Michigan-based Orpheum Bell describes their music as “country and eastern.” It’s easy to see why with down-home instrumentation and a jangly percussiveness channeled through the wide ranging musical backgrounds of the band members. Somehow it works.

Check out a few of the tracks from their 2007 album Pretty as You on
