By Kara Hallissey | Jan 04, 2018

(Jan. 5, 2018) Selbyville resident Travis Orbin, 35, released his first full length album, Silly String II, on Dec. 29, which can be purchased on travisorbin.bandcamp.com for $8.

The 15 tracks range from less than a minute long to over six minutes and have a number of instruments featured including bass, acoustic guitar, saxophone, synthesizers, drums, percussion, violin, piano, sitar guitar, vibraphones, trumpet, trombone and theremin.

“I wrote all the music and hired talented and competent musicians to bring it to life,” Orbin said. “If you want to go on a zany adventure and are open to instrumental and multiple genres of music, you should give it a chance.”

Listeners will hear elements of progressives, jazz, funk, metal, electronica, acoustic, and world music including different cultures.

“The vast majority of music was composed in April and May of 2014,” Orbin said. “I wrote the last song in January of 2015 and inadvertently made an album just writing a bunch of songs. We started putting the full length instrumental album together in August.”

Mixing engineer Patrick Campbell, of Epilog Sound in Naples, Florida, was essential in helping to create the sound in addition to at least a dozen others who played instruments on the tracks, he said.

Later this month, Silly String II, will also be available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music and Spotify.

In addition, CDs can be purchased in the coming weeks for $10 plus shipping costs at travisorbin2.bigcartel.com.

Orbin also has four solo extended play records he previously released available, which can be purchased on travisorbin.bandcamp.com, or check out his popular YouTube channel for music videos.
