From Edmonton, Alberta.
Kasha Anne and Mitch Smith, the singer/songwriter duo better known as The Orchard, have been making music together since 2012. Their debut album, Southern Ground, was released in 2012 with all five singles charting in the top 100 of the Trax Country Radio Charts. The Orchard’s second album, Georgia, was released in 2014.
At the 2014 Association of Country Music in Alberta (ACMA) Awards, The Orchard received five nominations for “Group or Duo of the Year”, “Fans Choice”, “Album of the Year”, “Rising Star” and two songs nominated for “Song of the Year”.
Their latest album, The Great Unknown is a cosmic blend of rock, country and pop.
“Rolling out of the Canadian Rockies and across the prairie Province of Alberta, The Orchard finds its sound in Canadiana. Great tunes, great guitars and great Vocals. This is a real deal, no B.S. band playing real music.”
– Jim Scott (multi grammy award winning producer/mixer)
