About Edgar Allan Poets
Cortina d'ampezzo, Italy
CHRISIS (vox, guitar) was born in South Africa where he spent the first years of his life. Son of a flight attendant, he travelled a lot. So he moved to Algeria and finally to Cortina d Ampezzo (Italy) where he now lives. There he started playing guitar and composing his own music. He changed different bands before he met Lop Noor; together they started the Edgar Allan Poets project. Their sound is smooth but strong, it is sad and tender; lyrics are poems inspired by Poe’s novels.
LOP NOOR (Drums) was born in Bergen (Norway). After a few years, he moved to Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy). There, he started studying drums and percussions. Then he moved to Verona where he got the conservatoire’s diploma. As he returned to Cortina he met ChrisIs and they immediately experienced a very good musical feeling. In September 2006 they gave birth to the Edgar Allan Poets.
