After a life-threatening car crash, Ollie started recording music as a form of therapy and releasing independently. This lead to fans around the world connecting personally with Ollie’s message, and helping him build an impressive following on streaming and social platforms in a short period of time.
Starting 2019 off with a 3 song EP Titled “Lost”, Ollie landed numerous playlists and features most notably Spotify ’s New Music Friday (10x countries) and Chill Hits, Apple Music’s Best of the Week and Breaking R&B, multiple YouTube’s channels amassing millions of plays, plus more placements on Deezer, Amazon and Google Play. With momentum behind him, Ollie brought his music to the live stage touching his fans across Germany, UK, US and Canada.
As this exciting year continued into September, Ollie captured the attention of LA rising star Phora, who invited him to support on a string of sold out shows in major US markets. ”I started writing music as a way to deal with the things that I’ve been through in my life. Somehow writing down a lyric or singing a melody that sounds like how I feel is so comforting.
It makes whatever I’m going through in that moment feel less powerful, almost as if I can control it.” says Ollie, “I wrote this song from my own perspective, as well as a friend of mine who I watched go through a very difficult time, getting these thoughts and stories off my chest has helped me tremendously.” These stories are what lead Ollie to record the emotional single, “Broken Down.”
