WHO IS EZEKIEL OX?
Ezekiel Ox is one of the world's most prolific and outspoken multidisciplinary artists, celebrating more than twenty years as a career Musician, Songwriter, Entertainer, Activist & Athlete. He has built a reputation globally as a captivating front-man through relentless touring, leading acts such as Mammal, Full Scale, The Nerve, Over-Reactor, Superheist, and his solo rock band EOX.
Never one to stop for breath, the 40 year old is also widely known for his work as a community organiser, activist and general thorn in the side of the corrupt, abusive or exploitative ruling class systems of the world. Ox doesn't just believe that another world is possible, he actively shows people it is, regularly involving himself in and leading anti-war/anti-capitalist occupations, marches and trade union activities.
Through commitment, work ethic and integrity, he has built a fiercely loyal following among fans of his various projects and causes, playing sold out shows in venues across Australia, the UK and USA. Pre-Covid, Ox was a regular fixture at iconic Australian music festivals such as the Big Day Out, Pyramid Rock, Groovin The Moo, among countless others, as well as playing support to KISS, Jimmy Barnes, The Veronicas, Sebastian Bach, Evenescence, Mark Seymour, Karnivool, Cog, Techn9ne and many more.
Ox can be heard on more than twenty five studio releases and has been photographed, quoted and featured in countless publications, newspapers and magazines. Since 2016 alone he has pumped out nine studio releases across his many projects, including his two solo EP's 'Proper Gander' (2016) and 'Cheering Bombs From Deckchairs' (2019). In the past 20 years, he has also appeared in Mamma Mia! (Original Australian Cast), two feature films (Blockhouse Blues & The Real Thing), Tartuffe (Malthouse Theatre) and myriad other theatre, TV and film roles.
When the March 2020 lockdowns swept across the globe, Ox was quick off the mark moving into live streaming, and his series of concerts on Twitch, Youtube and Facebook have seen thousands signing up and logging on for their dose of "Zeke" live in their lounge-room. On April 3-4 2020, Ox and his band streamed live for 24 hours straight from Sydney, Australia, still the only event of it's kind organised since CV-19 restrictions halted live performance.
Ox lives on the stunning Lake Macquarie in NSW, Australia, and begins studying law at Newcastle University in January 2021. In the future, he plans on getting married to Ashlea, and then getting arrested for his activism a lot more as soon as his son Griffin turns 18.
