Coming out of Hollywood, Florida, The Osceola Brothers conjure up the likes of the rock bands who’ve come before them such as the New York Dolls and Jimi Hendrix. Established in 2012, the Indigenous trio consisting of brothers: Cameron (vocals/guitar), Tyson (bass/vocals) and Sheldon Osceola (drums/vocals) “give you the nostalgic taste of classic rock and translates it into this new age of music,” according to Mack Walker, VoxATL.
Born and raised on the Seminole Reservation in Hollywood, Florida, Cameron received his first acoustic guitar at 7 years old and taught himself to play by ear. It wasn’t until he was 13 that he decided to make music his career and start a band. After being exposed to bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix, nothing would stand in the way of his dream. In 2012, after Sheldon received a drum kit from a family friend and Tyson a bass as a birthday present, The Osceola Brothers were formed. Their first show was in 2012 when relative, Paul Buster, put together a memorial concert at the Seminole Tribal Office Auditorium on the Seminole Hollywood Reservation. The following year the band began to build a fanbase around the South Florida area, playing at food truck rallies, and multiple music festivals and venues throughout the U.S.
Since their formation in 2012, their music and appeal has impacted the hearts and minds of many, which have led them to open and share the stage with many great names in music including Derek Miller, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Sarah Evans, Keith Secola, Robert Randolph, Indigenous, Jonny Lang, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. In 2014 and 2015 Cameron was invited to join the Experience Hendrix Tour and shared the stage with Billy Cox (Jimi Hendrix), Chris Layton (Stevie Ray Vaughan), Mato Nanji (Indigenous), Eric Gales, Eric Johnson and more. Following the tour, The Osceola Brothers wrote and recorded their debut EP Out Of Nowhere, co-produced by award- winning musician Derek Miller and tracked at Osceola Circle Studios and The Mojo Oil Factory in Nashville. In May of 2015, the band got a 7 minute spot at the Hard Rock Rising Festival in Miami, Florida. Following their short performance, the promoter suggested they make their way to Europe. In July of 2015 they made their European debut playing the main stage at the Hard Rock Rising Festival in Barcelona, Spain sharing the bill with Lenny Kravitz, Kings of Leon and more.
In 2016 the debut EP ‘Out Of Nowhere’ was released to which they toured behind in the summer of 2017. February of 2019 brought the Soundcloud release of the debut LP ‘Holding On To Love’, with the sophomore EP ‘One To Hold On To’, recorded at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and released on Christmas Day 2020. In 2021 they began to write and record their 2nd full length album. They also performed in Deadwood, SD for the famous Sturgis Rally! 2022 they toured from South Florida to Oklahoma, to Nashville; won their first battle of the bands performance; opened for the opener of the Motley Crue Stadium Tour in Jacksonville; and released their newest single "Gold Digger" on Soundcloud.
2023 they begin their "Save Our Souls" Tour which starts in SFL and will makes its way up the US.
Whoever says rock and roll is dead has clearly never experienced The Osceola Brothers first hand. Take it from Destine Manson, also from VoxATL, “The energy of the show stayed at a 10 out of 10 the whole night... The allure of the purple and blue lights, along with the fog and hair-shaking rockers on stage made for an unforgettable night. Unlike other rock bands today, there was something familiar but fresh about their sound. It was classic enough to make you feel the same way you felt listening to some of the most popular bands before the 2000s, but their style and approach was something I have never seen before. With a new album and tour in the works, The Osceola Brothers are ready - and they don’t look like they’re going be stopped any time soon.
