Oceanic is a versatile indie pop band based in Charlotte, NC. Influenced by a number of genres, they aim to create original music with diversity that enables the listener to see the world in a new way.
Even before Oceanic was formed, each member of the band was well-versed in performing arts. This rising band works together to create high-enthusiasm shows focused on personality, musical interest, and artistic visual effects.
In 2022, Oceanic completed an indie tour of the lower east coast from Virginia to Florida. In 2023, they are releasing their debut album, “No, Human,” and continuing to tour and release new music throughout the year.

Formed during the pandemic lockdown, Willingdon started as a duo project and has expanded to a five piece band endeavor. Having recently released a debut single It’s Not Over the group of friends, coworkers and roommates are excited to release more pieces of the project over the course of the spring.
Willingdon’s music is about the feeling of being grown a bit too soon. The cardinal sin of moving past what hasn’t yet been moved in. The ill-fitting nature of a skin too big on bones too frail.
