Welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! Here I, DJ Jordan, present the Discovery Artist of the Week with their latest music and a fun, laid-back interview. All styles and genres are welcome in the Discovery Corner, all I ask for is a willingness to be discovered!

This week on Discovery Corner I’m featuring the Long Beach, NY-based solo project osoosooso. The band is comprised of Jonathan DiMitri of State Lines “fame.” It’s a bit of a departure from State Lines, as the songs are still in the same vein just more to-the-point with punchier choruses. He is set to release the self-titled debut EP March 18th on Soft Speak Records, though we’re getting a bit of a sneak peek. It’s a concept EP about a bear named Theodore who travels to Seattle where he meets a human girl…no spoilers though, you can hear the whole idea in the interview. JD and I discussed the dichotomy of real life/tour life, his five year plan, and what it is about bears that make them so accessible to humanize. Things got real.
