Dear Orphans’ music embraces the simplicity of life while connecting with the bare the bones of the human condition. The band comprises singer-songwriters Nick Payne and Lyn Dearling-Taylor, along with Mike Kirkley on pedal steel, “a big influence on our sound” according to Nick. Dear Orphans are also sometimes accompanied by clawhammer banjoist, Richard Galluzzi. “Our music persists in a way that other music doesn’t. It has the ability to stick with you for a long time. We are influenced by traditional bluegrass,” says Nick. The band is available for the world on Blue Pie Records.
