About

Hello, my name is Frank Cable. My music is uploaded under the moniker of "Orionstar", in tribute to my children, Orion and Sophia (la Stella mia).
I live in the Berkshire region of western Massachusetts, home to many great folk musicians, among them James Taylor.

You may download my roughcut album "Tully Pond" from Bandcamp at

    Old song, made when I was 13 at 4.48
    on May 23, 2014 00:29

    @markjbennett: I took piano lessons for a few months at that time and learned the basic chords and scales. I was listening to Elton John, Steely Dan and Kiss at that time. This was about the time I picked up the guitar and I left the piano for my yamaha acoustic.

    @markjbennett: Thanks for much Mark. I've been very busy as of late and really hadn't the time to focus on music. Hopefully things will settle a bit and I can get back to finishing a few things here. I hope all is well in Scotland. Cheers!

    @Nemorospo: Thanks so much my friend. I was in this kind of space when I recorded this. Always nice to listen again and go back to a point of stillness, a point of peace. Namaste! :)

    @musicglenn: Thanks Glenn, I made this tune after getting my first real guitar, a Yamaha FG series acoustic from Service Merchandise. I wish I'd kept it, it would have been a good one to pass to my kids. I hope to see you soon at one of your events. :)
