The Orchard’s Artists Earn 10 Grammy Awards, The Most In Our History

NYC was in tip-top shape last night as people all over the city walked the streets dressed to the nines in the spirit of “music’s biggest night,” which took place at the legendary Madison Square Garden. The Orchard also followed suit, raising glasses with our labels and artists in honor of our nominees and winners. When all was said and done, The Orchard’s artists took home 10 Grammy Awards, the most in our company’s history. We congratulate our nominees and winners, we are incredibly fortunate to work with you everyday.


Out Today by The Orchard: Waterparks, BPM & More

Well people, it’s officially Grammys weekend in NYC. Did you know that this year’s Grammy Awards were moved up to accommodate for the Winter Olympics?

Speaking of 2018 releases, the year’s first big records are beginning to emerge, especially here at The Orchard. Let’s take a look at what we have #OutToday.

If the name Waterparks rings a bell, you may remember them from their momentous Best Breakthrough Artist win at the 2017 AP Music Awards. The pop-punk band’s debut LP Entertainment drops today and this thing lives up to the hype. (more…)

Introducing, Thomas Tsang, QA Automation Engineer

Hi there, my name is Thomas Tsang and I hail from the Bay Area in California (no, I’m not a bandwagon Warriors fan). I moved to New York a little over two years ago.

My initial career goal was to become a software engineer on the development side, but I soon realized how much I enjoyed the efficiency of automation. Now my goal is to enable others to do less manual work by providing better build confidence through test automation. Therefore, I’ll be joining the Data squad as a QA Automation Engineer.
