Oasis was an American Rock band from Marin County, California, active in the 1970s.
Oasis was "Sherry Fox" (vocals), "Stephen Barncard" (bass guitar), "Kelly Bryan" (bass guitar), "Joel Siegel" (vocals, guitar), "Carl Tassi" (drums), "Ted Teipel" (organ, flute), "John Yager" (vocals, guitar).
"Shelly Fox" was previously in "Cookin' Mama", "Stephen Barncard" also worked with "Chet Nichols" and "David Crosby" and "Kelly Bryan" had earlier been in the short-lived Grootna, and later played on a couple of albums by "Jesse Colin Young".
Oasis released a self-titled, Barncard-produced album in 1973 and was never released in the US, distributed only in Canada (Cranbus No number) on the Cranbus label with limited 500 (?) LP pressing.When the album failed to generate much interest, the members finally went their separate ways.
The album is a Psychedelic Folk-Rock and Pop Rock with great male/female harmonies, strong tracks and a general uplifting quality about it. "David Crosby" and "Bob Weir" contributed in the production of this lp.
The group was previously known as R.J. Fox, who saw a double CD issue of their early seventies material issued in Summer 1994: RJ Fox: Retrospective Dreams (Black Bamboo).
