Orbit Monkey is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Jörg Kohring. After playing guitar for bands like Lifehouse and Blend, it was time to step up to the microphone. Songs were already written and waiting to be recorded, so the debut album "Are We Alive" came together quickly. After playing the first couple of shows and meeting some of Hollywood's taste-makers, songs like "Let There Be Love" or "Used" made their way into TV shows such as Y&R or Hollywood Heights.
Recently, the band finished their new EP "Born To Be Kings", loaded with romantic ballads and the two rockers "On Fire" and "Summer In The City". The latter stirred up the community with it's infections summer vibe and the song has been picked up by numerous radio stations in the US and overseas.
Creative juices in action...I hear melodies coming in left and right...will I ever sleep tonight?
Last month, in the MediaZone, we featured Orbit Monkey, a new band created by Jorg Kohring. Their debut album, entitled Are We Alive, is now available and is excellent. I want to share this information as I have been listening to the CD and just can't stop. The collection of songs is great and deals with relationships and love. The vocals and lyrics are fresh and sensitive and the music is super! If you are looking for gifts or for a new CD for yourself, I recommend this one.
