Biography

At least two artists use the name Oceana:

1. A post-hardcore/indie rock band from St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
2. A singer from Germany also known as Oceana Mahlmann.

1. Oceana is (as of November 3rd, 2009) a 4-piece band from St. Petersburg, Tampa, Florida that released two full length albums and an EP, entitled The Tide, Birth Eater and Clean Head respectively. They announced they were disbanding 6/19/09, however as of November 3rd, 2009 they are back together with a changed line-up. They are currently unsigned.

The original members of Oceana had previously been in other local bands in the Tampa - St. Petersburg area, before finally gathering and forming Oceana in 2007

The Tide, the debut album, was released through Rise Records March 4th, 2008. Keith Jones, Oceana’s vocalist and frontman at that time, and James O’Brien, who was doing the clean vocals and played the drums, left the band shortly after the release due to some personal issues. Shortly after Keith’s and James’ departure Brennan Taulbee joined the band to replace Keith’s role as vocalist. Brennan contributed clean and screaming vocals during the tours and the new album Birth Eater. Denny Agosto, the new drummer, was picked up by Oceana a bit later aswell.

The Tide became the signature album of Oceana, featuring atmospheric and ambient instrumental delivery with a mix of metalcore typical breakdowns and subtle use of electronics and dramatic song-writing. It was produced and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, New Found Glory and Paramore) and Cameron Mizell.
