Born in Detroit, Orka Veer (real name Michael) first became interested in music after falling in love with the Nintendo computer game ‘The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time’. Before long, he had taught himself to play piano and was experimenting with multi-track recording and improvisation. Following 2005’s debut ‘Sam’s Solutions’, Orka Veer released his second full-length album ‘Slow Light’ a collection of pieces he had been working on since the age of 15. Orka Veer continues to write music and is currently at work scoring a video book series called Dreamside.
