Excorde is a new alternative rock band made up of Jimena Arroyo, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Jonnie Cook, from Chicago, USA. They met on SoundCloud and have been writing songs together for four years now.
Jimena’s emotional voice combined with Jonnie’s distinctive guitar playing will transport you to another dimension, where catchy choruses, killer guitar riffs and meaningful lyrics are imbued throughout the listening experience with Excorde.
Their songs feature a broad yet cohesive fusion of genres influenced by 80 and 90’s rock bands of adult oriented rock, progressive rock, pop-rock, metal, alternative country rock and their own unique sound. They feel that, within their music, you will identify the best of familiar components of these genres blended seamlessly with a real plethora of new ideas and originality.
Their primary goal is to establish themselves as a songwriting team. Having tested a wide variety of rock genres/styles/nuances/ideas, they feel that, as a whole, they demonstrate a cohesive and recognizable identity on their own.
Throughout 2019, they will be releasing a new single every 5-6 weeks until they complete their first album "Once Upon a Void."

Roy, from Chatsong
"Wow, you need to hear this ballad for sure "In Honor of Love" by Excorde. It has a stunning guitar intro and lovely synthesizers with an 80/90's sound. This music could be the soundtrack for a movie, and her voice in this song is so impressive and pure. Like I wrote before, she can bring a song so good over. I really enjoyed it. "
