Marty O'Reily and the Old Soul Orchestra
Through extensive listening and studying of the early delta greats, O'Reilly developed a unique foundation onto which he would incorporate themes from influences in other musical veins such as John Fahey, Nick Drake, John Vandiver, and Tom Waits. Whether it be his original pieces, or his renditions of old American classics O’Reilly tells his story through an old and soulful voice, propelled by a sense of authentic emotional adrenaline.

When performing with his trio, The Old Soul Orchestra, O'Reilly is backed by Jeff Kissell on the Double Bass and Chris Lynch on the fiddle. Their versatile musicianship, and soulful chemistry help to expand O'Reilly's songs into pieces that drive like a ten pound hammer, or float like feather and

Hallmarks of the Carolyn Sills Combo sound are tightness, feistiness and beat driven (in greater part) retro originals. It’s also fun! There are bits of 50s Rockabilly, Dance Hall Honkytonk, Western Swing and more. There’s tasty steel, some Duane Eddy-style big twang guitar and fuzz guitar as well. There are songs that Patsy Cline might have done if she’d had her way .
