Outer Orbit is a funk soul collective led by Galen Clark (Trio Subtonic) and fronted by vocalist Sarah Clarke (Dirty Revival). The band features an all star lineup of Tyrone Hendrix (Prince), Damian Erskine (Skerik Band), Mike Elson (Swatkins) and Trent Baarspul.
Outer Orbit brings original burning soul and pocket heavy funk while drawing on a range of influences from Sly Stone and The Meters to Aretha Franklin and Emily King.
