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.

    It's a tad annoying to listen to the female singer/the only relevant Oceana with these ugly trolls in the main pic. [2]

    Yeah, I wish last.fm had a better way of making distinctions between artists with the same name. The band released some really good (not "one-dimensional") records, and seeing so much undeserved hatred for them is disheartening. Though I don't listen to Oceana the pop artist, I do listen to plenty of pop in general and have nothing against it. Listening to pop doesn't equate to having shitty taste, nor does listening to post-hardcore.

    OK... I like "Endless Summer" and I don't know anything about the band except the fact they exist and what kind of music they play, but I have nothing against them, inter alia due to the fact I prefer heavier music to the lighter one ;P Can't we all just agree that it's a shitty thing that there are last.fm sites shared by at least two music formations? You're still in better situation than me - I listen to songs by BOTH an American band called Hurt and a Polish band called Hurt (so I have to go to my library page to know, how many times I've listened to the songs by the respective band.

I didn't knew about this band, i guess they're probably a shitty, unknown and one-dimensional hardcore crap. *in before the "you like pop music you have a horrible taste" coming from the 3 brain-dead fans of this musty ass band*.

    Oh look, RnB Oceana has 3 songs in the top 15 one of them being a single edit. Not a one-hit, but two hit wonder then I guess. Anyway, let me upvote those bandpics.

    55k listeners vs 25k listeners, it's clear which artist is more popular.
