Orion Walsh / Press

“Nebraska's Orion Walsh is a fantastic musician in an old country tradition. There's a restlessness to his music and a power in his voice, a constant need to keep moving and changing the scenery, which leads to Walsh's status as a musical Zelig, keeping his audiences guessing."”

The Inlander

“A truly independent musician who doesn’t have to rely on the handouts of a donor to produce the music he wants to create. If you’re looking for a clean break from all the crappy generic music out there, please take a minute out of your day and give Orion Walsh a listen, you won’t regret it.”

“There must be something in the water in Nebraska that it keeps producing powerful folk singers. I think it is time that a new artist’s name becomes synonymous with the state...Orion Walsh”


“It makes sense that Walsh identifies himself with men like Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan. His twangy, folk-rock aesthetic sounds as though he could be the grandson of any of them.”

Lincoln Journal Star

“When the deep, heartfelt, expressive lyrics are combined with the perfectly suited instrumentation, the end result is a masterwork of new American folk music. The depth and expression that exude from all of "Tornado Lullabies" have quickly made the album one of my favorite recordings of 2008”

The Daily Nebraskan

“Tornado Lullabies juxtaposes peace on chaos, or perhaps it's the other way around. Either way, it's music that dances on the edge between madness and genius and laughs at both. An outstanding listen." ”
