Outer Orbit

A band to fall in love with – Keenan Dodge, Ragtag Magazine

Outer Orbit is a funk-soul collective jammed with some of Portland, Oregon’s top talent. Led by Galen Clark of the jazztastic Trio Subtonic and fronted by vocalist Sarah Clarke of Winthrop veteran Dirty Revival, the band features an intimidating lineup of musical heavyweights. The band includes Tyrone Hendrix, an alumnus of Prince, Damian Erskine of the legendary Skerik Band, Peter Knudsen of fusion juggernaut Ghost-Note, and Mike Elson of Swatkins, a collaborator with Allen Stone. 

Outer Orbit brings original burning soul and pocket heavy funk while drawing on a range of influences from Sly Stone and The Meters to Aretha Franklin and Emily King. Sarah Clarke’s searing vocals and the jaw-dropping musicianship of the keys and guitar combine with one of the best rhythm sections you’ll ever see to build an unforgettable groove.
