New on The Show


”Writing On The Wall” -  “Another great UK Family band, I think they’re really good, nice album very professional indeed, they’ve written the music themselves -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Founded on May 2012
Abi Orfila-Vocals, backing vocals, piano
Louise Orfila- Vocals, backing vocals, piano, guitar,
Matt Orfila- Guitar, backing vocals, harmonica, banjo

ORFILA are an acoustic folk/pop trio consisting of siblings Abi, Louise and Matt Orfila from Folkestone in Kent. They are all accomplished musicians and songwriters in their own right.
They first performed together as a band in mid 2012 when they supported BBC Radio 2 playlist singer/songwriter Ben Montague. Originally intended to be a one off show their set of originals and covers was warmly received and even earned an encore. Later in the year they supported
UK rock band Dodgy, Canadian folk artist Andrew James O’Brien and Irish folk legend Sharon Shannon as well as performing at various charity events and open mic nights across Kent.
2013 saw the band support some major artists such as Beverly Craven and the legendary Albert Hammond. They headlined the Imperial Sounds re-launch show and earned positive reviews and played two Kent festivals in the summer; the Brightlights Festival in Maidstone and the Quiet Riot Festival in Ashford. They went on to play their first London gig; in aid of the Jimmy Mizen Foundation, a charity set up to help young people.

They have regularly appeared in local news papers and have been featured several times on BBC Radio Kent. ORFILA’s music ranges from popular covers written by groups such as Mumford and Sons, The Beatles, and Albert Hammond, to their own unique original compositions. They have their own distinctive sound with superb three part harmonies with a Folk/Country/Pop feel. They are regularly described as similar to The Corrs with a flavour of Fleetwood Mac.
They have all worked with some major artists including The Wanted, Alexandra Burke, Eliza Doolittle, Stacy Solomon, Chas Hodges (from Chas and Dave), Ben Montague, Alvin Stardust, Dodgy, Jon Allen, Sharon Shannon, Cover Drive, 911, Showaddywaddy, Beverley Craven, Liam Genockey (Steeleye Span), and Albert Hammond.
The band’s popularity is increasing and with a recently released debut album the group has a busy year planned for 2014. The highlight so far has been to perform on the main stage at one of Europe’s major summer events; The Gibraltar Music Festival, where they played alongside acts such as The Script, Rita Ora, Roger Hodgson (Supertramp), Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), John Newman, James Arthur, Maxi Priest, Scouting For Girls, Reef, Ella Eyre and Newton Faulkner.

“They’re Fantastic” - Beverley Craven (Musician, Singer Songwriter)
“Awesome, absolutely awesome” - Dave Cash, BBC Radio and former TV (Top of the Pops) Presenter

Doug Seegers

“There’ll Be No Teardrops Tonight”  - “Very classic sound, features Buddy Miller” -  Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

A 62 year old newbie artist made his debut on the Billboard Country Album chart at No.25 Country selling 1,900 copies of GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER (Rounder).
Seegers is a homeless street musician born in New York who lives in Nashville. Swedish music star Jill Johnson and Magnus Carlson discovered him (after a tip from a hot dog salesman) in a Nashville food pantry. The two subsequently recorded a duet that climbed to the top of the music charts in Sweden. They were very taken by his lyrics and flair for singing. So they decided to record the song GOING DOWN TO THE RIVER written by Doug Seegers in the Cash Cabin Studio.
Doug Seegers goes from street singer to global superstar ....Maybe you've passed him on a downtown sidewalk. Maybe thrown a couple bucks his way. Doug Seegers, 62, is a street singer. He's been in town for 17 years. He's been homeless and addicted. He's been singing on Second Avenue, outside The Old Spaghetti Factory, and on Charlotte Avenue, outside the Goodwill store....
