The Oh Sees are the latest incarnation of songwriter, singer and guitarist John Dwyer’s group. Dwyer, who hails from Providence, RI, has been active on the San Francisco indie scene since the late ’90s, working with several bands, including the Coachwhips, Pink & Brown, Yikes, Up Its Alive, and Swords & Sandals, among others, and he formed OCS initially as a vehicle for the experimental instrumentals he was producing in his home studio.
In time, OCS morphed into an actual band and worked under the usual flurry of names, most notably as the Oh Sees or the Ohsees, and then as Thee Oh Sees and eventually just Oh Sees, featuring Dwyer on guitar and vocals, Brigid Dawson on vocals and tambourine, Petey Dammit on guitar, and Mike Shoun on drums.
Oh Sees tour dates listed on Ents24.com since May 2008.
