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

Hooks and new album approach

 I am working on the Grieving Tree versions of Jade Monkey songs EP. That will kind of represent an end to the old batch of Grieving Tree songs. Swan Song represents the beginning of the new era of the Grieving Tree (even though I thought it might be the last Grieving Tree song, hence the title). After Swan song I recorded Hooks another new song and moving forward I will record one song at a time as they are written eventually adding up to an album which will be compiled when there are enough songs. Maybe that's how albums are made in an iTunes world. I don't know but that's the plan for this band. I'm hoping to finish The Monkey Skeletons EP by spring sometime.

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