The Rocker in Ora’s Life

According to reports, the rumored man in Ora’s life is singer and guitarist, Andrew Watt. Watt is an American guitarist, and singer-songwriter. He was the founding member and former guitarist of the rock band, California Breed. He was seen vacationing with Ora and getting close with her in Rome. The pair were photographed showing some cute PDA as they spent some quality time together.

Short Lived Super Group

Watt founded California Breed in 2013, along with Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, and Jason Bonham of Foreigner and Led Zeppelin. The band recorded its self-titled debut album in late 2013, and released it in May 2014. The album was a moderate success and reached number 78 on the US Billboard 200. Unfortunately, drummer Bonham could not tour with the band because of other commitments, and the band had difficulty continuing without him. Finally, in January 2015, the band announced that it would no longer continue.
