JULY 20 – LOCAL/LIVE INTERVIEWS EPISODE 28: ORLANDO PEÑA
During these strange times, WMSE aims to keep you connected to your local music community by getting up close and personal in conversation while taking a listen to new local projects, albums and songs.
Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter Orlando Peña’s style contains the beautiful imagery and storytelling qualities of traditional folk and country music, but with modern instrumentation and rhythms that come from his eclectic background. His group, The Midnight Purchase brings a refreshing and unique sound to Americana, a genre that often favors tradition. After recently spending a few years on a goat farm in rural Illinois honing his craft, Peña returned to Milwaukee with more focus and hard-earned experience. Orlando is getting set to release new music soon and plays Tosa Tonight coming up on Thursday, July 28th.
