***Straight from NBC’s “The Voice”***
Orlando Napier is a soul singer, songwriter and blues pianist born in Los Angeles. He began his musical journey later than most, at the age of 20, but his raw, natural ability prompted the encouragement of his peers and he soon decided that music was his calling.
He cut his teeth as a performer playing venues in and around Santa Barbara, California with his father’s R&B band, ‘The Cat’s & Dogs’. Orlando began as the pianist but as his songwriting evolved and his vocal talent became apparent, he started to take over frontman duties from his father and soon, the band became his own. The name was eventually changed to the ‘Orlando Napier Band’, and Hugo Napier maintained his place as Orlando’s ‘tenor sax man’.
Acclaimed TV producer, Mark Burnett recognized his talent and recruited him for season 2 of the music-reality show ‘The Voice’ in 2011. He was among the top 48 finalists and found himself on ‘Team Adam Levine’ where he worked one-on-one with the Maroon Five frontman. He also worked with fellow soul man, Robin Thicke while on the show.
When: Saturday, September 29, 2012 – 7:30pm & 9:30pm shows.
Where: The Velvet Note – 4075 Old Milton Parkway – Alpharetta, GA
