Artist of the Week: Orson

This week, my Artist of the Week is Orson. Seeing them, Friday night, on Charlotte Church's Show, performing their hit song, "No Tomorrow," with Charlotte, put them in the front of my mind. Although originally from Los Angeles, the band have found the key to their success here, in England. Last October, they flew to Manchester to play at In The City. In November, they were signed by Mercury Records, then toured with Duran Duran in the UK. Their first single, "No Tomorrow," which is the featured song on my profile, this week, topped the UK charts within three weeks of entry.
This past May, their debut album, "Bright Idea," was released and their second single is the title track. The album was recorded in Hollywood and financed by the band, themselves, at a cost of just $5,000. They have been described as "the missing link between The Rolling Stones and Scissor Sisters." You can check them out on Myspace, at: If you add them as friends, tell them I sent you. Ironically, all five members of the band have the same birthday, July 4th, the day after mine. How cool is that? Anyway, I came first.
