12/OC was born in the family kitchen in Portland, ME when the brothers were under 10 years old. Music was always a part of their household and playing guitar, a daily way of life. Once the family realized the youngest could sing, a star was born as he became the lead singer of the group at the age of 12. The band started to find its groove and open mic nights became the foundation of their beginning. As their popularity has grown so has their versatility; their mix of music has helped increase their fan base across New England, making them one of the fastest growing bands around. Having the most requested song on Maine’s #1 Country Music station for 16 straight weeks, as well as adding a 2022 New England Music Award for Rising Stars to their credit, 12/OC isn't slowing down anytime soon.
