Based in Encinitas, Ocelot mixes psychedelia and old-attitude rock and roll. The group was founded by James Upton and his ghostly reincarnations of heavy blues riffs, and Stephanie Brown, whose abstract tales of everyday tribulations are sung in a soulful mezzo-soprano with just a sip of Jack Daniel's.

The duo was later joined by drummer Andrew Ware (New Archaic, Tan Sister Radio), keyboardist Evan Wenskay (Sacri Monti), and bassist Kyre Wilcox. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2016.
