WHITE OAK BARRELS
White Oak Barrels formed in late 2011 as an acoustic duo with folk roots and musings towards writing recording and playing. Through various change-overs the band gained and lost members in a state of constant flux. Eventually in October of 2012 Vocalist and guitarist Timmy (Michael O Toole) met Mexican Drummer Carlos Juan Pablo Gamez by chance encounter. The joining of Carlos spliced flavours of rock into the folk style and and added more electric styling to the acoustic sound. Now with the steady back beat, the intensity level of the band increased. After 6 months of work and one more change, the band reached its final configuration, with Klaus Miller of Andújar, Spain on bass guitar. Klaus’s hip-hop background added one final element to the mix of genres. After a brief stint under other names White Oak Barrels was born out of Carlos’s tendency to carry hot sauce in his breast pocket. With Folk sentiments, electric edge and bouncing rhythms White Oak Barrels plays out of earthy Irish roots and with a Latin flare
