The O's perform "You Are The Light"

The O’s (Taylor Young (Burly Lower Vocals, Guitar, Kick Drum) and John Pedigo (Higher squirrelly vocals, banjo, lowebro, harmonica, tambo) started their group in the summer of 2008, and after having known each other through all of their other groups (Polyphonic Spree, Young Heart Attack, Slick 57, Rose County Fair, Hi-Fi Drowning, etc), it was an easy upstart and took no time jumping in head first. They both had songs that they felt needed to be played but no band to use as an outlet. Three months later, they entered the recording studio and recorded an EP which ended up being half of their first album “We Are The O’s” (2009 Idol Records).

They have since toured relentlessly all across the US, UK, Europe, and even jaunted to Hawaii, hi-fiving friends and fans alike; just trying to keep themselves out on the road and creating new music for good people. In 2011, they recorded their second album with the Grammy award winning Stuart Sikes. Entitled “Between The Two,” they decided to play every instrument on the album and had Stuart man the helm. It was liberating and exciting and brought them further than they had been before.

They hit the road again jumping back and forth across the great ponds, made music videos, bought and broke vans, bought and broke gear, ate poorly, ate well, had fun and not so much fun, met amazing people, learned a lot about life, forgot a lot of things, slept a little, bought and wore out hundreds of pairs of pants and shirts, resoled their cowboy boots countless times, played with incredible artists, performed on TV shows, talk shows, radio shows, festivals, clubs, bars, restaurants, several different countries and continents, swam in clear water, dredged through the gulf, and other countless, endless adventures to name.

They did this all as they have always, to make good music for good people.

And into the future they go with “Thunderdog”, their third studio album released in July of 2013. They decided to record the majority of the new album, at the recommendation of their great producer, Chris “Frenchie” Smith, in Tornillo, TX at the legendary Sonic Ranch Studio. It’s a state of the art, top notch studio where they could stay on site, eat on site, and record without distractions (other than the delicious Sonic Ranch “Salsa de Roja” that lead to many debates on whether or not anything would taste good without it afterwords…) They finished up the album at The Bubble in Austin, TX and look forward to getting it out the door and into everyone’s hands!
