About The Owls & The Orcas

The Owls And The Orcas are a young band with talent that matches their ambition. The band was started two years ago by three high school friends from the Antwerp Kunsthumaniora. They continue their education at the Conservatory and Rock Academy of Tilburg and Ghent.Music takes center stage at The Owls And The Orcas. Their sound is as distinctive as the band members themselves. Bas Mertens, whose drumming was shaped by funk and soul, lays the foundation of the band. He propels the storyline of the songs forward. Lode Fraussen, a purebred guitarist with an ear for perfection, draws inspiration from classic rock greats and adds a ruggedness to the sound. Lead singer, bassist and guitarist Wannes van Mol is a jazz guitarist who uses his vocal range and timbre to tell stories with emotion and tension.This creative clash of styles and influences results in catchy, melodious, and narrative songs.
