Still working on that hot first release.



James English and Kyle Lanning make up the band called Mortimer Rex.  They started playing together at a coffee shop just off the college campus where James was working as a biology professor and Kyle was working on his BS in biology.  James is a terrific writer and Kyle plays the hell out of a guitar and performs most lead vocals.

James' songs include very specific images and stories that are gritty, detailed moments in people's lives in an effort to connect the listener to universal experiences. His songs are snapshots... these people that Mortimer Rex sing about have a history, they have an arc, and the lyrics may hint at a future, but the stories are about the immediate struggle of now.
