New Jersey pop-rock band, Ocean Grove, just released their EP, Another Place To Stay, to great success during summer 2011. The band is currently preparing to extensively hit the road on two tours. First up, a 10-date, South American tour opening for their good friend and musical collaborator, Nick Jonas. Once the band makes it back to the states they'll be embarking on a co-headlining tour alongside Voxhaul Broadcast with very special guest Robert Schwartzman, vocalist of Rooney (all tour dates below).

Bands come together in various ways, usually by chance meetings, Craigslist ads, or music class- but few can say their lineup was created after sharing the experience of playing in a backing band for one of the biggest bands in the world. After touring the globe and enjoying some of the greatest times of their lives, John Taylor (vocals/guitar), Ryan Liestman (keys/backing vocals), Greg Garbowsky (bass/backing vocals), Jack Lawless (drums) decided it was time to start their own project, one that would see them develop a truly unique rock n' roll sound - Ocean Grove.


Once Ocean Grove finished their tour commitments, they were ready to record their first EP Little Record. In Spring 2010, they spent time in LA writing with various co-writers, but once recorded, the band knew the EP wasn't the exact direction they had hoped to take. They packed up and went back to the East coast- to Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

There, the band shacked up in a beautiful Victorian home near the ocean to focus on a real and more rock n' roll sound. After recording 14 songs in two weeks, Ocean Grove finally felt they had come into their own. The EP, Another Place to Stay, mixed byPaul Hager (Van Halen, Goo Goo Dolls, American Hi-Fi) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Beastie Boys) is an EP filled with feel good songs pulling from their greatest influences such as The Beach Boys, Tom Petty, and Weezer. The inspiration for the EP came from years of experiences and all the little things life throws our way.

The band is proud of all their past accomplishments like having played with acts such as Stevie Wonder, Brad PaiselyVince Gilland performing on over 50 television shows, but Ocean Grove is ready to continue something truly special and all their own, just like their bond as a band. With their new EP, and positive outlook on all that's to come, they are ready for just about anything.
