Welcome to Marvelous Orchards. We make music here. I'm Marty J...

This site features the music of the bands I've been involved with over the years.

First and foremost:

The Jade Monkey which was my main band for fourteen years. 

The Suicide Tourists: My current and future rock band

Fashionably Great: a tongue in cheek glam/pop/hip hop band

The Grieving Tree: an acoustic singer/songwriter project

Marty J: instrumentals

 

Enjoy,

Marty J

Last Grieving Tree for a long time...

The Grieving Tree releases Swan Song. This will be it for a while.

Explorers!

 Fashionably Great returns with Explorers! It may be the most inappropriate song yet!

2016-2017 Goals

All tracks have been recorded for a Fashionably Great song, I hope to finish mixing it before the year is out. With that, I will be putting Fashionably Great on hiatus. The Grieving Tree is also on indefinite hiatus. The Jade Monkey is done. So that leaves The Suicide Tourists as my main focus. I have one instrumental song I'd like to get done soon but not sure of the timing on that. Anyway, early 2017 will commence work on an EP from The Suicide Tourists and then after that we will begin work on one of two albums that are waiting for vocals. 

 

Suicide Tourists Rising!

Working hard on new music

 So here's what's going on. Hopefully soon going to the studio with Luis and Travis to work on a new Fashionably Great song. There's a drummer recording drums to a new Suicide Tourists song. I'm working hard at home on a solo song called Camila's Blue Eyes.

Thanks for tuning in!
