Oceansize Biography

Oceansize is a five-piece rock group formed in Manchester, England, in 1998. The band consists of Mike Vennart (vocals, guitar), Steve Durose (guitar, backing vocals), Richard "Gambler" Ingram (guitar, keyboards), Mark Heron (drums) and Steve Hodson (bass). To date, the band have released three studio albums in addition to a number of minor EPs and singles. The band can be categorized variously as progressive rock, indie rock, heavy metal and space rock, among other genres.

The band are named after the Jane's Addiction song "Ocean Size". According to guitarist Gambler, the band's former bassist [Jon Ellis] came up with the name: "I think, at the time, he was thinking what we would sound like. Jane's Nothing's Shocking album, which has the track "Ocean Size" on it, was definitely a big influence."
