Okemah are the bastard sons of American roots music. for fifteen years they have toured the landscape of their favorite styles of music (folk, blues, jazz, and country) and have been simmering these ingredients into a style they can call all their own. Okemah’s sound is based upon a foundation of tightly written songs filled with vocal harmonies and soulful communication between the players. Ultimately, Okemah is a Rock n’ roll band in
the great tradition of American music. following the line of their musical anscestors, they have one foot firmly planted in american roots music and the other in unchartered territory . The time is now and Okemah looks forward to bringing their music to you.
