Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, United States (1999 – 2009)

There are at least two acts using the “Orson” name:

1. Orson were a BRIT Award-winning American rock band from Hollywood who formed in 1999. Their self-financed debut album Bright Idea, released by Mercury Records in 2006, was produced in Los Angeles by Noah Shain and went on to find chart success in the UK with their first single, No Tomorrow, and album reaching the number 1 slot in their respective categories. The band finally gained recognition in their home country during the Concert for Diana in July 2007.

The band consisted of:
* Jason Pebworth - vocals
* George Astasio - guitar
* Kevin Roentgen - guitar and vocals
* Johnny Lonely - bass
* Chris Cano - drums

Orson have been inactive since 2008, and with the members having disappeared off the musical radar, with the exception of Roentgen, who is currently pursuing a solo career with his project, Praying Hands, the group are considered to have disbanded between 2008 and 2009.

    The second album was appaling, but the first album was genuinely one of the best albums I've ever bought. I wish they'd get back together and replicate the first album sound :)

    The first band that I really fell in love with and also the first live show that I ever attended, way back in 2007. Their music always cheers me up. Miss these guys big time.

    Always was a big fan of these guys. It's a shame they just dissapeared. I wish I knew where they were.
