Cape sound is an ongoing collaboration between Erik Oatman (Hands Mantis) and Jesse Clark (Coda).
Currently (as in this week), we are Erik Oatman, Jesse Clark, and Zephyr Adee.

Originally conceived as an unnamed, instrumental duo and resident band of the Paul Sweet House in 2008, Clark and Oatman were later joined by Alexis Hawks on cello until the recording of "Collabora" in spring 2009.

Between 2009 and spring of 2010, Cape Sound disbanded as Erik moved to Oakland, Jesse traveled through New Zealand, and Alexis joined forces with the group that would become Audiafuana (

Spring 2010 finally saw the release of "Collabora" after extensive collaboration between Erik and Jesse via email and finally mastering after Erik returned to Santa Cruz. That summer also heralded the release of Coda's "Variations on a Theme" and Hands Mantis' "Greatest Hits!" released together with the support of JS DUBS ( performing as the Safehouse-Era line-up of Cape Sound.

Both Clark and Oatman are currently living in Santa Cruz, rehearsing, gigging, and making plans for future albums, both individually and together.
