Long Beach, CA natives, 4th & Orange are emerging in the scene with a unique blend of hip-hop, pop, rock, and cool reggae. The band was co-founded by longtime friends Garrett Douglas and Chris “DJ Irey” Garcia, and also includes Ricardo Santiago, Alex Bursztyn, and Sam Ward. Garrett and Garcia named the project 4th & Orange to represent the intersection in Long Beach that they feel closely tied too. Their debut single, ‘Girl Next Door’ took summer 2019 by storm, and they were greeted by an immense amount of positive feedback, including more that 2.5 million individual views on YouTube.
“We’re a perfect example of what happens when you grow up in such a diverse place like Long Beach”. “Opposite sounds start to blend, stories range through so many relatable lessons, and differences are almost pushed aside completely so we can figure out how to come together and form a band that will reach almost every type of listener.”Garret Douglas – Lead Vocals
