"Oli can conjure up echoes of Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren and Peter Gabriel, yet still inhabit a sound world all of his own"
Singer, songwriter, producer & keys man Oli Rockberger divides his time between hometown London and New York City, with performing/recording highlights to date including: Carly Simon, John Mayer, Steve Gadd, Jesse Harris, Gloria Gaynor, Levon Helm, Randy Brecker, Becca Stevens and Chris Dave And The Drumhedz. Current work includes performances as a member of prodigious award-winning UK songstress Laura Mvula's touring band, as well as with his original solo project, including a recent appearance at the prestigious Rochester Jazz Festival (US) and a forthcoming headline slot at Margate Jazz Festival Sept 24. Oli's 4th studio album follow up to his acclaimed "Old Habits" is set for release in 2017.
"...possessing that well-known and well-loved Stingy, Gabrielly, Collinsy tenor rasp…Oli's music sounds very much like the logical product of equal parts ECM and Motown, Keith Jarrett crossed up with Stevie..."
