Orlon Gunner is the pet project of Canadian artist R.B. Armieri. As a multi-instrumentalist, short filmmaker, and multimedia developer, Armieri has made a career as a jack-of-all-trades. Starting with a string of almost entirely DIY, award-winning short films during his late teens, Armieri has worked on a variety of projects with a similar do-it-all approach. In October 2017, he began self-releasing music using the alias Orlon Gunner. His debut self-titled EP garnered some attention, receiving campus radio airplay; notably charting for four weeks on CJRU Ryerson’s Top 30. Armieri recorded the EP out of his Toronto apartment, aiming for a “wall of sound” like production, playing and recording all the instruments himself, in a small bedroom. Apart from music and film, Armieri is also the co-founder of the website, Housecreep; a crowdsourced database of homes where murders and other crimes or oddities have occurred. The website launched in 2013, and went viral shortly thereafter due to its unusual and controversial premise. Now Montreal-based, Armieri is currently writing and recording new music out of his basement studio.
