplative and rousing, More’s music is precisely executed, yet manages to feel original and uncomplicated; Music you want to hum along with and also hang on to every single line.
Over the years, Peter More and his bandmates have called many places home. Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, More joined forces with Spanish flamenco guitarist José Juan Poyatos, Mexican bassist Diego Noyola, and French-American drummer Adrien Faunce in San Miguel de Allende, the colonial arts haven three hours north of Mexico City. The rest is…the beginning.
