Deep Orchid proudly announce the Spring 2015 release of their 1st album, ‘As Long As You’re Around’, featuring Peter Jong Chang on all instruments and Maria Borrelli on vocals.
The Deep Orchid founding duo, Maria Borrelli (vocals) and Peter Jong Chang (all instruments) each came from a long musical history working with various musical styles, bands, and genres throughout the years. After their first meeting and writing collaboration in 2003; via Station of Dreams based in Oakland, CA, they knew there was something special about the music being created. They soon began a musical journey creating an eclectic rock sound – uniquely molded by the inclusion of amazing lyricists, rappers, and writers blending talents over various rhythms of reggae, jazz, rock, and blues.
‘As Long as You’re Around’, is their first project showcasing the harvest of these musical seeds; planted years ago, rooted in enriched soil of talent and diversity. Peter Jong Chang’s amazing guitar leads and tones range the spectrum of smooth and sultry to grungy and distorted, and it’s the catalyst that drives Deep Orchid’s signature sound. Whether you are fancy dancing to the Latin rhythms of ‘Hot Guitar’, relaxing to the soothing soulful sounds of ‘Easy to Love You’ or craving more of the heavy rock plead of ‘Higher Need’, this album is anything but mundane and demands to be heard!
