About The Orange Constant
The Orange Constant formed in 2012 in Statesboro, Ga. and quickly made a name for itself across the American southeast. Now residing in Athens, Ga., the group continues to grow a loyal fan-base that craves its eclectic and vintage rock sound. TOC’s debut album, Time to Go (June 2015), was recorded with Grammy nominated producer John Keane (REM, Widespread Panic) and garnered national attention from Relix Magazine which praised a ”confident and polished debut album…laden with connective riffs and melodious charm.” The band shares bills with nationally and internationally touring acts including Perpetual Groove, TAUK, CBDB, and Ripe and won the 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Award for best ”Jam/ Funk” band. Its second LP, Point of Reference (March 2017), was produced by Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Futurebirds) and demonstrates an urge to break genre restrictions and capture a sound to call its own. The Orange Constant draws influence from many different styles and fans are often drawn to their ability to meld progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. The band is: Andrew Brantley (guitar, vocals), Nickalous Benson (guitar, vocals), Tyler Walker (bass, vocals), Chris Freiberg (keyboards), Sam Groveman (drums).
”The Orange Constant’s confident and polished debut album Time to Go is laden with connective riffs and melodious charm. Much of the album evokes a 70’s FM AOR vibe, without appearing self conscious”
– Larson Sutton, Relix Magazine
”The Orange Constant has pushed its way into a very competitive southeast music scene, where they’ve been able to stand out as completely unique to their peers. It’s that seamless blend of jam-rock and pop sensibilities that continues to serve the ensemble — a melodic force that will only get stronger in the coming years.”
– Garret K. Woodward, Smoky Mountain News

“Eclectic rock n’ roll, everything from blissful southern rock and indie jams to urban funk.” – Grant Purvis, Home Grown Music Network
