22 year old twins Brandon and Ashley Watson create The Ocelots. Formerly based in Ireland, they began their musical careers in 2016 street-performing around Europe. They then set up large tours independently with smaller intimate venues such as cafes, bars, churches and house concerts all across Europe. Progressing further to supporting Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Isaac Gracie, Felix Rebil (The Cat Empire), Hazel English and Hudson Taylor. They are now widely known for their instinctual expression in live performances, unique blood harmonies and stories full ofwit, charm and spontaneity. In October 2017 they released their first 5 track EP “Till We Get There” which focused on a raw, passionate folk and blues sound. It was produced in a barn in Croatia, and paved the way for three years of extensive touring, chaotic storytelling, and honest songwriting. In 2019 they completed a six month intensive tour which included 23 dates in Germany and Austria, 25 dates in Italy and 39 dates in Australia.
