Cicero and the Orations was formed as the brainchild of singer and guitarist Ian McNally and vocalist Tim Bustle in 2009. It was soon after that Daniel Bloch and bassist Shannon Moore joined in on drums and bass. After recording a demo EP in 2011, drummer John Mason was recruited. We began recording Things That Endure at the Pancake Factory in NY in the summer of 2015, and soon started gigging throughout the greater NYC area. Focusing on live performance as the album was mixed and mastered, we continued to grow our fan base leading up to the release on August 2016, playing the likes of venues like Mercury Lounge, The Bitter End, Pianos, and Rockwood Music Hall. We're currently hard at work finishing up our second album, and looking forward to what lies ahead in the next decade!
The current human form of Cicero & the Orations:
Tim Bustle -- Vocals
Daniel Bloch -- Drums & Keyboards
Ian McNally -- Guitar

Look out for us in the NYC area throughout 2020!
