The Orchard Story
Orchard Studio was built in 1980 on the family Apple farm and for over twenty years ran as a state of the art analogue recording studio, working with a wide range of artists from Stompin' Tom Connors to Jane Siberry.
Orchard embraced the digital revolution with the changing technology and Digital Consoles and Computers replaced the older Analog Boards and Tape Machines.
In 2003 Orchard expanded into the world of video and started Live Streaming artists to the Internet.
Our '04 "Webcast Weekend Online Music Festival" was the first of it's kind - an around the clock 'Live Stream' from the studio, for 3 days, bringing independent Canadian talent to the World. OrchardTV was born!
In 2008 & 2009 we 'Live Streamed' 30 shows from Brampton's Rose Theatre with many amazing Canadian artists including Sass Jordan, Lighthouse, Hollerado and Rick Emmett to name a few. The average nightly viewership was in the thousands and positive reviews came in from all around the world.
OrchardTV then brought their skills to New York City to webcast the legendary Allman Brothers Band, for two consecutive years, for their infamous month long residencies at Manhattans Beacon Theatre, then again to Florida with such classic rock legends as Stephen Stills, the Wailers, Johnny Winter, and Members of the Grateful Dead.
Some of our more recent clients include Microsoft Canada (MSN.CA) (Florence & the Machine, Dragonette, Metric, Serena Ryder), The Gibson Showroom, Metalworks Recording Studio for Magna Carta Records, E-One Entertainment, Bell TIFF Lightbox, and the University of Guelph/Humber.
In 2016, after 36 years, we moved off the farm and up to the shores of Georgian Bay to build our new stuido "Big Bay Sound" and Mobile ""The Livestream Airstream".
