Marty O’Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra has a bluesy orchestral sound that harkens back to John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf, with hints of Tom Waits and the Quintette du Hot Club de Paris. Yet their music doesn’t sound like anyone else’s. It has its own melancholy appeal, moody, haunting, and oddly inspiring. With Marty on the electrified Resonator guitar and vocals, Chris Lynch on fiddle, Ben Berry on upright bass, and Matt Goff on drums, the band has toured nationally and internationally, and last year released their debut album, Pray for Rain.

 

“A band true to its name,” says NPR: “soulful." The website 4000MilesToNashville praises their “raw musical excellence.” They’re straight outta Santa Cruz, and tonight they’re taking the stage at the Freight!
