  • High Orbit Saves The pandas

    Planet Earth is in dire peril and there’s only one brave crew that can save it. Of course, they’re also in peril, so Matthew Ebel and his crew will have to do it instead. There’s time-travel, endangered species, plot holes, comedy, and plenty of piano rock in this sci-fi musical adventure.

  • The Lives of Dexter Peterson

    The Lives of Dexter Peterson is a two-part project from Matthew Ebel. Based on a novella written by Ebel, the album and story are about a boy from New York City who finds himself inexplicably jumping from one life to the next, as though someone were changing the channels of his life and he’s the star of every single show. He can’t explain why nor can he see a pattern, all he knows is that a girl named Alexandria seems to follow him from one life to the next.

  • Goodbye Planet Earth

    Not just a mere collection of singles, Matthew’s fourth solo album is a journey that takes the listener on an outer-space adventure. The album combines highly electronic elements like synthesizers and loops with raw vocals, pianos, pennywhistles, and more.

  • Songs from the Vault, vol. 3

  • The High Orbit Holiday Special

    Captain Ebel takes on an (alleged) evil intergalactic carnivore overlord in this outer-space adventure set in Christmas future. Very, VERY future. In fact, so future that people can’t even remember a time when people bought gifts!
