San Francisco, CA

The San Francisco based band known as Heart of Orion, originated out of a melting pot of
musical influences, emotions, love and collaborations. The band is comprised of singer &
songwriter Danielle Kerley and arranger & keyboardist Ty Oz (Tayfun Ozisik). Heart of Orion,
which seeks to create enchanting & magical music, describes their sound as an, eclectic blend of
Electronica, New Wave and Alternative music. Kerley and Oz express that their music represents
their values, ideals, frustrations, fear and their love for each other that evolved into a bond that
launched out of creative thoughts that they both share. Heart of Orion has created a unique style
of music all their own, but note that some of their diverse influences along the way as Bob Marley, YES, Deep Purple, David Bowie. Heart of Orion’s music contains social and political messages while also bringing beats that will keep their listeners
dancing all night. The debut album titled “How Far?” includes songs “Liberation Revolution”,
“Flashback”, the island sound of “Get In to the Dance”, and the emotionally deep track titled,
“Fear and Love.”

For singer & songwriter Kerley, her artistic adventure began as both an actor in high school &
lover of musical theatre after having seen the play “Les Miserables” numerous times. After high
school she continued to pursue acting and explored other cross genre arts while traveling through
different areas across California to Seattle and overseas to Scotland. It was during that time that
Kerley created a dance platform for children and adults in addition to writing a play titled,
“Blissfully Ignorant” while living in Edinburgh, Scotland. It would be 2006, when the song
“Look at our Society” composed itself in Kerley’s head while sitting on a bench facing St. Giles
Cathedral and the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Scotland. Kerley found it odd as all five
verses to the song magically formed together in her head without a second thought which caused
her curiosity on what that meant. Kerley would learn from a good friend & Australian singer that
her experience was the evolution of becoming a songwriter. Kerley’s vocals along with the
unique music that Ty Oz composes, creates the perfect mixture that defines Heart of Orion.
