Orange Grove“Ready For It”

“Ready For It” Background:
Orange Grove has been somewhat quiet when it comes to releasing new material since their last album release “Fingerprint” in 2009. The group has seen its ups & downs with lead singer Michael Maidwell being the only member remaining from the band which had written and recorded Fingerprint.

After re-establishing the groups’ line up, they’re back to writing & recording. “We set out on recording the first two songs of the album to get a taste of what Orange Grove could do. “Ready For It” is one of those two songs …and we decided to go ahead and release it now,” says singer Michael Maidwell. “We are working on the rest of the album now and plan on having it finished before the Summer but we will wait until the end of the year to release it…’Ready For It’ is the beginning!

Out of Europe, Orange Grove is known to play their blend of Reggae, Pop, Rock & Caribbean blend of musical art. Frontman Michael Maidwell and close friend Jacob Streefkerk formed the group back in 2000. They had both come to the Netherlands to study after graduating from high school, leaving their Caribbean homes on St Maarten behind.

After a few years, before you know it Orange Grove was born. Jacob had been playing guitar for a couple years and was getting quite good at it, and Michael had just discovered he could sing, so it made perfect sense: they’d put their talents and brains together and before you know it they’d be playing in front of thousands of people! Maybe even trillions!
