Album Notes
Orris was born out of a genuine desire to create something truly unique and nakedly honest. Orris has fused soundscapes and songs with authenticy through exploration, crafting what would ultimately result in a whole new sound comparable to Coldplay and U2 meet Bright Eyes and Sigur Ros. Building textural soundscapes centered around piano and voice, Orris conjured the sound Music Connection Magazine predicts “will win fans among anyone looking for music with a soul.”

Raised in Twin Peaks and Chicago, Orris is the son of an ordained minister. By the age of four, he was singing and playing piano competitively and in his teen years went on to win a vocal scholarship to the Wheaton Conservatory where he studied voice, piano and composition. During his studies, he ventured outside the traditional curriculum and delved into experimental exploration of sound, as well as a long-suppressed attraction to Eastern forms of meditation and spirituality.

Orris' spiritual and creative intentions have resulted in music reviewers say “makes you believe you’re experiencing something big,” is “intriguing and wholly unique” and in the end, seeks to give something genuine to its audience.

to write a review


the music is sooo wow
when u first hear it ur blown away


Soulful Rock. The only music I've listened to for a month is Orris.
This stuff plays like a mantra that gets richer every time you listen with some incredible songwriting and badass playing. And the distinctive powerful, soulful, sensitive voice of the lead singer... this guy could do for the soulfulness of indie rock what Annie Lennox did for mainstream rock in the 80s. Maybe better.


Would definitely recemmend this to all my friends!
The benediction is very soulful which preps you up for a wonderful journey sonically. It's rare to find records lie this, it keeps me interested from beginning to the end track. THis one is definitely a keeper. Can't wait for the volumes to come.

Thoughtful music for smart people
Orris is thoughtful music for smart people. Each song on Seriphim Circus is an experience it itself. Beautiful lyrics and interesting layers of sounds and sensations makes listeners want to keep this cd on contenous play. This music has a very post-modern feel but without the canned overly digitized sound so dominate in music today.
