Dynamic New Country Sound Intense Country with a Rock Footprint
If you grew up in a Canadian small town, you can relate to Orchard Sky's debut single "Canadian Party Song”.
Riding in the back of a pickup truck. Drinking out of red solo cups. It is easy to see why Rogers SportsNet decided to use the song during last year's NHL Playoffs and the Battle Of Alberta. "Canadian Party Song" is a Canadian anthem that makes you want to stamp your feet and show off your Canadian pride.
Emerging from the Edmonton music scene, the group's long time musical collaborators Mitch Smith and Andreas Wegner were in search of a new lead vocalist, when they struck gold in landing two-time Western Canadian Music Award winner Krystle Dos Santos. Along with her stunningly soulful voice, she brings to Orchard Sky a powerful stage presence that has also been displayed in productions of Dreamgirls, and The Chelsea Hotel: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen.
With a sound that has been described as "Sass Jordan if she sang country" and "Carrie Underwood if she sang rock" Orchard Sky has something for everyone. "Canadian Party Song" is just the first taste from their debut EP, with other foot stomping tracks like "Rollin' 7's" "Flashbang" and the heartfelt "Honest".
"Canadian Party Song comes to us with an impeccable instrumental, in the most intense line of country, but
with a rock footprint, no doubt. Leaving the composition in an instrumental parallel between Lynard Skynard
and Trace Adkins, but with an extraordinary originality and intense, powerful vocal lines with melodies that just
won't leave our heads" - Roadie Music
