Situated in Wexford, twins Brandon and Ashley combine to create The Ocelots. They have crafted their songwriting and musical experience together to produce a forceful blend of rich harmonies and bare, raw acoustic folk. The Ocelots started originally through busking around Ireland, before playing their music throughout many stages all across Europe. The brothers are known for their ability to capture an audience, with mesmerizing melody and variety meeting their charm and wit on stage.
Following the release of their video with the Cardinal Sessions in Cologne, they were voted among the Top 5 Cardinal Sessions favourite bands of the year alongside Courtney Barnett, as well as being featured as one of the top ten bands of the summer by lovindublin. They were voted Irish band of the week by Dublin Concerts and as top 10 bands to hear by The Last Mixed Tape.
The Ocelots have recently toured and performed with Glen Hansard, Isaac Gracie, Liam Bailey, Brazilian artist Leo Middea and also performed with Oakland based singer Hazel English.
