2018.11.17: Take a Nap Single
Built on Orion's intricate guitar and direct vocals written in September of 2018, the "Take A Nap" single is reminiscent of a summer spent with a friend or lover so comfortable to be near that words aren't necessary. The supporting harmony of the vocals, violin and piano work with the songwriting to create a singular Melted Crayon sound.
Featured Crayons: Andrew, Elie, Nan, Orion
2018.05.21: Breathe E.P.
Orion was stranded at Orchard Hill Studios after playing the 2018 Saluda Art Festival and decided to make it count. He challenged himself to compose a new piece, record 4 songs and release an EP in 24 hours.
After a Sunday morning spent writing Champagne, Orion called Ryan over to spend the afternoon tracking and a following night mixing. 24 long hours later, a collection of 2 of Orion's newest songs pair with 2 of his older favorites on the Breathe E.P.
Featured Crayons: Orion, Ryan
