History

Lauran Ozawa's chance meeting with guitarist Sayson urged them to form a new band that would showcase the 20-year-old girl's big voice. Sayson invited his friends, drummer Otep Concepcion and bassist Rommel de la Cruz, to join the band. After much deliberation, the quartet named themselves “Ozawa”. The band was included in WikiPilipinas' list of Top 10 Filipino rock bands of 2010.

Music

Ozawa fuses youth and experience in their musicality and resulting to fresh sounding songs with a '90s pop alternative feel.

The band cites Jaco Pastorious, Eric Johnson, Vinnie Colauita, Joss Stone, Ritchie Kotzen, Sarah McLachlan, Nathan East, and Tori Amos as their music influences.
