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 allow your soul to shine. 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. This glimpse has brought forth The Divine Game, Orion’s first album, recorded in Brooklyn with some of the finest players from Philly, New York City and beyond. The record— made over the better part of the past year— is filled with melody and texture and is painted with the many soundscapes of both city and country. These songs are brought to life with Orion’s commitment to grace and love, to letting old baggage go, to the journey towards freedom— with instrumentation ranging from a sousaphone to a melodica, fully orchestrated string quartets to a kazoo.
