The Ormewoods Newsroom - Profile and News Archive
Atlanta, GA based Americana duo The Ormewoods are Don McCollister and Claire Pearson. Vocalists, multi-instrumentalists and seasoned performers, The Ormewoods share a passion for live performances and embrace audiences of all ages and fans of all music genres.
McCollister is a two-time Grammy®-award winning engineer/producer and Pearson is a longtime singer/songwriter and indie radio hit. When reunited, they quickly built a fan base as they toured to promote their debut album, “The Bedroom Sessions.” The album continues to receive strong Americana radio support across the country thanks to their number one single, “HeyBabe,” a song about their relationship and how they circled back to each other.
Don and Claire bring dynamic individual musical histories to their remarkable partnership. Don’s 25 year career includes work with Sister Hazel, Shawn Mullins and Third Day. He also produced tracks for Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush before they formed the superstar duo Sugarland. Artists that Don McCollister has worked with have collectively sold over 15 million albums, been nominated for 85 major music awards, of which they have won 47, had 34 #1 billboard hits and charted singles. Often dubbed "the artist's" producer because he himself is a multi-instrumentalist who continues to perform live.
Claire Pearson (previously performed as Pearson Perry but dropped the Perry moniker after divorce) is an Atlanta based singer-songwriter whose song "Love is a Mountain" (co-written with Heidi Higgins) charted #37 on on the top 100 list of most played singles on independent radio in 2014. She was also one of the top 5 most played pop artists on independent radio in 2014 according to Roots Music Report. She founded Atlanta Intown Songwriters in 2011 to build the Atlanta artist network for aspiring songwriters.
