About

Life is full of muses, the mountain peaks, the valleys, the layers in between, the sky above, the earth beneath our feet, and the oceans within. All of life makes for the material of expression and music is how I best translate my experience. My name is James Orr and I write songs and play music with two other very talented musicians, Ben Baldridge and Chris Vance in a quaint music project we call Arise Awake. I read a paraphrased story once of the encounter between Christ and Lazarus at the tomb where Jesus called out "Arise....Awake Lazarus, come forth" and from there I carried the idea of being called from darkness toward light into the music I worked with others create. Over the years we have written and musically crafted nearly 50 songs and are finally putting the effort in to compile the best of the best into a full-length album called "Oceans Within". We are reaching out for support to bring this project to full life so that we can share with others the music we are inspired to write. To show our gratitude, a copy of the album will be sent to everyone who contributes any amount. Thank you for helping put wings on this project. 

Have an incredibly blessed journey and GOD bless with all endeavors, 

James, Ben, and Chris

Risks and challenges

We would love the opportunity to give our music (uplifting, sincere, and introspective) the best chance of reaching a wide audience. The three of us plan on building a tour next year upon what we can accomplish with "Oceans Within" as most serious venues, festivals, and events require a presskit (pictures, bios, and an album to share the style). We are hoping that this can be the foundation of building something upon as we move into the future as a band.
