Experimental pop musician KAI ORION hits the Schoolkids stage January 24, 2020. KAI ORION’s career began in 2014, when he won a cover contest held by indie-rock band The National for his cover of their song “I Need My Girl,” using household objects as instruments. Since then, he’s earned a reputation for blending experimental sounds with heartfelt songwriting, drawing comparisons to the likes of Peter Gabriel and Tom Waits. This culminated in May 2019, when Orion was one of 20 musicians selected to participate in a four-day recording session at Peter Gabriel’s own Real World Studios in Bath, England. His song “Raining In My Head” was subsequently released through the Real World label. Kai’s second album, “Start to End,” was released in April 2019, and features some of his most compelling work yet.
