Orphan Colours


About Orphan Colours

After the indefinite hiatus in 2013 of popular UK alt-country outfit ahab, songwriter Steven Llewellyn went on to form his own band with the help of ahab originator Dave Burn and former bassist Graham Knight.

Being firmly part of the London Americana scene made it easy to get involved in collaborations with members of bands like Danny & The Champions of The World, who’s drummer Steve Brookes, having already toured heavily with ahab, quickly became a permanent member of Orphan Colours, along with Fred Abbott, lead guitarist with Noah & the Whale.

The band have some impressive credentials with writers Llewellyn and Burn honing their songwriting craft during their tenure with ahab, who swiftly built a reputation as an unmissable live act after their electric performances almost every major UK festival, and subsequent tours in Scandinavia, Germany & Australia.

Their debut EP High Hopes was released in February 2016 with the catchy, Tom Petty-esque lead single Won't Let You Down creating a huge buzz.

The band are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album "All In Red" - to be released in 2018 on popular independent label At The Helm Records. With an already established fanbase, huge critical acclaim and solid underground credibility so firmly ensconced in their DNA, Orphan Colours have rapidly established themselves as the hottest band to emerge from the London Country/Roots circuit. Highly, highly recommended
