Original member Dana Colley and band play the songs of Morphine and beyond

 

Vapors of Morphine are a power trio featuring electric baritone sax, drums, 2 string slide bass, and sometimes guitar. Saxophonist Dana Colley is the through-line between Vapors and “low rock” pioneers Morphine, who’s leader Mark Sandman left this earth while performing onstage in Italy in 1999. With singer and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Lyons and drummer Tom Arey, VoM perform much of the Morphine repertoire plus new material and original versions of selective covers. They expand on the ethereal, hypnotic sounds popularized by Morphine in the nineties and dig into their influences, from African music to delta Blues.
