The Orchard

A cosmic blend of rock, country and pop, The Orchard is led by Kasha Anne and Mitchell Smith. They defy expectations and do what comes naturally… and it sounds like home.

“Rolling out of the Canadian Rockies and across the prairie Province of Alberta, The Orchard finds its sound in Canadiana. Great tunes, great guitars and great Vocals. This is a real deal, no B.S. band playing real music.”
– Jim Scott (multi grammy award-winning producer)
