about

Album available on itunes.
itunes.apple.com/ca/album/our-book-the-authors/id319236932

Result of a judicious mixture of piano, sincere vocals and electronic character. The groups music draws it's influences from little and much at the same time: if it borrows from folk it's form, heart and certain rhythmic, the simple and catchy melodies are manifest because of it's authentic but sharp song writing. Always looking for a subtle twist or an warm ambiance OBATA's tunes shower us with soul & essense for some assured moments of non-productivity fixing the wall blissfully.

Our book & the Authors is based in Montreal, QC.
