Singer David Eselgroth and guitarist Jared Snavely formed the Orphan, The Poet in 2008 in Dayton, Ohio. When the band travelled to Detroit for a gig the following year, they took a wrong turn, illegally entering Canada that led to them getting detained by border patrol, and making it back to the show just in time to meet two audience members who would become future bandmates. Eselgroth labels their sound as "progressive indie pop rock. We like to write complex parts at times, but also love rocking out, too!”
