MORE ABOUT ORANJULY
Oranjuly are an American rock band and the brainchild of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Brian E. King.
After releasing their self-titled debut album in Summer 2010, the band has enjoyed an enormous response of critical praise and numerous spots on many year-end “Best of 2010” lists and a nomination for “Song of the Year” by the Boston Phoenix (New England’s biggest alt-weekly).
While writing/recording their inspired second record, which King describes as “more honest and raw but somehow more catchy and quirky” the band is enjoying supporting bands such as Fountains of Wayne, Atomic Tom (Universal Records), and Mike Viola (“That Thing You Do” & “Get Him to the Greek.”
