Quick-fire questions: orion sun

We caught up with Philly multi-instrumentalist orion sun ahead of her debut album.

Some skills can be taught, others are so inherently intertwined with a person that they are part of their very being. In the case of east coast singer, songwriter and producer Tiffany Majette aka orion sun, her ability to paint calm, astral landscapes is truly natural and unique to her.

Blending dusty percussion, comforting strings and distant vocals she creates genuinely immersive sounds that are the perfect  accompaniment to a night escapism and staring at the stars.

Following the success of her recent singles ‘Ne Me Quitte Pas (Don’t Leave Me’ and ‘Coffee For Dinner’ she will be releasing her debut album ‘Hold Space For Me’. Ahead of that release we caught up to have a quick chat with the quickly-rising singer.
