Sometimes greatness is subtle; sometimes it reveals itself most brilliantly through its simplicity. Sitting with a cup of coffee (or some good whiskey) and watching the rain fall outside is coupled perfectly by the music of Kris Orlowski, a Seattelite who is slowly but surely turning heads and making himself known; and it’s no doubt why with a voice like his.
And if listening to his voice alone isn’t enough, his vulnerability and unguarded, palpable lyrics are sure to move you. He speaks from the soul about life below the surface, things we wish we heard more of.
On that note (literally), Andrew Joslyn is also a Seattle musician and fully loaded with talent. He has been playing violin since he was 5 and graduated from Berklee College of music with a Masters in Music Business. Now a seasoned performer, composer, and arranger, he has worked with some of the most iconic Northwest musicians and beyond, a few recently being Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
Orlowski and Joslyn have teamed up in order to release a five-song orchestral folk rock record. Pieces We Are is now available on iTunes and you better go get it. Here are a few songs off the EP:
