About The Orion Experience:

Laying down driving rhythms, alluring sing-along hooks and the fearless swagger to pull it all off with a wicked smile, The Orion Experience would be perfectly suited for a slot on The Midnight Special right between the Bee Gees and The Romantics.

The five songs on The Orion Experience’s NYC Girl were directly inspired by the energetic, feel-good music of a less complicated era. Adam Ant, George Michael, Nile Rogers and Elton John have all been channeled on this record, but the result is something refreshingly new, and definitely Now.

Frontman and songwriter Orion Simprini explains: “When I write, I try to tip my hat to my retro influences, but the goal is to recreate the music that I love and make it my own. I draw from every sound – pop, indie rock, super-produced, organic - a rainbow spectrum, with a little bit of everything.”

The Orion Experience released the full length Cosmicandy in 2007, and followed up in 2008 with the EP Heartbreaker. Critics were enamored of the band’s enthusiastic embrace of the sweeter elements of rock, while still showcasing serious songwriting chops. As Amplifier Magazine put it: “The Orion Experience is proof that a pop band can be innocuous and infectious and irresistible and still retain credibility.”
