A combination of two voices and guitars that thread between howling rock and easy indie allow Orchards to deliver high-octane energy rock ‘n’ roll layered in melody and rage.

The penultimate of the five tracks is The Grey.

Indie Music Tips #16 Free Music With Boxed Wine


For the past few months I have been gradually transferring the series to this URL and here is the first of the fresh as yet unheard recordings, only, my apologies to Chris and Ralph that it has taken me since our conversation in June to get here.

In this episode the conversation centres around the concept of giving your music away for free and how you can gain leverage from taking that option. We also touch on alternative revenue streams, marketing of a full LP, the importance of track order on a release and understanding your audience. Somehow we also touch on transforming into Beyonce…..
