Orphan Project was conceived in November of 2001 in Abingdon, MD, when vocalist Shane Lankford approached John Wenger with an idea to create a concept album on physical and spiritual adoption. Thus, the process began to create a soundscape that could handle the lyrical depth of trying to find an identity that Lankford, himself being an orphan, was searching for. With influences such as Kansas, Yes, Peter Gabriel, Dream Theater, and U2, they released their debut album on Trinity Records entitled ‘Orphan Found’ was completed in June of 2003, with production being handled by keyboardist Tony Correlli, and a live string ensemble arranged by Wenger. With the addition of several live musicians, they would also go on to play shows locally around their hometown. Between 2003 and 2005, the band was to go on hiatus, with Lankford lending his vocal talents to Trinity Records founder Rob Perez's band Visual Cliff, and himself and current Orphan Project bassist Bill Yost working on another project entitled ‘Fall of Echoes’. In 2008, Orphan Project would reform and return to the studio to create a 19 minute EP entitled ‘Orphan Project II’, which would be a 4 song EP featuring three brand new originals, as well as a Pink Floyd cover. In summer of 2009, Orphan Project released a new full length album, ‘Spooning Out The Sea’. Orphan Project's material incorporates elements that fans of hard rock, progressive rock, metal, and even adult contemporary can appreciate.

“...personally I think it's the most exciting album I have heard from a new US band

since Spock's Beard emerged. Since then, there have been a handful of other notables...but none has stood out like Orphan Project... Orphan Found is a stunning debut, and Lankford and Wenger are talents to watch out for.”

Nick Shilton of Classic Rock Magazine


“Shane Lankford, the lead vocalist and frontman of the band, puts his heart and

soul into the music. He sings with incredible passion. He is U2's Bono.

He is Soundgarden's Chris Cornell. He is the nucleus of a talented band.”


Joshua Turner of Progressive World
