Album Notes
After a decade of putting out albums and touring, Nebraskan singer-songwriter Orion Walsh has released his third full length album "The Tale of a Broken Compass". Consisting of ten new songs full of highly personal storytelling, the album leads the listener down long dark roads of alcoholism, breakup, and fear only to end up traveling upon smooth paths full of light, grace, and acceptance. Truly a mature step forward for this well traveled singer-songwriter.

Walsh has released two other full length albums in the past, "The Hitchhiker's Son" (produced by AJ Mogis) and "Tornado Lullabies" (produced by Aaron Edwards) as well as two EPs, "First By Water Then By Fire" & "Freedom Lost Freedom Found" prior to his newest effort via The Hunter Records. He has also released a full length album with his previous band Slow Coming Day (Tooth and Nail Records) which had major label distribution back in 2003. His accomplishments include releasing several songs for multiple compilations as well. Walsh has been touring for a decade and has performed shows all over the United States and Europe. Several of his songs have been used on television and independent films in the past, the most noteworthy being on "Americas Next Top Model" of international fame. Expect to see more from this seasoned troubadour in the years to come.
