24-year old twins Brandon and Ashley Watson create The Ocelots. Formerly based in Ireland, they began their musical careers in 2016 street-performing around mainland Europe. In October 2017 they released a five-track EP “Till We Get There” which paved the way to a raw, passionate folk & blues sound.

Following this release they toured extensively, playing smaller festivals, house concerts, bars and churches, arriving spontaneously in various cities in Europe, looking for support slots, open mics and busking avenues. Eventually, the duo began playing to larger audiences, jumping on tours with international acts like Jack Johnson, Felix Rebil (The Cat Empire), Isaac Gracie and Kim Churchill. They played numerous shows with well-known Irish artists like Glen Hansard and Hudson Taylor and made appearances in the Philidelphia Folk Festival, Tollwood, Electric Picnic amongst others. In 2019, the brothers moved to Leipzig, having recently completed a six-month intensive tour. They played 87 concerts in those six months, wandering through Australia, Ireland and Mainland Europe. Finally, they began recording their Debut Album. It was recorded in two weeks inside a cottage located in West Cork. The debut album “Started to Wonder’ holds elements of folk and alternative rock; capturing feelings of the melancholic, road-worn and homeward bound.
