Welcome

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

"HOLLOW" - 7th Release - Listen Now

A SONG ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP BREAKDOWN

“Hollow” was written about a relationship breakup, where my partner at the time decided to abruptly end it. I was completely shocked and blindsided, even though it was amicable parting of ways. Was feeling stunned and rocked at the time. Thinking back on those feelings and the situation, I decided to write a song about it and how I felt at the time. I felt completely lost and hollow at the time. It was recorded on the Gold Coast with the same team involved in all my releases, Dylan Smith (Producer/Mix Engineer), Blair Hamilton (Drums), Lawson Hamilton (Bass) and Paul Blakey – 12th & Vine Post (Mastering). It was recorded with two other singles, which will be released on February 10 and April 21 2023.

"NEVERLAND" - 6th Release - Listen Now

A song for Outcasts

“Neverland” is a lot more upbeat than my previous releases and a transition in my sound that included "Silk Dress" . It has massive pop-punk vibes flowing through, which was music that inspired me as a young kid. I took some inspiration from the classic book, "Where The Wild Things Are", in the sense of having a place to go if the world seems too much at times.

“Neverland”, is an oasis and retreat from the daily challenges of life, particularly the current world turmoil & instability. The song is for all those marginalised people out there, that don't quite fit in & get hassled some days. Hence the line in the song "Planet Earth is not my friend". not a great place at times with some people pick on others or isolate them. "Neverland" is dedicated to all those “outcasts” out there. You can hear a snippet of the song at the bottom of this page. Ollie

"SILK DRESS" - 5th Release

Song about pursuing your dreams with gusto!

Have you ever had a Celebrity Crush?

Well I did and I wrote a song about it called "Silk Dress" , which was inspired by my love of Avril Lavigne as a 5 year old! I'd belt out "Skater Boy" on Singstar. I idolised her and ; dreamed of being in a band together. My
celebrity crush.

I wrote the song on my acoustic guitar in my bedroom. Road tested it live for 2 years & recorded it. “Silk Dress” continues the theme of "Boots” - in pursuing your life dreams with gusto, turning up & doing the daily grind. It tells the story of a young musican who follows her dream in working & playing hard in pursuit of cracking it in the charts. Similarly this could apply to anyone's pursuit in life.

There's a teaser of the song at the bottom for you to get a feel of it. Would love you to give it a listen, click on the  PreSave button below, and follow my music and socials. I'm excited for this one, my 5th single and a change in direction musically for me. Ollie

"BOOTS" - 4th Release

Song about overcoming self doubt & having a crack!

"Boot" is about life choices and pursuing your dreams with gusto. Living a life without regrets. We all have periods of self doubt - I know I certainly have! "Boots" is about overcoming your reservations and taking the first steps in pursuing your goals. It’s about having a crack and pursuing your dreams with no regrets.     

I have a snippet of the song at the bottom of this page.

"MR NIGHTOWL" - 3rd Release

A song for insomniacs that are kept awake by the thoughts in their brain

Have my 3rd single release called "Mr Nightowl" which is about an insomniac who can't get to sleep with the music in his/her brain. This is my pain at times when I need to finish off a song rather than being able to go to sleep. End of the day, it applies to anyone with something on their mind that they can't shake off until it's done.I have a 50 second teaser to this song at the bottom of this page. If you like it it would mean the world to me if you could click the Streaming Link Button & choose your platform of choice, listen to the song in full, follow and share the news among your friends. regards Ollie 

Stone Cold Killer" - Official Video

"TAPPING AWAY" - Debut Single Release

A song about dropping your phone and talking to the person right in front of you!

Tapping Away is about technology, the internet, the media and social media have slowly taken over the world, through brainwashing people to be so obsessed about what's going on online rather than what's going on in their surrounding environment. It's about how in an age of revolutionary technology, how society seems to be getting lost in addiction and temporary happiness rather than spending time with people they love/care about.

I wrote this song because whenever I go to the pub, it'll come to a point in the night where everyone looks down at their phones, checking social media etc. rather than communicating with the people around them. Hope you enjoy.
