Biography

Oriel Joans is a pop quintet from Stockholm, Sweden. The members got together in early 2007 and has since then worked intensely on recording, performing and digitally releasing their material. Musical backgrounds within the band display a wide spectrum of styles: all from classic ensembles to folksy singer-songwriter projects and heavier organic genres are represented. Due to this the influences vary widely, and make it rather remarkable that they have found such a uniform sound as a group. An early point of contact turned out to be the melodies; OJ’s short and expressive songs got them on national radio rapidly, despite hardly knowing anyone in the Swedish capital, let alone in the media (all members are small town people or Finnish immigrants). After most of 2007 spent creating a repertoire and getting it out to the listeners Oriel Joans continued with a number of live appearances that convinced them to give music a full time go.
