River's Edge Bands & Artists
Orange Mammoth is Chris Rowe (vocals, guitar), Howard Brumberg (guitar), Darren Hammel (bass), and Mike Smales (drums, percussion). Orange Mammoth formed in 2012 when Howard, Darren, and Mike met Chris after their prior band, Closet Romantic, had lost its frontwoman. The foursome immediately began working on new tunes, and after a short stint of releasing an album under the name Madeline and the Metropolis, they finally decided on the name Orange Mammoth for their band. Their music is likely best described as indie-rock with lots of reverb and delay on the guitars accompanied by driving bass and drum rhythms. Orange Mammoth first released their self-titled album, Orange Mammoth EP (2014) and more recently Space and Time (2018). Orange Mammoth is currently writing and recording music at Smales’ home studio in Oakmont and they’re currently aiming for a winter release for their next EP.
