Elise Okusami has been making music since an early age and in 2016, she started putting songs out as Oceanator. and the following year released the project’s debut EP. In April, Okusami is releasing the second Oceanator EP, which is called ‘Lows’. Elise also is now part of Tiny Engines – a fitting conjoining of parties, for the mass music making for good.
“In the 4th grade, soon after learning guitar, Okusami started her first band with her brother and a few friends. She hasn’t slowed since then…Oceanator…has exemplified the sheer power of her project’s namesake through and through.” – Delaney Motter
Okusami released her debut EP in February 2017. The EP, recorded at her brother Mike Okusami’s Maryland studio, plays to Okusami’s folk-pop and rock aesthetics.
