The always surprising, risk-taking, gear-shifting, soul-belting (and, now award-winning!) Oh Chays are beholden to no single genre. Currently writing and recording their second album, The Oh Chays are a husband and wife duo raised on trad jazz, rockabilly, gospel, and the Detroit radio of the 70's and 80's. Consistently wowing audiences with their versatile musicianship, songwriting, and razor-sharp wit, The Oh Chays are not to be missed live!
The Oh Chays have racked up an impressive list of accomplishments including winning the 2017 Canada South Songwriting Competition with their song The Glass, competing in The 31st International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee, being regional finalists twice in CBC’s Searchlight Song Competition, as well as reaching the finals of the Toronto Blues Society's 2014 Talent Search. The Oh Chays have shared the stage with luminaries such as KEN WHITLEY, OH SUSANNA, WENDELL FERGUSON, LINDA MCRAE, THE BOMBADILS, JAKE CHISHOLM, CHERYL LESCOM, PHILIP SAYCE, THE KIRBY SEWELL BAND, CHUCK JACKSON, THE MARIGOLDS, ARIANA GILLIS, KEN YATES AND JANE SIBERRY. Kelly's vocals, which range from a country-gospel croon to a soulful growl and everywhere in between feature prominently on their debut album, Big Old World, while Michael's rock-solid support on percussion, vocals and guitar add extra dimensions of sonic tastiness to Kelly's considerable piano and organ chops!
The Oh Chays are currently finishing work on their sophomore album which will be released in June of 2018.
