Since their local debut at The Ark’s Art Fair Stage in 2019, Oshima Brothers have generated mounting excitement among Michigan audiences. 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-richblend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. On stage, Sean and Jamie create a full and complex sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion Their art fuses songwriting with production, engineering, multi-instrumentalism, and filmmaking. But they cultivate a brand of roots pop that is infectious and always fun. Oshima Brothers currently have two albums to their credit, producing their self-titled debut in 2016, followed by the five-track EP “Under The Same Stars” in 2019.  The brothers write, record and produce all of their music and videos, mostly in their home studio in Maine. Says Maine Public Radio’s Sara Willis, “Those brother harmonies can’t be beat. And they are uplifting and, let’s face it, we need uplifting these days. AND, they are from Maine! Born and bred.”
