The nuances are many. The ingenuity is unparalleled. The execution is mind-blowing. The end result is genius. A secret world, indeed.

Start to end (2019 album)

Kai Orion’s second album, textured, nuanced, and heartfelt experimental rock

POts & Pans (2015 album)

Kai Orion's debut album is moody alt-pop made using found-sounds and household objects as instruments.



To say recording one of his songs live requires serious attention to details is an understatement... you can see the magic of bringing it all together in his videos.
