Based out of New England, Oberon Rose is a Pop/Rock band in the classic sense. Their built around the songwriting team of Tommy Oberon and Rebecca Rose. They released their debut LP, Tell Me All About It, this spring. Now, they’re sharing a retro-vibe video for the single “No Stranger,” that perfectly personifies the spirit of the song. If the Soup Dragons hailed from NEW England, they may have sounded like Oberon Rose.

In the same tradition as Elton John and Bernie Taubin, Tommy writes the music and melodies, whereas Rebecca pens the lyrics.

“A wonderful retro-fried slice of Rock and Psychedelic Pop,” is how WCNI 90.9 FM’s Musical Director Brian Bourgoin describes their sound.

“Big Star, Badfinger, the Kinks, Tom Petty and T.Rex are the bands we are most often compared to, which I take as a great compliment,” says Tommy. “In terms of songwriting, I am heavily influenced by the British Invasion sound. As a lead guitarist, my go to player is Peter Green, the founder of Fleetwood Mac.”
