Tay Oskee influenced by paradise
TAY Oskee is a 27-year-old singer-songwriter from Mission Beach, Australia.
He is a multi-instrumentalist playing different types of guitars, banjo, kora, harmonica and percussion.
With a musical style that is wide and varied Tay can take you on a journey from chilled beach tunes to punchy riff-driven roots music with distinctive multicultural influences.
Raised in what most would call paradise, Tay took many influences from the surrounding beauty of Mission Beach, and also his early years of living amongst his adopted Yolngu family in north-east Arnhem Land.
It was here where he was surrounded by a strong connection to land and the sounds of ancient music and dance.
These influences can be heard in his lyrics and music where he communicates through songs of nature, hope, love, and personal journeys.
With his live shows being praised for their dynamic range of song types and rhythms, Tay has already played festivals such as Island Vibes Festival, Kuranda Roots Festival and has supported such acts as Ash Grunwald and The Wandering Eyes.
