-ONOFF are a 3 piece Rock n Roll band hailing from Ireland who are currently based in California. The band have been touring up and down the west coast of the U.S while recording their new album at Tone Freq. in San Jose, California which is set for release later in the year and will be backed up with the guys touring the West Coast of America. This is the first time ONOFF have recorded in the U.S and with the album being mixed and mastered in the infamous District Studios in San Jose, they are extremely proud of their best material to date.
One of their highest accolades so far was their successful debut European album "Don't Take Our Word For It" which saw them on the cover of major music magazines across Europe. The release was supported by 12 Headline tours of Europe including shows in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, England, France and a bunch of summer European Festival Tours. The album was received unanimously well across the European media with rave reviews right across the board. Their powerful catchy songs, along with their intense live shows show why these tours were a huge success. When they returned home to Ireland, ONOFF were awarded the title of "Best Unsigned Irish Band" in a public vote by leading Irish music magazine HOTPRESS.

Some crazy robot at Pandora says:
“Features Hard Rock roots, a subtle use of vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation, varying tempo and time signatures, and minor key tonality.”
“Bluesy alt-rock with soulful vocals and gritty guitar work. There's touches of Seattle grunge on these grooves but mixed up with more than a spoonful of delta blues magic." – FDJ, Canvey Island, UK
"Love the singers voice - Contemporary Ozzyish. Guitar riffs are super hooky and rhythm section is tight as F#%k! Really dope stuff. Just bad ass rock n roll" - Rick Kovac, West Lake Village, CA
