The Ocelots

Event

‘The Ocelots’ is a project created by twins Ashley & Brandon Watson. Originally based in Wexford, Ireland, they now reside in Leipzig, Germany. The Ocelots were formerly a school band, playing blues standards and alternative rock during lunchtime. During this time, Brandon & Ashley started writing their own music, pursuing the direction of Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel’s folk sensibilities. They finished school and backpacked around Europe, playing shows and street-performing wherever they could. They released their first EP in 2017 ‘Till We Get There’ which hit 1.7 million online streams.

In the next three years, backpacking became extensive touring, headlining shows and festivals all over Europe and Australia. They joined stages with artists such as Jack Johnson, Glen Hansard, Hudson Taylor and Kim Churchill, amongst many others. The Ocelots have built a reputation for dynamic, intimate concerts, filled with humour and storytelling.

Their debut album ‘Started to Wonder’ was released in March 2020, containing songs rich in twin harmony and alternative folk, carved from touring delirium and over-exposure to paperback fiction.

In 2022, The Ocelots continue their international shows, including a twenty-date UK & Ireland tour. They will be appearing at the Cambridge Folk Festival and the International Folk Alliance festival in Canada. Their new EP ‘Wild Dogs & Coyotes’ is scheduled to be released in September.

The Ocelots claim inspiration in their music from Paul Simon, Midlake, Fionn Regan, The La’s, Kings of Convenience, Twain and The Shins.
