Orlando Napier is a soul singer-songwriter and jazz/blues pianist from Los Angeles. His music ranges from soul-infused pop and rock & roll to country & western and even some hip hop. Napier cut his teeth as a performer playing venues in and around Santa Barbara, California, where he still retains a large and loyal fan base. He began his musical journey later than most at the age of 20 but his raw natural abilities prompted the encouragement of his peers and Napier soon decided that music was his calling. He is always writing and recording new music and has no interest in doing much else. Orlando was crowned the best blues voice on California's central coast in 2009 , after which he was invited to Memphis to perform at the International Blues Competition in which he excelled and was among the finalists. At 24-years-old, he was the youngest blues player in the competition. These days you'll mostly find Orlando playing venues up an down Southern California's coast with his R&B band. His father, Hugo Napier(tenor sax), joins the quartet and has never missed a gig. "Orlando is one of those rare, hard-working showmen with a great natural ability and a quickly increasing notoriety. You'll need only hear a few bars of his music and a few impassioned phrases to know you're in for an inspiring night of music."
