Orion and the Melted Crayons

Music For Hope, Charlottesville VA

Orion and the Melted Crayons is the recording name songwriter/producer Orion Faruque uses to develop his songs into studio productions with artists around the US. The 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, Orion's songwriting contrasts soaring highs and everyday peace with poignant pain atop a bed of sweet chords and interlocking rhythm. Live, the project ranges from tight arrangements to improvised jams with the material being brought to life by his favorite multi-instrumentalists.

The debut album, The Good Stuff, was produced in 2020 and contains a whole year of songwriting during the Covid-19 pandemic. Find it now on any digital streaming platform or contact us to order a physical copy!
