The trio’s infectious songs, infused with hope amidst a backdrop of colorful pop, are connecting with fans desiring to sing along to something that matters.
Zach (25), Jacob (23) and Nich (21) Lovers of all-things music, the brothers have been sharpening their musical abilities for as long as they can remember, which led to a spring tour 2016 with the Newsboys.
After being encouraged by their grandmother to enter the CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off” in 2009, the talented Oswald Brothers Band placed third in the competition garnering national notoriety. The boys began honing their chops, mowing lawns and teaching music lessons in their spare time to finance their music addiction, until Curb Records took notice and signed them to a record deal in 2012.
The hard-working band released a self-titled EP, containing five songs all written or co-written by the siblings, in early 2013 just in time for the beginning of the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular where the brothers scored a high-profile performance slot opening for some of their musical heroes.
Thanks to two top 5 singles including the number one hit “Bright side”, OBB has launched their career at a lightning pace and their insatiable work ethic, introduces audiences to their energetic pop/rock delivery every night It’s a platform that undoubtedly turns dreams into reality at a furious pace and is providing OBB a place to shine. The band of brothers give a high-octane performance every night that resonates with fans, showing everyone that worship can be an enjoyable experience. “I believe we serve a fun God, and I’m not afraid to stand on stage and jump around and run and raise my hands and give everything I have to worshipping God,” says Jacob.
“I grew up singing Matthew West and TobyMac songs,” Zach shares. “These are the people who got us interested in Christian music, and here I am standing next to them.” Ironically, the brothers’ first-ever concert was actually a Winter Jam date in Atlanta, making the experience a dream come true.
The Oswald brothers are currently working on their second full-length album due out in early spring. The trio served on the worship team at Atlanta’s Passion City Church, the congregation founded by Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin.
