“Oli can conjure up echoes of – Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren and Peter Gabriel - yet still inhabit a sound world all of his own” - Jazzwise (UK)
Whether you first discover singer/songwriter & pianist Oli Rockberger through his work as a solo artist, producer/arranger, studio keys sideman, or as 1/3 of acclaimed band/production team Mister Barrington, you will be sure to find a distinctive musical voice running through the rich and varied work he does. Rockberger, who divides his time between New York and his native London, has appeared live/ on recordings alongside Levon Helm, Gloria Gaynor, Jesse Harris, John Mayer, Steve Jordan, Chris "Daddy" Dave with Robert Glasper and Derrick Hodge, Nathan East, Jackie De Shannon, Steve Gadd and Les McCann. His songs have been covered by a diverse group of artists which includes two time BBC Jazz Award- winning vocalist/pianist Liane Carroll, US Soul Train Award winner Nicole Henry, Columbia recording artist Marc Sway, legendary David Letterman show bassist Will Lee, and multi-grammy winning trumpeter/composer Randy Brecker (with whom Rockberger also tours). In 2013 Rockberger released his sophomore solo album "Old Habits", co-produced alongside Chris Abell (Yo Yo Ma, Chris Thile) which was described by London Jazz as a "monument to be relished in the border territory of jazz and pop" and named Jazz FM's album of the week (Feb '13), culminating in appearances at the UK's prestigious London Jazz and Love Supreme Festivals. Current work includes production on a new solo album, in addition to producing/arranging/recording for other artists.
