Asked to comment on the new CD, Orban had this to say: “Following a long hiatus from music-making, and after performing again for some 20+ years now, I’d been thinking about making a record for some time. But I didn’t want to just record a bunch of blues covers… I wanted to showcase something a bit more personal. That said, I’m a bit of a late bloomer. It took me a long time to even consider actually writing songs. But here they are. Some of these songs have been played and refined at shows over the last couple of years, while others were written and arranged specifically for this project.”
He went on to add, “While definitely rooted in the Blues (you know, with a capital “B”), these songs are hardly what would be considered “traditional” blues… but that’s fine with me; there are more than enough talented folks out there playing traditional blues music. My inspiration for these tunes has come from numerous sources: from folks like James Harman and Rick Estrin to Leigh ‘Little Queenie’ Harris and Seth Walker, to Bob Dylan, and even Norah Jones… along with countless nights hanging-out in the wonderful music community that can be found in Doylestown, PA. But in the end, it’s all me… backed by a stellar group of musicians, who have generously tolerated – even indulged – my numerous musical idiosyncrasies. I hope you enjoy it!”
