Orlando Peña is a Milwaukee-based singer and songwriter for the award-winning, americana/soul folk band, The Midnight Purchase.
He makes use of a commanding vocal ability to recount tales from his years in the High Sierra mountains of Nevada, to the low, vast plains of rural Illinois and countless places in between.
Peña’s lyrics are honest, and more often than not, introspective, with themes that revolve around foolishness, loss, love, and the constant search for a purpose.
Orlando Peña’s sturdy songwriting gives The Midnight Purchase room to roam. The group’s four-song EP, National Sessions, reveals The Band-like sounds of young folks older than their years.
