In the words of the Monterey County Weekly, "Orr's weathered voice is a cross between Peter Gabriel and Eddie Vedder". Blending his many musical influences, from folk to hip-hop, jazz to rock 'n' roll, classical to alt-country, Orr's style of song crafting is at once original and authentic, unique in the modern musical landscape. Whether performed solo or with accompaniment, his songs are captivating, engaging, and thoughtful.
Orr's recent release New Imperials (2022) incorporates elements of indie-folk, Americana, alt-rock, and balladeer song crafting. With heartfelt, intelligent lyrics and catchy, soulful melodies, New Imperials is an album that has the unique effect of taking the listener on an adventure. In early 2023, Orr will be back in the studio with 3-time Grammy nominated, Nashville-based producer/drummer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) to release a follow-up project.
