"Powerful, melodic crossover jazz singer-songwriter with improvisatory flare...."
“(Old Habits) is a monument to be relished in the border territory of jazz and pop"
"This is definitely pop music at its most creative"
"Oli can conjure up echoes of Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren and Peter Gabriel, yet still inhabit a sound world all of his own.."
