Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra are fresh off the release of their critically acclaimed album, Stereoscope, released on February 9th. Co-produced by Cian Riordan (Doyle Bramhall II, Foxygen, Nickel Creek) and the members of the Old Soul Orchestra, the album represents the maturation of artists shedding hero worship and embracing the creativity within. "Stereoscope marks an evolutionary leap in a journey of artistic identity, songwriting maturity, band friendship and fiery group synergy," Glide Magazine recently noted. "Here, Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra homed in on their signature cosmic roots aesthetic, brimming with cinematic songcraft, impressionistic lyrics, clever arrangements, telepathic ensemble interplay, and soulfully world-weary vocals."
Similarly, Cowboys & Indians lauded the album, writing, "The atmospheric tracks on Stereoscope weave together blues, swing, and rock with a hint of psychedelic and even Gypsy undertones, making for an interesting and captivating album from start to finish," while PopMatters praised, "Marty O'Reilly and his orchestra once again prove that old souls are capable of new tricks."
In their five-year existence, Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra have released one previous full-length album, Pray for Rain, one EP, Preach 'Em Now!, and have toured nationally and internationally, selling out venues along the West Coast and throughout the United Kingdom. Select career live performance highlights include Outsidelands Festival, Bottlerock, and the Maverick Festival, where despite being at the bottom of the bill, the group managed to sell more CDs than any other artist in the festival's history.
Additionally, Marty O'Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra have played shows with Shakey Graves, Deer Tick, Martin Sexton and Kaki King, and were featured on NPR's Weekend Edition. The band's most popular track, "Cold Canary Gaslight," has also surpassed one million Spotify streams.
