Singer/songwriters share a night of music…“I saw Orion sing, one night on my radio show and I still haven’t recovered. He has the music, the charm and a mystique about him, that touches my heart and soul…
I believe he’s the next big thing to come out of the Philly scene.” –Gene Shay – “The Dean of American Folk DJs”
Founder, Philadelphia Folk Fest, DJ, WXPN & Folk Alley Orion Freeman is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing seeker from the woods just beyond the mortar and bricks of Philadelphia. His souled-out, reggae-infused, flamenco-tinged, bluesy folk-rock aspires to move: your shoes; your heart; the cobwebs, so as to peer into your soul. Hovering somewhere within the chasm between the worldly and the divine, his music is an intimate glimpse into the spiraling states of freedom and folly, playfulness and prayer.Michael Coleman burst seemingly out of nowhere onto the Charlottesville music scene in early 2011. As a singer and songwriter he draws from his religious upbringing, life experiences and influences ranging from Otis Redding to Dave Matthews. His skills as a jazz drummer translate themselves to the guitar to create a truly unique rhythmical sound. Rounded off with a voice that is as raw as it is soothing and passionate, Coleman’s music has struck a chord with the people of Charlottesville and beyond.
