Hailing from New York City, Oak & Ash formed in late 2014 and set out to change the landscape of the Pop/ Rock scene with a variety of soulfully written and performed original records. Their explosive anthems, soaring guitar solos, soulful vocals, and recognizable pop song structure, has been compared to a mix between Kings of Leon, Maroon 5, and Coldplay.

In August of 2016 they were named the winner of Newsday's Battle of the Bands contest and in early 2017 they were named the winner of Bon Jovi's "Opening Act Contest". Just over three years after its formation, the group has booked renowned venues such as The Gramercy Theatre, Irving Plaza, The Paramount Theatre, Webster Hall, and most recently Madison Square Garden, opening for Bon Jovi.
