International Orange (a.k.a. IO) is the brainchild of New York City veteran musicians and longtime friends Todd Isler and David Phelps. Leo Traversa provides the grooviest bass and Adam Morrison's keys are the perfect sauce.
IO's innovative funky originals marry the slide guitar of the American South to the sensibilities of India, Africa, Brazil and beyond.
The members of IO have played around the globe. Their genre-crossing resume stretches from Joe Lovano to Phish's Mike Gordon, Angelique Kidjo, Tania Maria, John Medeski, Abdoulaye Debate and Francis Mbappe, Ivan Neville, Melvin Sparks, Steve Kimock, Jack Mcduff, Betty Buckley and on and on...
IO has played many of NYC's finest venue's such as the Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center and individually, music festivals around the world.
