Enigmatic Singer/songwriter Rory D’Lasnow first picked up his father’s right-handed guitar as a small child, instinctively deciding to play the instrument upside-down and backwards. Most guitarists play right handed. Some play lefty guitar. Only a select few treat the instrument as if it’s not even a guitar at all such as legendary artists like Babyface, Buddy Miles, Jimmy Cliff and Dick Dale.
Despite never turning the guitar right-side up, Rory has cultivated a unique contemplative sound that has propelled him on to perform at some of the East Coast's most distinguished venues and festivals; from the Knitting Factory, The Bowery Electric, Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall, to Revolution Music Hall on Long Island, and The Saint and Brighton Bar on the Jersey Shore.
D’Lasnow has also had the honor of opening for featured headliners such as American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, actor/musician Drake Bell, and John Corabi of Motley Crue/Dead Daisies fame. Next year, Rory is slated to perform on the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival acoustic stage for the New Found Glory and The Early November session in April 2021.
