Morning Teleportation formed in 2008 when Tiger Merrit (vocals/guitar) moved from Chicago to Bowling Green Kentucky for college and met up with childhood friend Travis Goodwin (keyboards/saxophone/vocals). From the beginning the band has been a roller coaster ride of Rock and Roll sound traveling in and out of psychedelia, indie rock and jazz. Most of the last few years has been spent either in the studio or on the road playing for crowds at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant and Modest Mouse.
To see the band perform live is to witness a cacophony of improvisational mayhem and melodic twist and turns. Merrit’s vocals dart sharply in and out of the hectic back beat that the rhythm section holds down. The sound may be more modern but make no mistake, these are boys who want nothing more than to have a good time in the classic rock idiom. If they can make the crowd smile they can leave happy.
Morning Teleportation is a house party, a futuristic hootenanny and a backroom jam session all rolled into one.
Performing with a rotating lineup of musicians, Peaer is an object set in motion, staying in motion. Songwriter Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns) has an understanding of dynamics, amplitude, and melody as they interact as physical bodies, pushing, pulling, peaking and falling. Consequently, Peaer produces songs about communication as a force on a linguistic and kinetic level communication between individuals, between yourself and other self, between your heart and your brain.
