TC Ortberg

Guitarist- Composer


2014's "Half Finished Novel" is a Steely Dan-like record, infused with a 70's feel on a mix of acoustic and electric band lineups, plus lush vocal arrangements throughout. Unique arrangements of well known covers such as Bill Wither's Use Me, Joe Jackson's Steppin Out, and Steely Dan's Do It Again.
