Based out of BLUUU-VILLE, TORONTO, ONEoak embraces HIP HOP with the passion to emerge as one of music's upcoming groups, and solo artists.
Confident in their ability as artists, and backed by the inspiration of BLUU, and the determination he provides, they created their first solo album, released in Canada, entitled The Immaculate which is an introspective album revealing their struggles as new artists. The sales in Canada garnered ONEoak, Industry Credibility and they will be embarking on their first major tour, in the Summer of 2008. They all received sponsorship, assisting them in releasing the Critically Acclaimed, Immaculate 2 to HMV's worldwide with a JUNE 24th, 08 release date.
After proving that Canadian MC's do not need to fit a cliché mold, ONEoak started their own record label, ONEoak RECORDS Inc. in 2006, in order to continue to pave their own way to success while maintaining their integrity and most notably, their roots.
Their relentless dedication to music now has ONEoak signing and working closely with their own artists as well as producing their own music. they currently have a Major album release and a fully fledged tour in the works. Their success overseas, as well as their success in the U.S. has forced this young group to grow in a very short period of time, and their choice to go against the grain has not only made them successful entrepreneurs, but has positioned them to make their own moves within the music industry.
ONEoak is a group of talented business personal, and muscians. They have come to conquer, and not to bow. With one certified Gold album under their respective belts (in the streets), The Immaculate 2, by ONEoak Records Inc. set for distribution this summer through HMV, will be one of the few albums to Sound Scan 50 000 units, registered by an independent record company. Their widely respected promo for this album, has earned them Critical Acclaim, and with Branches of ONEoak in Boston, New York, Toronto, Germany, Amsterdam, Edmonton, and Vancouver, ONEoak is certainly on the brinsk of Infecting the masses. Permeating the music landscape, and dissecting a Culture through Cutting Edge Promoting, ONEoak has entered the realm of Total Domination.
We are touring North America this summer, with our first date in Toronto, at TRANE STUDIO'S, @ 964 Bathurst and Bloor. Every Hip Hop Enthusiast knows that nothing tops a live show!
