Just to let everyone know, I lost my partner at the beginning of August, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back into this blog, whether it be new posts or reupping dead links. I will let you know when and if I am ready to come back to this blog, but for the moment it is unfortunately not a priority. Sorry.


If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Or-N-More - Or-N-More (1991)

Or-N-More was a pop duo that consisted of the oddly named singer Orfeh and producer Mike More. Fresh out of a performing arts school, New Yorker Orfeh was tapped by More to front the group. They were immediately signed to a major label and released this, their sole album. The album is very early-90s, drenched in the pop-funk that was huge at the time. Orfeh has a great voice, somewhat reminiscent of Taylor Dayne, and was a very attractive lady. So why did the group fail to make an impact? The single “Everyotherday” was a minor dance hit and almost managed to hit the Billboard Top 40, reaching #46, but the group failed to capitalize on it. According to Orfeh, they had bad management and no label support. In a time when a million dance acts were popping up “every other day”, that didn’t help. Plus, they lacked a unique image. Thankfully Orfeh has carried on as a Broadway performer. She even appears in the new movie Across The Universe. The whereabouts of Mike More, however, are unknown, and his only credit of note since Or-N-More was producing solo work for Freedom Williams of C&C Music Factory. More’s the pity…

  1. Are you sure that this abum wasn't a hit - apparently it's been certified gold, which isn't exactly bad...

  3. Btw - just noticed that Sail On is really badly damaged - quite a lot of the track has been damaged so the msuic is obscured by static :S

  5. At last, found Mike More :D

    After his short-lived recording career ended, Mike continued to write and produce music for other artists. Most recently, he founded the web-based media distribution company, Nabbr. He also founded his own music production and publishing company, Slick Boyz Productions. He is also a voting member of the Producers & Engineers wing of NARAS.

    He's also contributed songs to Orfeh's new solo album so the two are obviously still in touch :D
