Born in Twin Peaks and raised in Chicago, David Orris is the gay, Buddhist son of co-founders of the Christian Coalition. He began performing as a church vocalist and playing Mozart at age four. Today, his work as a composer, lyricist, artist and producer necessarily intersects with his spiritual work and intentions, which are ultimately about beauty, joy and truth. As a BMG Chrysalis songwriter and indie recording artist, David’s songs have appeared in a variety of TV and film, including the hit shows “Felicity,” “Smallville,” MTV’s “Real World” and numerous others. He has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and songs from his last album “The Seraphim Circus” have even charted at #1 nationally on CMJ and major radio-reporting publications. David resides in Hollywood, CA where he is currently hard at work composing music and lyrics for several pop/rock musicals, most notably Invisible (with bookwriter David Hollingsworth) which recently had its premiere staged reading in Los Angeles.
