this is just the beginning for a predominately one-man creative machine - Zaptown Magazine


[Orr] turns a phrase with the sophistication of veteran songwriters - Metromix Indy

"When Elephants... write-up"

[When Elephants...] is by far his most accomplished work to date. Even when he is whipping out his best...on the finale “Alexandra, Annamarie, And Everything I Ever Wanted To Be” amongst a smattering of electronic sampling, his acoustic dappling never sounded more fresh. By the time the bass guitar comes into play, you are knee deep into something marvelous. You only hate the fact that the album is ending. - Zaptown Magazine

"Barfly comic (2007)"

He's a real talent. His songs have a dreamlike quality that seems alien and yet familiar. Little tales of small truths that are filled with moments stolen from your past. - Nuvo Magazine

"Seconds CD review"

the solid tracks on this album demonstrate enough musical and lyrical sophistication to make me think that it's only a matter of time and dedication before Orr starts attracting serious attention - INtake Magazine

"Seconds CD review"

Three of its tracks have broad-appeal that should please all kinds of music fans. "Born to Runner-Up" uses a sports metaphor to tell a musical tale of the eternal nice-guy loser. It's a lot of fun, and goodness knows there are thousands of us nice guys out there who can relate. It may be about losing, but the song itself is a winner, as is "You Don’t Know the Half." Songs don't get much more clever than this story of a man with a split personality that murders his lover. Strangely upbeat, Orr even changes vocals for the man's two personalities. Dark, yes, but the song is a pun intended. And finally, another dark-yet-lively song, "Last Call," is the biggest highlight on the entire album. It's a rollicking good time of a number about a man who drinks himself to death after losing his love, and has bar room "hit" written all over it. Thank goodness, as I think most of us have had enough of "Friends in Low Places." -


Still working on that hot first release.



Singer/multi-instrumentalist John Orr has performed under the name The Last Domino since 2005. What began as simple acoustic singer/songwriter fare with his first EP has blossomed into a unique style through subsequent releases that spans a myriad genres from rock to folk to electronic to Parisian waltz. Domino shows are innovative one-man-army performances, layering organic loops and beats with various instruments like the saxophone and melodica.
