Originally hailing from Saint Louis, MO, Ozzie Cruse dabbled with various
instruments during his youth without finding his musical voice. Picking up
playing bass at age 20 like a true late bloomer, Ozzie realized the instrument
clicked with his sensibilities as he quickly displayed abilities of a natural
bass player. Ozzie has always been a student of all types of music but this was
accelerated by his voracious appetite for learning to play songs, new styles and
After rounding out rhythm sections for many bands in the St. Louis area, Ozzie
began to experiment with original electronic songs, sample based creations and
remixing his own band's songs. This change in creative approach gave him dynamic
freedoms and allowed Ozzie to explore and create outside of the limits of the
standard band environment of bass, guitar, keys and drums. Since relocating to
Southern California, Ozzie has reached a creative stride while honing his
tendencies of crossing into and mixing multiple genres naturally.
Ozzie strives to create a new and fresh 'dish' with each unique composition
regardless of the ingredients used so grab a taste and enjoy the flavors.
