ozello is a five-piece queercore band of punks from Atlanta that formed in an attic in late 2016 with just two members. after growing to its current roster of five, ozello started playing shows across the Southeast.
ozello gets their name from frontperson Jeofry's late grandmother, whose home was off Ozello Street. ozello's sound and identity is centered around Jeofry's experiences as a depressed queer person growing up in rural Georgia. they write from the heart and dive deep into their personal traumas and life experiences to pull out the "sad gay yelling" that ozello is known for.
ozello makes queercore music that is made up of a hodgepodge of sounds and inspirations from many genres, from bluegrass to emo to dark folk to indie rock.
ozello is releasing their first full-length album with Say-10 Records in late 2023.
