The idea of a “music scene” is one that is lost on The Orphan, The Poet. Developing their craft in rural southern Ohio, the members of this 4-piece indie rock outfit founded their group on a musical island—not a single band or venue in nearly 100 miles. Though anything but isolationists, the group does wear their solitary inception as a badge of honor, giving it credit for much of the honesty and introspection found in their music. Furthermore, the band has made great strides outgrowing their modest beginnings.
Since releasing their debut EP “In Brevity,” The Orphan, The Poet has been featured in Substream Music Press, licensed music to Spark’s Beverage Company, ranked in Smartpunk’s Top 40 Unsigned Bands and were recently chosen for PureVolume’s 2010 Holiday Sampler alongside the likes of Rookie of the Year and YMAEWK. This January the band will be teaming up with producer, Kris Crummett (Emarosa, Tides of Man), to record their up-coming EP, slated for a spring 2011 release.
