Orion was stranded at Orchard Hill Studios after playing the 2018 Saluda Art Festival and decided to make it count. He challenged himself to compose a new piece, record 4 songs and release an EP in 24 hours. 

After a Sunday morning spent writing Champagne, Orion called Ryan Blanton over to spend the afternoon tracking and a following night mixing. 24 long hours later, a collection of 2 of Orion's newest songs pair with 2 of his older favorites on the Breathe E.P. 

1. Champagne 
2. Breathe 
3. Burning Down 
4. Captain Obvious 

<The world is sparkling, sparkling like champagne.>
