Orion the Hunter was a 1980s rock combo and offshoot of the popular band Boston. It featured former Boston members Barry Goudreau on guitars and Brad Delp on backing vocals, as well as future Boston lead vocalist Fran Cosmo.

The band was originally known as simply "Orion", but the name was changed to "Orion the Hunter" in deference to pressure from Orion Pictures.[1] The group's self-titled album in 1984 on Portrait/CBS Records, which yielded a hit single "So You Ran," featuring the sky-high vocals which prompted Cosmo's entrance to Boston in the early 1990s.

Orion the Hunter charted at #57 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart after its debut on May 9, 1984. "So You Ran" managed to make the Top Ten on rock radio and was a mid-chart hit on mainstream pop radio.

Orion the Hunter featured Bruce Smith on the bass and ex-Heart drummer Michael DeRosier. The album also included Brad Delp, former lead singer of Boston. Brad sang background vocals on numerous tracks. The influence of Goudreau's Boston sound is evident on the album. The band is commonly thought to be similar to Boston, Heart, the Scorpions, Journey, and Triumph.
