Late 2002 saw Oli pick up a guitar for the first time. Two and a half years later at age of 15 he was invited to America as the guest of American Blues band Blinddog Smokin’. This first trip saw Oli on the same stage as Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal.
In 2008 Thomas Ruf of the German Blues label, flew into the UK to see Oli perform and signed him on the spot! Oli’s debut album, OPEN ROAD, was recorded and released later that year and received great reviews across the UK and Europe. A further three Blues albums were released on Ruf Records and Oli went on tour with people such as John Mayall, Walter Trout, Robben Ford. He performed at numerous festivals, including Glastonbury, going on to numerous headline gigs in the UK, Europe and the States.
2014 saw Oli leave Ruf Records and pursue a different genre, Rock with his hit band, RAVENEYE.
However, Oli has never lost the love of the Blues or his appreciation of the Blues fans that have supported him over the years, so he will always try to find a space for a select number of Blues gigs each year.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see this young singer, songwriter and stunning guitarist.
