Welcome to my site, I am a singer-songwriter based on the east coast of Australia. I play guitar-based melodic indie pop/rock tunes. Have been playing live at venues for the past 6 years after learning my chops in street busking throughout the NSW Northern Rivers and southern Gold Coast. Music is my passion and life....... my parents said I could sing before I could talk! Currently, I am a one-man band - singing, playing guitar utilising loop pedals, stomp box, and high hat.
I have released 7 singles since Oct 2020.
“Tapping Away” - is about the social dysfunction of using mobile screens instead of talking to the person right in front of you.
“Stone Cold Killer” - outlines the story of a robbery gone terribly wrong.
“Mr Nightowl” – a song for insomniacs when things on your mind or ideas in your head keep you up all night
"Boots" - a song about overcoming self-doubt, taking the 1st steps in living your best life without regrets
"Silk Dress" - continues the theme of "Boots" of turning up & doing the daily grind & pursuing your dreams with gusto
"Neverland" - a song for all those people that get a hard time most days and are considered outcasts - this one is for you all
"Hollow" - a song about an unexpected breakup and the emotions involved.
"Hollow" is my current release which I wrote about an unexpected relationship breakdown. Gathered my thoughts and wrote a song about how I felt at the time it happened. It turned out ok, we still talk. Would love you to give it a listen and if you like it spread the word and share among your friends.
I have two follow-up releases already recorded for release on 10 February and 21 April 2023. These songs have been recorded with the same team of legends Producer / Mix Engineer Dylan J Smith, siblings Blair (Drums), and Lawson (Bass) Hamilton, and acclaimed Mastering Engineer Paul Blakey all based on the Gold Coast Queensland. I plan to keep releasing singles in the short term and see how my music is received while building an audience. If you've made it this far, thank you for reading & taking an interest in my music - much love. Ollie - November 2022
