The Mighty Orq For twelve years The Mighty Orq has been performing solo and with his band across the US and Europe. He has won three HoustonPress Music Awards (Best Guitarist- 2007, Best Guitarist- 2010, Best Blues 2012), two regional International Blues Challenges(2011 & 2012), and released six albums.The new album, released in the summer of this year and entitled Soulful City, is a departure from the southern rock-leaning To TheBone and Lost In Germany. This collection of new songs is a celebration of Orqs native Houston and of that citys rich musicalheritage.It showcases Orqs acoustic and resonator guitar acumen, his fluency with different musical styles (blues, americana, pop,instrumental acoustic), and various instruments (resonator, acoustic, & electric guitar, pedal & lap steel, bass, & percussion) as well ashighlights the continued development of his nuanced and arresting voice.Additionally, Soulful City reached position # 20 on the Living Blues Radio Chart, and position#19 on the Blues Debut Radio Chart for the months of June and July 2013 respectively. The CD was made possible by a grant from the Houston Arts Alliance, and is available for purchase here.Visit The Mighty Orqs Website
