Orlando Peña is a Singer/Songwriter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is also the writer and singer for The Midnight Purchase.
After spending a few years on a goat farm in rural Illinois honing his craft, Peña returned to Milwaukee with more focus and hard earned experience.
Peña makes use of his commanding vocal ability to deliver honest, often introspective lyrics about foolishness, loss, love, and the constant search for a purpose. His stories are fully realized with the help of The Midnight Purchase, a group of some of Milwaukee's finest musicians. Together they bring an energetic and passionate live performance to every stage they touch. With so many talented folks coming together for one purpose it's no surprise that in 2021 alone they've already picked up a win for Shepherd Express's Best of Milwaukee for Folk Band and a nomination for "New Artist of the Year" by the WAMI Awards.
What ever may come, it's evident that this is just the beginning for Orlando Peña and The Midnight Purchase.
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.
