UFORIA first began as a solo project by front man Michael Ursini (Singer/Songwriter/Rhythm Guitar), which over the years has morphed into a talented four-piece of hard rock that has released three EPs since 2012. Influenced by bands like Billy Talent, Incubus, Finger Eleven and Our Lady Peace, among others, the group also consists of Adam Brik (Lead Guitar), Daniel Salij (Bass) and Dylan Piercey (Drums).
Uforia’s previous releases include the debut EP Imagining (2012) and the fan-funded follow-up Transmutation (2015). The band has won a number of contests including the Hard Rock Rising Canada contest (2013), the opportunity to open for hometown heroes Billy Talent (2014) and the Jack Daniel’s Supporting Act contest (2016). “Fight or Flight” ranked #4 on the best songs of 2016 at CJIM Montreal’s Rock Station and 91X in Belleville. Oshawa’s 94.9 The Rock FM featured Fight or Flight (EP) on the Best of Generation Next 2016.
