About Lost Ox
Prog rockabilly funk
Genre-blending jammers Lost Ox are based out of Portland, OR. The band, known for combining elements of funk, psychedelia, jazz, Americana, and progressive rock, was formed in 2017. Rooted both in the jamband resurgence of the 1990s and the original 1960s psychedelic folk rock revolution, their style encompasses many familiar jam tropes, all executed and reimagined with an inspired, dauntless precision. The band has released three full length albums, Wildheart (2018), Earthsnake (2021), and Stuck (2022), with plans for a fourth in 2023. The Ox has stampeded down the coast to California and east toward the Rocky Mountains, playing hundreds of national gigs, traveling tens of thousands of miles… with no end to adventure in sight.
