In early 2017, on the heels of the split up of his band, Fabian and The Breaks, singer/songwriter Fabian Michael Moran began the search to start a new project. By summer, bassist Preston Light and drummer Darrell Monk had joined forces to start crafting new material. Later that year, the three began working on an ambitious double album titled “Everything Is Nothing”, a call back album to early rock and roll and 70’s fuzz rock. They enlisted the help of seasoned studio owner/producer/engineer and close friend, Christian Deibert of GoodShed Studio in Canton, TX and began tracking in the fall. But before the album’s completion, the band was forced to take an 8 month hiatus for personal reasons.
They never gave up on the album and re-convened the tracking after the break. It was during the second birth of the band that lead guitarist Cameron O’Reilly was asked to sit in on one of the songs for a studio session. The band and he immediately found chemistry and Cameron was asked to join full time. Much of the previous guitar work Fabian had laid down was cut, and Cameron and he re-tracked guitar parts for more than half of the record. The album was released digitally on Halloween 2018 and physically in November 2018, almost exactly a year after its conception.
Quickly after the release, the band enjoyed radio play from TCU radio in Fort Worth and were featured on 97.1’s Loud and Local, even before playing their fist show. With roots in DFW and East TX, they began their multi region show schedule and continue to stay busy live, as well as working on writing the second album. They plan on every record being a double album showcasing a wide variety of music genres and styles. They also plan to release singles and one of a kind merch for their most loyal fans.
In fall 2019, Chris Goodson was added as the new drummer following Monk's Departure.
They are quickly becoming known as one of the more solid outfits in the Texas rock scene, sharing stages with notable artists at iconic venues and gathering a fierce group of fans sending out the signal and spreading the message!
The name Little Universe came from Fabian’s intense love of astrophysics and a Neil Degrasse Tyson reference. We are all our own little universe, comprised of the same ingredients that form the stars. The band slogan is “Stella Carmina”, latin for “Star Songs”. Simply put, Little Universe means creation and inclusion. The band hopes to foster a culture of free thinking, compassion and art, as well as continue to make rock and roll on their own terms, with no rules!
