More details ↓

Oscar LaDell, 23, was born in the US and raised in Purakaunui, Dunedin. A second-generation musician, Oscar started out playing standards in bars around Dunedin, featuring songs by Muddy Waters, BB King and Guitar Slim. Over the years, funk, rock, soul, R&B and more have found their way into Oscar’s music.

In the space of one of LaDell’s original songs, the sound can range from a gentle slow dance to explosive and hypnotic guitar solos. Oscar’s powerful and expressive guitar playing and soulful singing act as one to create a sound that is both reminiscent of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and fresh.

Oscar is now based in Melbourne, Australia and has many exciting projects and shows slated for the upcoming year.


Noakesy’s highly anticipated launch of the new single comes after a long stint of raging gigs around Perth, the “piano man of this generation” holding the crowd in the palm of his hand with the greatest of ease as he bashes the keys!
