Ockham's Razor / Bio

"A crossbreed of the traditionalism of the Chieftains and the hard stomp of the Pogues, Seattle's own Ockham's Razor take the Gaelic-Celtic genre into the 21st century with a keen sense of the past coupled with a progressive attitude that is entirely fresh."

Ockham’s Razor is a Seattle based Celtic fusion band that blends influences of Celtic and Irish tradition with rock, pop, gypsy, punk, jazz, bluegrass, and folk elements to carve out a unique and indelible niche in the Celtic folk genre.

Hailed as both “Turbo Celtic” and “Ethno Punk,” since 2006 Ockham’s Razor has performed with notable bands like Young Dubliners, Enter the Haggis and Paperboys, and has even performed alongside Irish music luminaries, the Chieftains.

With two studio albums under their belt, their music has been featured on radio and podcasts in places as far flung as India and Australia as well as the US, Canada, and the rest of North America, England, Scotland, Ireland and the rest of Europe.

They have been featured on the Portland OR based PDXPosed and Alaska Airline’s In Flight Entertainment Channel, Next Stop.

"Mixing traditional Celtic music with their own brand of energy, the band has been hailed for bringing "kind of a Gaelic-Celtic flavor with an interesting pop sensibility" to the Celtic music world. In fact, they are known for adding a youthful twist to traditional Celtic songs.”
