Bio

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.

Always known as a stand-out guitarist and vocalist, Orq has matured both as a writer, arranger, and producer. Where early-on the musical emphasis was on raucous drum and guitar lines, now Orq takes 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 his current album entitled "Love In A Hurricane" feature an experienced composer, instrumentalist, and singer beginning to reach his stride.
