Mighty Orq and the Unusuals w/ Little Outfit
Since 2002 The Mighty Orq has been performing solo and with his band across the US and Europe. He has won multiple awards, released six 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.
Mid-2014 has seen major changes in the band; the departure of long-time drummer Matt Johnson and addition of Barry Seelen on Organ. The songs and instrumentation have matured as well. Where previously the musical focus was on raucous drum and guitar lines, now Orq has taken a more song-centered approach letting songs dictate the instrumentation rather than the other way around . New compositions such as “Love In A Hurricane,” “Say It With Silence,” and the Weissenborn instrumental “Cannon Ball” from the forthcoming album entitled “Love In A Hurricane” feature an experienced composer, instrumentalist, and singer beginning to reach his stride.
Rooted in the modern folk movement,
delivers crafted songwriting with open melodic arrangements and soulful harmonies. Alt-Country/Folk-Rock with Texas swagger.
