Orion and the Melted Crayons

Music For Hope, Charlottesville VA

The Melted Crayons' music centers around our interactions with the world we live in and how we express ourselves. With a penchant for finding joy in the moment, TMC contrasts soaring highs and everyday peace with poignant pain atop a bed of sweet chords and interlocking rhythm. The project was founded in 2018 as a vessel for Songwriter/producer Orion Faruque to develop his songs into fully realized studio productions with talented artists from near and far.


The debut album, The Good Stuff, was produced in 2020 and contains a whole year of songwriting during the Covid-19 pandemic. The third single, The Letter, was released August 20th 2021 to digital streaming platforms and is Orion's message to the world about his father's passing.
