UK Music Collective Orphan No More Co Drops "Even Now"

Orphan No More Co

Even Now, the live project from UK-based music collective Orphan No More Co, released today, October 23, at all music outlets. Comprised of eleven songs offering hope for those feeling brokenhearted, weary, and lost, Even Now is certainly an album for our times. Three singles dropped early leading up to today's debut, and their live videos are now available: the title track "Even Now," as well as "I Belong" and "Roll My Stone."

Desiring the album to be a space for those who are brokenhearted, weary, and lost, Orphan No More Co also wants Even Now as a space for shouts of praise and gratitude. "This album is space for it all, the full human experience," explains Joshua Luke Smith, co-founder of Orphan No More.

Orphan No More Co is not only a music community but it is also their mandate, mission, and conviction. "We believe our world needs to know a hope that prevails and a belonging that isn't dependent on what we can or can't do," Smith shares. "We belong because we are loved, we have hope because we believe our stories will be redeemed. One of the last things Jesus said to His followers before He died was, 'I will not leave you as orphans.' He was speaking of a spiritual state, where we live as those who are loved, found, and connected with God and one another."

This is also true for the title song, "Even Now," a lament and an exaltation which was written the night when Esther, a young mother and a core member of the Orphan No More community, went to be with the Lord. Smith says, "As a community we're passionate about creating space for those in grief, for those at a loss and searching for help and hope. This is something we've lived. We lost Esther, our best friend, and one of the founders of Orphan No More in 2018 after a battle with breast cancer. We believe this is a song for this season, in all its calamity and confusion. May this song wrap you in resurrection hope, may you know, in the depths of your soul that your story isn't over."

More About Orphan No More:

Orphan No More Co is based in Bath, England, and started as a group of friends sharing redemptive art in a living room. Inspired by the sounds of indie folk music, this collective is made up of singers, songwriters, poets, and instrumentalists whose central passion is to celebrate hope. Their debut EP's Exhale Vol. 1 and 2 share the honest story of grief and loss but ultimately points the narrative back to the One who stands with us in the storm, outside graves, and in the middle of the desolate place. 

Even Now was recorded live in 2019 during a winter retreat spent at Royal Epping Forest in a 250-year-old English barn converted into a studio where the group spent their time writing, singing, recording, and sharing life together. The album was produced by Jack Kircher and the songs were written entirely by Orphan No More members.   

The group is also passionate about social justice, particularly in the area of racial equality, and are actively seeking to live as anti-racist people. They founded the Check Your Blind Spot project to help others. Find out more by visiting
