Biography

Welcome to the return of a rock n roll intelligentsia. A decade ago, bassist/singer Jeremy Haffner founded popular Downtown LA art gallery/event space Hangar 1018; where he created a thriving crossover scene between modern art and live music. This led to relationships between Oedipus and such acclaimed and high profile artists as Bob Dob, Seamus Conley, and Tim Peterson; who respectively provided original cover artwork for the band’s two independent releases, 2006’s “Humbility,” 2008’s “Covetous” and a self-titled European release out in October 2010 on MyMusic Records. Together with guitarist Stephen Cohen, who formed the band with Haffner as young teens; and Midwest ex-pat Keith Larsen on drums who joined in 2004, they managed to accomplish an impressive list of feats for an unsigned band. Oedipus has recorded and self-released three full length albums and two EPs; they’ve self-booked and promoted several U.S. tours; played in support of Capitol Records artist Hurt, DreamWorks artist The Apex Theory, Guitar Player Magazine “cover artist” Rafael Moreira, most recently rocked shows with Warner Bros./Sire Records artist Foxy Shazam.

For over a decade Oedipus has been one of LA’s best kept secrets, from their roots as an underground progressive Rock favorite, to achieving status as an international Rock Powerhouse with massive success in Europe in 2010, when Polish radio giant ESKA ROCK added their single “Tres Las”, which went on to top the Polish Rock charts, and became the genesis of FIVE #1 Polish Rock Singles
