OSKA moved to Vienna at the age of 18. She started busking in streets and squares of the capital while also studying pop and jazz singing. She signed to Nettwerk in 2020 and released her debut EP “Honeymoon Phase” in 2021.

She followed the EP with her debut album “My World, My Love, Paris” in February 2022, comprised of 12 songs that see OSKA weave together tales of her family life and the experience of being a young person growing up in the world. With candor and charm, her authentic self comes through in honest lyricism and tender melodies.

OSKA charmed audiences across Europe in 2022, playing around 100 shows. Besides her own tour through Austria and Germany, she joined label-mate Stu Larsen in
spring for his tour, before linking up with Tom Odell as support act for his European Tour and Matt Simons and HAEVN for shows across the Netherlands.

The year 2023 started with not only performing, but also winning her a Music Moves Europe Talent Award at the Eurosonic Showcase Festival. OSKA was constantly working on new music which lead into releasing a first glimpse of her forthcoming album.

In “Like a Song”, her first single OSKA poetically describes the experience of feeling safe, sure, and light after what seems like an eternity of uncertainty. The song transports listeners to a space reminiscent of the carefree, weightless essence of childhood, akin to the comforting embrace of a cherished melody. In OSKA's words, "'like a song' is about a feeling of clarity after experiencing turbulence and discomfort. In the song I‘m describing feeling safe, sure and light again in what feels like forever - light as a feather, as a child, just like a song."

Im March 2024 OSKA gave her US live debut by performing at the New Colossus Festival in New York, SXSW in Austin, Texas and New New Festival in Dallas. Later that year she will be the opener for Coldplay in Vienna, when they play their 4 sold out stadium shows at the Ernst Happel Stadium in August, before she will get back on the road for her first European Headline tour in autumn
