Half an Orange with a Electronic Classic



Half an Orange features Ryan Chadwick, Dan Hanna, Andrew Spellman, and myself (Michael Maloof). 
Ryan and I went to Catholic school together starting in second grade. Ryan actually taught me how to play guitar and was the first person I felt comfortable singing in front of. All four of us ended up in the same fraternity in college where we had a crew of guys playing music together every night. Dan and I co-founded a music start-up out of college that focused on music analytics for indie bands. When the start-up folded we started focusing on recording and releasing our own music with Ryan and Andrew. 
I wrote a lot of our lyrics while living in Rio de Janeiro for a year. The first week there my girlfriend and I had our bank accounts frozen and we hadn't yet found a place to live. We basically ended up homeless there for a week, frantically trying to make friends to have places to sleep and spending all our time on the beach. Despite the struggles of being in a new country with no money, home, phone, nor jobs we had a blast because we had each other. This ended up being the basis for the lyrics in "I Need U To Stay".
