Kris Orlowski. Is that a person, name of a band? Is it a man? Is it a woman? These are questions a few of us have asked ourselves after seeing the name of this mystery artist. The answer is Kris Orlwoski is a band named after a man, a man who happens to be the lead singer and front man for the band.
We would like Kris Orlowski regardless of where the band’s roots lie, but it makes it all the more sweeter when they happen to be from Seattle. The five-piece band has been traipsing across the Pacific Northwest touching the souls of whoever they meet with their indie pop/rock sound. The band even performed at CWU last November.
The band has one album, three EPs and most recently a single titled “Believer” to their name. “Believer” was released earlier this month while the Pieces We Are EP is their other most recent works. Pieces We Are was done in collaboration with Andrew Joslyn. Joslyn is a local native who is a violinist and composer who contributed to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s Grammy Nominated The Heist. One fan called Pieces We Are “Folkestral,” and we think that’s a pretty good description.
Kris Orlowski will be performing in the PNW in Portland on March 22 and at The Showbox in Seattle on April 12. The ‘Burg is giving away tickets to the Seattle show so be sure to pay attention to our social media for a chance to win!
