Orphan Colours was born out of the ashes of folk outfits Ahab and Noah & The Whale, bringing together the band’s collective influences of Rock, Americana and folk. They began with their
debut EP High Hopes with singles ‘Won’t Let You Down’ and ‘High Hopes’, 


Their debut album ‘All On Red’ was nominated for the 2019 Americana UK Awards ‘Album of the Year’.

After touring extensively in the UK, and some shows in Denmark the band took a break until 2023 when Steven and Fred went back into the studio to put together the various recordings and
demos for their second album "King of Alchemy". The title taken from the album track of the same name which illustrates the central theme of the album - transformation of character.


The first single from the album ‘Blame It On The Weather’ is out now, with the full album coming on 7th June 2024.


The dynamic four piece band swing from rocking Tom Petty and Ryan Adams alt-country influences to the brooding soundscapes of the likes of Bon Iver and Beck. Ahab’s sound has not entirely disappeared, their bluegrass tinged country can be heard on songs like ‘Jenny’ and ‘Doing Alright’, with many of the songs featuring west coast esque 3 part harmonies
