Biography

(2003 – present)

A teen sextet from Osaka, ORESKABAND (オレスカバンド) brings a new variety to Japanese music with the usual guitar, bass and drums sounds, but also with the addition of instruments from the brass and sax families. Their music is upbeat and spunky, their own take on ska rock.
ORESKABAND have already performed in the USA as part of the Japan Nite Tour in March 2007, and are currently performing across the United States on the Vans Warped Tour.

BIOGRAPHY

Before ORESKABAND’s formation in 2003, TOMI, TAE-SAN and SAKI formed a band with other friends. Upon leaving that band, TAE-SAN,along with IKASU formed a new band. It wasn’t too long, during their middle school years, before they became the teen girl sextet ORESKABAND. They began performing at local clubs and quickly built a following with their energetic live shows and colorful personalities.

They started recording their own material and released their first album PENPAL in 2005. To show how determined they were for their band to succeed, each 15 year-old pitched in about $200 and created their first album themselves, selling it at the live houses where they performed. It was this album, along with live shows and appearances, which helped to expand their fan base outside of their hometown. Having caught the attention of A&R reps, ORESKABAND signed to Sony Music Japan in 2006 while still in high school.
