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

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

A little about Oli….

Singer, songwriter, producer & keys man Oli Rockberger divides his time between hometown London and New York City with performing/recording credits including Carly Simon, John Mayer, Jesse Harris, Gloria Gaynor, Levon Helm, Judy Collins and Chris Daddy Dave wi/Robert Glasper. Current work includes lending finishing touches to a 4th solo record (to be released 2016), following on from his acclaimed self-release "Old Habits" (2013), which was championed by the UK's Jazz FM , and described as a "monument to be relished in the border territory between jazz and pop" (London Jazz).  In addition to his solo work, Oli continues to write/produce for artists on both sides of the pond, with recent projects including prodigious London electronic artist Terrane (co-production), multi-grammy winner Randy Brecker (co-writing) and acclaimed London=born-NY based indi-songstress Cariad Harmon (co-writing/co-production) , whose most recent self-titled album received a 3 1/2 star review in Rolling Stone and was co-produced by Oli.

 

"Rockberger mixes improvisatory flare and genuinely catchy tunes, bucking the trend set by lesser radio-friendly jazz influenced singers"

- Time Out  

 

"...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..."
