Introspective. Pensive. Broken. Aspiring to be whole. The music of OrangeG attempts to repair the weathered soul of its writer by processing the ups and downs of life into heartfelt indie-folk. I invite you to listen and learn a bit more about me!
A Musical Journey
OrangeG (he/they) is a one-person musician based in Pittsburgh, PA. His day job is in the sciences and much of his music is influenced by his experiences in that hypercompetitive arena. OrangeG intensified his songwriting and recording efforts in the pandemic. Influences include indie folk/americana acts like Conor Oberst, Neko Case, Wilco and Jake Bellows, but extend to roots in classic rock, prog and the blues. OrangeG's music most often has a self-reflective nature and he plays all the instruments. During the pandemic, OrangeG has been playing every week at the Hambone's Virtual Open Mic
