Biography

Since 2002 The Mighty Orq has been performing solo and with his band across the US and Europe. He has won multiple awards, released seven albums, and an instructional DVD for solo resonator slide guitar. He is a uniquely talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a focus in the American Roots Music genres.

Long know as a stand-out singer and guitarist, Orq has matured as a writer and arranger on his most recent release, “Love In A Hurricane.” Where previously the musical emphasis was on raucous drum and guitar lines, here Orq takes a more song-centered approach letting songs dictate the instrumentation rather than the other way around. New compositions such as the title track as well as “Say It With Silence,” and the Weissenborn instrumental “Cannon Ball” feature an experienced composer, instrumentalist, and singer beginning to reach his stride.
