OUT NOW

Late on Christmas Eve

Out NOW on AD Music.

A beautiful collection of traditional Christmas carols from Steve Orchard, produced in his own inimitable acoustic instrumental style. The music displays some excellent arrangement skills, while as one would expect, guitar and keyboards work seamlessly with wonderfully dreamy orchestral arrangements. The overall result is a relaxing and uplifting blend of melodic and joyous seasonal music that makes no pretence to be anything other than what it is - a celebration of Christmas!

Undersail

Out NOW on AD Music the long awaited album 'Undersail'.

'Undersail' is a daring and utterly captivating instrumental music voyage drawing its inspiration from the fateful voyage of the Titanic on the 15th April 1912. Indeed, the release date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the tragic event. Melodic, atmospheric and thoroughly enchanting, 'Undersail' perfectly captures the essence of its epic subject matter. - AD Music

Riverboat out on 30th August
NEWS UPDATE - 03.08.11

As I promised on my last news letter to reveal the company releasing 'Riverboat ' it's....( drum roll..Kerching!!) The wonderful AD Music http://www.admusiconline.com/main/steve-orchard.php

So many have enquired that I've been bursting to tell. Now we can, at last, launch 'Riverboat' For all those, 'Far From The Madding Crowd'

Travel with me from our starting point at 'Kingfisher Falls'. Feel the freshness of morning when 'Poachers Dawn' wakes our sleepy eyes............. perhaps you might want to feed the ducks who are so hungry in the mornings, 'Ducks & Drakes'...... after a long day meandering English waterways, let's tie up & build a fire, perhaps a barbecue, during our 'Night Moorings'.

Perhaps we might make a 'Buttercup Necklace' for each other, if we can remember from our childhood? Next day, the 'Summer Storm' moves in quickly giving a refreshing & pungent fragrance to the earth. We stumble upon a funfair at 'Priddy Fair', with steam organs & galloping horses, country cider & coconut shy's. After a sticky toffee apple we travel to the coolness of the Abbey & take a chilled drink from the 'Abbey Fountain'. All is still here after the excitement of the fair. 'Downstream' we tie the boat just to listen to these wonderful surroundings & revel in the beautiful sounds of nature..........& drift into a deep summer sleep as we dream a 'River Lullaby'

This was 'Riverboat' in my mind............ perhaps you might discover it too?

Kindest regards as always.

“There are two key words to describe the underlying essence of my music. The first is UPLIFTING & the second is POSITIVETY. If I have left you with either of those feelings then I have succeeded in passing on my own true sense of wellbeing in the very fibre of each composition. We must all endeavour to be the best we can be & start each new day knowing that, our life is still full of possibilities, what ever age group you prescribe yourself to.”
