From Salt Lake City, Utah, Brecken Jones and Garret Williams formed the Indie/Alternative/Blues/Whatevertheywannacallit band, OAKR -- a name inspired by the Oquirrh mountain range just west of Salt Lake City. After being introduced by a mutual friend in early 2015, the duo began creating it’s dark indie alternative sound. As multi-instrumentalists the two split time between vocals, guitar, bass, keys, and percussion.
Having played in genres from Folk to Indie Electronica, the two have taken a new path exploring sounds from the eerie and delicate to upbeat and distorted. In search of something deeper and more raw, they set out to nurture the naked elements of what it is to create.
