“Delicious harmonies and beautiful storytelling” – NARC

 

‘The Ocelots’ are 26-year-old twins, Ashley and Brandon Watson, originally from Wexford, Ireland, now based in Leipzig, Germany. Starting as a school band, they ventured from blues and alternative rock covers to writing their own folk-inspired music, drawing inspiration from Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel. Post-school, their European backpacking adventures transformed into extensive touring, with numerous headlining shows and festival performances across Europe and Australia. They’ve shared stages with notable artists like Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, and Kim Churchill and are known for their dynamic and storytelling-rich concerts.In 2017, ‘Till We Get There,’ their first EP, earned 1.7 million online streams.

Their debut album, ‘Started to Wonder,’ released in March 2020, showcases twin harmonies and alternative folk, shaped by their touring experiences and passion for paperback fiction. The Ocelots’ international journey continued in 2022, including appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival and the International Folk Alliance festival in Canada, as well as a twenty-date headline tour in the UK and Ireland. June 2023 saw the release of their second EP, ‘Addlepated,’ alongside a mainland Europe support tour with Ocie Elliot. They successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign in September, raising over €20,000 for their upcoming 2024 album. In crafting their music, The Ocelots find inspiration from artists like Paul Simon, Midlake, Fionn Regan, The La’s, Kings of Convenience, Twain, and The Shins.
