Biography

OJ was formed in early 2007. It was initially a project where we would cover and perform Ori L Joans songs. As the lineup got more stable we began looking for a more exciting creative framework. This is when the first Oriel Joans songs were written. We began doing live shows occasionally, but still kept our main focus on songwriting and recording.

In 2009 our lineup was reduced to the quartet we are today. This meant a big change. We rearranged the way we played and our creative interaction. In the process we found ourselves letting go of many preconceived notions about what Oriel Joans should/could be. We suddenly could just play whatever felt meaningful and real. To celebrate this we’re making our first official releases this fall. First off is the single ‘Knuckles Whiten’ + b-side ‘I Only Wish To Lay’ and at the end of the year we’ll present our debut album.

Oriel Joans is:

Kalle - guitar, keys, vocals
Pekka - bass, vocals
Madelene - saxophone, flute, percussion, glockenspiel, keys
Lars - guitar, drums, vocals
