This October 2016, The Orchard will be heading to OCL studios in Calgary, to work with iconic producer, Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks, Johnny Cash, Wilco). Jim’s management was sent demos from this Edmonton based band and in no time emails were going back and forth setting dates to record The Orchard’s next collection of music. Jim expressed interest right away and has provided the band with glowing reviews.

Jim also expressed his vision and sound comparisons for The Orchard’s sound and song writing to early Crowded House meets 10 000 Maniacs meets The Grateful Dead, Sixpense None the Richer meets The Pretenders, Tedeschi Trucks Band meets Chris Robinson Brotherhood meets Lake Street Dive.” – Rob Smith 

After corresponding with The Orchard, Jim said this about two of the band’s tunes:

Dream Inside A Dream – “The Orchard’s Hit” 

Sometimes I Wonder – “For the critics, honest, real, feels like The Orchard” – Jim Scott 

Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada recording artists, The Orchard are a band that are hard to forget.

The Orchard’s sophomore album “Georgia”, recorded with Juno nominated producer Russell Broom, was released in August of 2014. The band has released four radio singles from the album across Canada, getting airplay across the map. Singles include “She Don’t Play Fair”, “Angel Eyes”, “Gone Missin’” and “Georgia”.

The Orchard is continuously pulling from what seems to be a bottomless pit of sounds and inspirations, with the help of their talented band mates, Jason Koop (drums) and Andreas Wagner (bass). The deeply emotional, vocal like guitar work of Mitch Smith and spine tingling, powerful vocals of Kasha Anne have got people catching onto the infectious vibe of what makes up The Orchard.

The ACMA (Alberta Country Music Association) has recognized The Orchard by nominating them for several awards over the past few years, including Group of The Year, Rising Star, Fans’ Choice and nominations for Song of the Year.

 New album coming early 2017!
