After a decade of putting out albums and touring, Nebraskan singer-songwriter Orion Walsh has released “So Many Places to See” with folk/roots label Sower Records. Brimming with vivid storytelling, this is truly a mature step forward for this well-traveled troubadour. Walsh has previously released seven albums with independent labels Sower Records & Indie Vision Music. He also released two full length albums with his previous band Slow Coming Day (Tooth & Nail Records) which had major label distribution.
Walsh has been touring for over a decade and has performed over 1,000 concerts all over the United States as well as multiple tours to Europe both as a solo artist and with his band. Orion has performed his music in 15 different countries. His new album was released a few months ago and got really goos reviews. Orion has played several times at events organised by U-NITE.
“Walsh crafted his best album yet, injecting a pop sensibility into his sharply crafted, folk-rooted songs” -Lincoln Journal Star
“There’s a restlessness to his music and a power in his voice, a constant need to keep moving and changing the scenery, which leads to Walsh’s status as a musical Zelig, keeping his audiences guessing.” -The Inlander
“Good songs, well played, and pleasantly sung” -Americana UK
“Well-developed song-writing and lyricism worth its weight in gold” -Tuned Up
“A truly independent musician who doesn’t have to rely on the handouts of a donor to produce the music he wants to create. If you’re looking for a clean break from all the crappy generic music out there, please take a minute out of your day and give Orion Walsh a listen, you won’t regret it.” -Indie Vision Music
HAVAN /ˈheɪvʌn/ is the umbrella under which Hanne Vanhyfte-Dollery shares her ‘moments of inspiration’. She aspires to marry the eclectic nature of music with storytelling and so capture the sound of this time and age to minister to the 21st century human being. As a child of this generation she has the tools and the freedom to unapologetically tiptoe between different genres and sonic terrains. Her distinctive sense of rhythm is the backbone that is at the centre of every piece of music she writes, there is an undeniable pulse, from acoustic singer-songwriter psalms to the cinematic soundtracks.
This comes natural to Hanne, having fallen in love with rhythm as a four year old – tapping tables, pots and pans and feeling in her element living in Africa later in life. She intends to use the connections she has with so many cultures and places and collaborate with people from all walks of life.
Hanne is a member of U-TRIBE
