Born on the banks of the Ohio River, Oyo is a dynamic six-piece roots band that formed in the back of Marietta’s JustAJar Design Press over the course of jam sessions, eventually solidifying original work that utilizes hearty traditional Appalachian instrumentation rife with pulsating rhythm and poignant lyricism. Gathered around a single mic, Oyo's high-energy performances are equal parts honky tonk and barn dance, with an indie-rock undercurrent. Oyo trades off lead vocals between Aaron Martin (fiddle, mandolin), Cole Adair (guitar) and Michael Bond (guitar, keys, harmonica, spoons), with Bobby Rosenstock (banjo), Drew Tanner (bass), and Joe Ryckebosch (drums, washboard) joining in.
