Ora Cogan combines the intricate guitar picking of Americana with Psychedelic dreamscapes, drawing comparisons to 70’s folk legend Karen Dalton. She has shared the stage with the likes of Grouper & Hope Sandoval while touring extensively in North America, Europe and the UK.
Cogan’s new offering Crickets comes out November 2017. Co-produced with Tom Deis (Uni Ika Ai) in Philadelphia, Crickets inhabits a place between psychedelic folk, dark wave ambient and experimental dream pop. The album features percussionist Dani Markham (TuneYards, Childish Gambino), violinist Russel Kotcher (Chamber Orchestra of NY), and background vocalist Maia Friedman (Uni Ika Ai).
Cogan became a part of Vancouver’s eclectic music scene as a teen. She has collaborated with a multitude of artists including Frazey Ford, Indigenous performance artist Skeena Reece and Austrian Electro-Acoustic artist Daniel Lercher and has performed at Internationally acclaimed festivals such as Treefort, Sled Island, Serralves Festival in Portugal and Torstraßen Festival in Berlin.
“Multi-instrumentalist Ora Cogan makes gorgeous experimental folk compositions laced with hints of psychedelia, chamber pop, and rock.” – She Shreds
“Last month Cogan debuted “The Light,” the first single from her forthcoming release Crickets. It’s notably more up-tempo than her previous work, with heavy synth and multi-layered percussion weaving complex melodies like a spider tending to its web.” – Portland Mercury
