The Orchid Highway is a Canadian rock band who toured for two years in London, UK in the late 1990as., where they recorded their first EP Fourplay. The band later relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia.


The Orchid Highway worked with producer Steven Drake (Odds) to record and release their first full-length album, The Orchid Highway. Positive reviews and brisk online sales brought them to the attention of Brooklyn NY label Rainbow Quartz, who signed the band in 2008 and re-released The Orchid Highway internationally.

Singles “Next World” and “Sofa Surfer Girl” received airplay throughout Canada and the US, notably in Hawaii (one of 2008’s most played albums at Maui’s KEAO), and in L.A. on Rodney Bingenheimer’s KROQ show. “Next World” was featured in Haylie Duff slasher film Fear Island, and the video for “Sofa Surfer Girl” was played on Canada’s MuchMusic

The core of the band are the three Winnipeg-born Macdonald brothers Rory (bass), Jamie (guitar) and Derek (keyboards); in Vancouver they added drummer Adrian Buckley and guitarist Scott Perry, who had toured with mutual friend Todd Fancey (of the New Pornographers). They are currently working on a follow-up album, collaborating with producer Howard Redekopp.
