Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the work of Pacific Northwest musician Adrian Orange who since his teen years has been recording and performing within the Phil Elverum, Kyle Field, Calvin Johnson social circle. His voice, a delicate unsure weeping call, sings existential songs which, on later albums, emphasize percussion. Earlier works emphasized simple guitar and (sometimes goofy) songwriting.

Adrian co-founded Marriage Records, which presses albums and prints books by Thanksgiving, YACHT, Lucky Dragons, White Rainbow, Watery Graves, Privacy, Adrian Orange, A John Henry Memorial, and other Portland artists.

A native of Portland, OR, released his first record, "We Could Be Each Other’s Evidence" on Vit! Vit! Records, in 2002 at age 16. Recently, Adrian has been performing trance music under the name "A.O."
