Live Video: Kris Orlowski

photo by Morgen Schuler (view set)

Seattle songwriter Kris Orlowski has the honesty, voice, and soul needed in a great pop folk songwriter. Since the mid-2000s, Orlowski has been on the Seattle circuit building a reputation for the highest quality songwriting with an equally talented band that seems to understand every turn and mood of the songs as well as the songwriter himself. One of the most impressive things about the performances live for KEXP in the videos below is that some of these songs, from his 2012 EP Pieces We Are, featured a seventeen-piece orchestra on record — but the stripped-down lineup (ahem, see the picture above), only makes it clearer that the majesty and emotive power of Pieces We Are and the other releases were due more to the power of Orlowski’s songwriting than the instrumentation (though it is quite beautiful).
