orange gold red is a collaboration between long lost cousins Andrew Gregory and Kate Copeland. The songs represent a deviation for Andrew, who has been playing around New York City with his band Tubetops since 2010. His first solo undertaking, orange gold red showcases his background in electronic music, including synthesizer programming and Max/MSP.
The songs - written, composed, and mixed by Andrew - draw inspiration from his personal experiences, vulnerable thoughts and ruminations. Production features a growing collection of vintage synthesizers, field recordings, dusty drum machines, coffee cans and jars, and a beat-up Fender Stratocaster.
Kate, who is currently working on her debut album, grew up singing backup vocals for her father's folk band and later studied music composition at conservatory. She and Andrew first met in April 2013, and went to the studio to collaborate. Andrew is now in the process of composing an orange gold red full-length.
