OSHIMA BROTHERS’ MAGNETIC SIBLING SOUND AND CONTAGIOUS JOY RESULT FROM A LIFETIME OF MAKING MUSIC TOGETHER.
Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, the brothers have honed a harmony-rich blend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. On stage, Sean and Jamie create a surprisingly full sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion. Their debut album, "Oshima Brothers," released in 2016, is a collection of 11 original songs written by Sean, and arranged and recorded by Jamie. The brothers live in Maine but are often on the road performing, producing music videos, and dancing.
“Sean and Jamie are two of the most inspirational people I've met. They perform a roots-based pop sound that is infectious and fun, and even though a little wistful, this song gets in your head and won't let go.” -- Chris Wienk, WEXT
“’Online’ comes into play with sauntering swagger, the Oshima Brothers taking more blues-centric melodies into their fold… Musically, the song dances somewhere between influences ranging from John Mayer to This Wild Life, with alternative folk production melding with more of a contemporary rhythmic strut.” -- Popmatters
“The Oshima Brothers are a treat! It is gratifying to know that acoustic music has a new generation of devotees and is safely planted in the next generation.” -- Ken Gross, Camden Concert Series
"Their engaging sibling harmonies, thought-provoking lyrics and hook-laden melodies grabs your attention from the very first track straight through to the last." --- Lucky Clark
The older brother, Sean is the band’s songwriter, publicist, business manager, stylist, and chef. He sings and plays rhythm guitar, harmonica, and cajón. At a show, you’re sure to hear his warm vocals and soaring falsetto.
Consumed by music, Jamie is the band’s producer, recording/audio engineer, and filmmaker. In addition to singing, he plays electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, banjo, and fiddle. He has been recording songs and making videos in his home studio, Tiny Room Studio, since he was twelve.
