“THESE ALBUMS FEEL SO INTIMATE & PERSONAL, HAVING BEEN RECORDED IN THE SOLITUDE OF MY OWN LITTLE STUDIO WORLD, WITH ONLY MY JUDGEMENT TO GUIDE ME & THE FINAL PRODUCT SUBMITTED TO MY WIFE WHO’S, COMMON SENSE APPROACH KEEPS ME FROM MEANDERING OFF TRACK.”

   Zanzibar    2016

   Peripheral Vision    2016
A slight change of direction and feel for Steve with ‘Peripheral Vision’, one with an Alien presence! It’s most definitely NOT a dark atmospheric X-files style outing, but more of an interesting, melodic sonic journey building on the artists usual melodic style, but this time round, with a more rhythmic and synth based ‘alien’ twist.

   Still the River Flows    2015
‘Still the River Flows’ once again returns to the water, a source of inspiration so often found in Steve Orchard’s music. And as one would expect, the music washes over the listener in gentle rhythmic waves, much like the peaceful flow of the river the music so eloquently describes.

   Pilgrimage    2014
‘Pilgrimage’ continues the trend of laid back guitars and piano mixed with electronic sounds. Where there are rhythms, they’re purposeful yet unfussy, providing gentle rhythmic motion. The emphasis is again on mood and a feel and it’s all very chilled.

The coming together and bonding of one Earth, one people and that ever present Moon watching us grow and develop all through our lives.
