Formed in 2015 originally as a song development deal called The Lacie Marie Project, Oceana quickly grew into a full fledged band. Their unique sound: part folk, part rock, a splash of jazz in an indie cocktail and a whiskey chaser. Lacie de Souza is the lead vocalist - enchanting audiences with her captivating, hopeful voice. Gerard Estella - songwriter, guitar noodler and piano monkey - is the primary songwriter and arranger for Oceana. Through voice and song, they share their stories of love, loss and life. They recorded their first full length album in 2017 for Relentless Records, Sony Music Entertainment UK. Oceana’s self-titled album was subsequently released in the U.S. in the spring of 2018. In 2021, Oceana recorded their second album in the mountains of Vermont. Two new yahoos were asked to take the journey with them to Guildford Sound to create Roots and Branches and well…they never left! Erika Bailey - part-time writer and musician, part-time fintech journalist, part-time improv nerd - and Lincoln Ginsberg - multi-instrumentalist, former jazz square dancer and harmony master - officially joined Oceana in March 2022. Their first album as a four piece, Roots & Branches, was released December of 2022. Stay tuned for fall and winter show dates in the Midwest and beyond!
