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 pianist and percussionist 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, leading up to our first release in 2016.
Since then, we've continued to share our sound, 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 look forward to what lies ahead in the next decade!
