"Powerful, melodic crossover jazz singer-songwriter with improvisatory flare...."
-Time-Out

 

“(Old Habits) is a monument to be relished in the border territory of jazz and pop"  
-London Jazz

 

"This is definitely pop music at its most creative"
-Music OMH

 

"Oli can conjure up echoes of Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren and Peter Gabriel, yet still inhabit a sound world all of his own.."
