CHRISIS (vox, guitar) Now U.S Permanent Resident
was born in South Africa where he spent the first years of his life. Son of a flight attendant, he travelled a lot. So he moved to Algeria and finally to Cortina d Ampezzo (Italy). There he started playing guitar and composing his own music. He changed different bands before he met Lop Noor; together they started the Edgar Allan Poets project. Their sound is smooth but strong, it is sad and tender; lyrics are poems inspired by Poe’s novels.
He now lives in Burbank (CA)
LOP NOOR (Drums)
He was born in Bergen (Norway). After a few years, he moves with his family to Italy, and precisely to Cortina d Ampezzo. Here, Lop Noor begins studying drums and percussions. In order to improve the level of his studies, he moves to Milan first and then to Verona where he graduates at the conservatoire. During this period he starts feeling like he wants to compose something original but he feels also like he s missing something to reach this goal. After a few months this problem has been solved. He meets Chrisis and They immediately find themselves very close as for their musical tendencies. In September 2006 they give birth to the Edgar Allan Poets.
