Locals Only Artist Of The Month: Kris Orlowski

May 2, 2016

Seattle has long been a frontier town that attracts musicians who want to invent and reinvent – from Jimi Hendrix to Kurt Cobain to the next unnamed musical star. While the sound may change from decade to decade, the Northwest’s music scene is as vibrant as ever. And here at The End we feel it’s important to help put our homegrown talent in the forefront by giving you a taste of our city's musical richness. 


On his new record Often in the Pause Kris Orlowski continues to explore the themes of authenticity, loss, and a search for connection that has always been central to his songwriting. Orlowski has grown into a potent songwriter, and his meditative, melodic dream pop, shaded with flecks of alt-country and soft rock, pushes past the current crop of overly earnest Pacific Northwest indie folk to something distinctly American and positively timeless.  

Kris has been busy since the release of his received debut album, "Believer" (2014), with multiple national tours (Jamestown Revival, Ivan & Alyosha) and features on primetime television (Grey's Anatomy, Tomorrow People, Hart of Dixie).  Kris and the band release their sophomore album "Often in the Pause" on May 6th, 2016.
