Uforia from Mississauga, Ontario emerges from the deep inner urge to rock. More than just a hobby, creation and performance are intwined into the life’s work of Michael Ursini, Daniel Salij, Dylan Piercey, and Angel Gomez. The art and work they put forth are genuine expressions of their innate creativity. They sincerely feel that they were born to make music, to perform, to raise the energy of the room, and inspire in the listener.

While doing their best to embrace the new age and modern pop sensibilities, they refuse to surrender the hard-hitting, distorted, body rocking, mind-bending rumblings they came up with. From Rush and Floyd, to Incubus and Billy Talent, Uforia aims to continue the legacy of rock that has informed their creative styles. – Uforia
