Ken Oak, vocals and cello, and Ed Gorski, vocals and guitar, have been making music together since 2005. With inspiration from Ryan Adams, Depeche Mode and the Indigo Girls, you can feel Oak and Gorski's diverse musical backgrounds come together, creating something completely incomparable.

Oak and Gorski have the catchy pop/rock acoustics mixed with the quick strokes of a bow and the soft lyrical vocals that will bring them to the top in 2012.Tuesday, March 27

Billboard Magazine: Thumbs up!

Billboard Magazine calls them "soulful," and calming."

Oak and Gorski's harmonies are the new edge in an indie music world that is always craving something unique. With the cello as the lead instrument, Oak and Gorski have created their own brand of "cello rock" that can be heard in full force on their recently released single, Sounds like Love

Kathrin Chapman calls their new release, "...a cross between Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean."

TV and film placements

Indie Rock Reviews says of Oak and Gorski's single, If I Could Tell You: "As listeners you will feel every gorgeous cello note created, wrapping itself around the warmth of Ken Oak's vocals, combining to make If I Could Tell You absolutely distinct and uplifting."

In six years the group has completed twelve national and international tours, sold over 30,000 albums and secured numerous TV and film placements such as Dreamwork’s She’s the Man”, Lifetime’s A Nanny’s Secret and CSI: NY.
