Orba Squara Biography (Wikipedia)
Orba Squara is the stage name of New York-based singer/songwriter Mitch Davis. His song "Perfect Timing (This Morning)" was featured in television commercials for Apple's iPhone. Another song of his, "Brand New Day", appeared on the movie Wedding Daze.
He has recorded two full-length albums, Sunshyness and The Trouble With Flying. Davis uses many "organic" instruments on the album. These include mandolin, glockenspiel, accordion, sitar, violin, harmonica, toy pianos, xylophone and ukulele. Not only were all the songs written by Davis, but he performed everything on the recordings himself.
Davis instigated interest in his music by giving copies of his album to friends, who in turn passed it along. It reached Universal Music Publishing through word of mouth.
Orba Squara has been called "the new Moby" in the press because 9 songs from the 10 song debut album "Sunshyness" have been licensed for film and television projects. This fact makes Orba Squara's "Sunshyness" the most licensed album since Moby's 1999 release, "Play."
