Award winning guitarist/composer

Somewhere Else is my ninth album and is based on that feeling of that longing to be in another place that we all experience from time to time. I live in London, on the other side of the world from my family in Australia, and, while I enjoy living in London, I think about Australia every day. I am sure that many people must feel the same way about their family far away.

"Somewhere  Else is a thing of beauty"

"What a joy to be anywhere and listen to guitarist and composer Carl Orr’s latest album, Somewhere Else. My God, each of his albums is better than the last. Somewhere Else is a truly moving musical statement that just doesn’t run the gamut - it creates new ones. I can’t get over how brilliant this recording is… "
