South Carolina-based band Oracle Blue had its official start in January of 2017, though the members began performing together as university classmates in 2013. As students they received a DownBeat Student Music Award for an Outstanding Performance in the Blues/Pop/Rock Group category.
Oracle Blue has performed at countless local events and recently embarked on a European tour with performances at Montreux, Umbria and Vienne jazz festivals.
In February of 2018 Oracle Blue was selected via contest to open for five-time GRAMMY Award-winning Lalah Hathaway. Oracle Blue performed opening sets at the Knight Theatre at the Levine Center of the Arts (Charlotte, NC) and at the Cone Denim Entertainment Center (Greensboro, NC) as part of Lalah Hathaway’s “Honestly” album release tour.
The group took 2017 to hone their craft, compose original music, and prepare for the release of their debut album Gilded Kingdoms in spring of 2018. Moving forward with determination and excitement, the future is looking bright for Oracle Blue.
