OBB - OBB TURNS WINTER JAM SUCCESS TOWARDS SIZZLING SUMMER
May 16th, 2013 — Following breakout success on the top-ranked Winter Jam 2013 Tour Spectacular, Curb sibling trio OBB is poised for its national radio debut this summer, in addition to multiple high-profile appearances around the country.
Playing to capacity audiences totaling more than half a million people during Winter Jam—the #1 tour in the world for the first quarter—OBB introduced selections from their critically-acclaimed debut EP. The eponymous project features the first single, “Come On Home,” which will be launched to Christian radio formats nationwide next month. Penned by OBB and Justin Ebach, the hopeful anthem encourages all who are lost, searching and desperate to “come on home” to Christ.
Following its January release, OBB landed at #23 on Billboard’s HeatSeekers chart, as the group quickly became fan favorites during Winter Jam’s 44-city run. Crosswalk.com says, “With a major label deal, top-notch production, and a radio-friendly sound, Atlanta-based trio OBB seems to be positioning itself as a fresh face to watch within the world of Christian music.” To preview the EP, visit http://bit.ly/OBBmusic
OBB will appear at several top festivals this year, including Atlanta Fest and Alive Festival. The group will also perform at Universal Studios' Rock The Universe, playing the "FanZone" on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7. This year’s Rock The Universe will feature such headliners as Switchfoot, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns and Lecrae, among others.
Comprised of 22-year-old Zach Oswald (lead vocals, guitar), 20-year-old Jacob Oswald (lead guitar) and 18-year-old Nich Oswald (drums), the Atlanta-based brothers gained national notoriety in 2009 as finalists on the CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off.” In addition to Winter Jam, OBB has shared the stage with such artists as Switchfoot, Natalie Grant and Big Daddy Weave, among others. The siblings also regularly lead children’s worship at Atlanta’s Passion City Church.
