Orion Shoals are a Los Angeles-based indie rock band.
The band formed in the summer of 2020 in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Joe Olney and multi-instrumentalist/producer Floyd Kellogg, wrote and recorded the first three tracks during that summer. The name originated from a real location on a nautical chart that Olney spotted in the studio.
Since then, Olney has performed throughout Los Angeles at venues such as The Mint, The Hotel Cafe, and The Viper Room. Kellogg plays bass and tours in the band, Andy Frasco & the U.N.
On February 4th, 2022, Orion Shoals released their fourth track, “Lullaby.” The song is performed and written by Olney and produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Zack Djurich (Kanye West, Cordae)
Orion Shoals have a rustic yet progressive sound. They are influenced by such acts as Lord Huron, The Velvet Underground, The War on Drugs, Townes Van Zandt, TV On The Radio and David Bowie.
Stay tuned for multiple singles coming out in 2022!
