Thanksgiving is the quiet folk alter ego of Adrian Orange, a musician from America's North West who has, since his teens, been part of a tight knit music community that includes Phil Elverum (The Microphones, Mount Eerie), Kyle Field (Little Wings) and Calvin Johnson.
Orange started young, playing his first show at the age of 11 and by the age of 15, he had toured Europe and dropped out of high school to pursue music full time. He co-founded the brilliant label Marriage Records with his Watery Graves band-mate Curtis Knapp in late 2002, producing the labels first release, a CD-R titled 'Nothing'. Since then he has released numerous albums and singles under the name Thanksgiving including the fantastic Phil Elverum produced long player 'Welcome Nowhere'.
2006 saw the first releases under the moniker Adrian Orange and he has since recorded and toured under various names including Adrian Orange & Her Band, Lyllyy's Adrian Orange, Drone Boner and more recently has recorded an experimental electronic hip-hop album under the moniker AOK.
