The love of early 20th century American roots music is very apparent with Oak Hill Drifters, who are based out of Orlando, Florida. Their music and performance echos the 1940’s – 1960’s paying homage to some of the great music writers and innovators of rockabilly, western swing, jump blues, country and the foundation of R&B.
The band’s current iteration was formed in 2014 where its founder, Tommy Cooper recruited an all-star cast of performers including Rachel Decker, Craig Roy, George Dimitrov and Tom Pearce whose collective resumes include work with The HoneyBees out of Chicago, as well as Central Florida icons Hindu Cowboys and Rocket-88. Tommy and Rachel’s impeccable vocal harmonies capture the essence of great duos of the past, reminiscent to the likes of the Everly Brothers and Louvin Brothers.
In mid 2016, the band released its debut 11 song compilation, “Fly Off The Panhandle.” A 7-song EP is slated to be released in April 2018.
