1865 is a good venue for sound and atmosphere in my many visits there and this evening was another great night. Kudos too for having alcohol free beer on tap. I'd seen Oli's previous band Raveneye so was already a fan of the man and this new venture sees him back and if possible better than ever. Powerful, atmospheric but with a light touch when needed. These new songs and band were amazing and the fact that they were enjoying themselves was great to see and infectious for the audience. A great show from a great band with great songs and the opportunity to see this in a smaller venue is an "I was there" moment I will treasure amongst all the memories i have in my 50th year of gig going. See Oli now on this more intimate tour as I expect its only going to be bigger venues in future which will be well earned and I will be there.

Brilliant performance by Oli and crew. The venue was quite small, basically a cellar bar, and the stage was an alcove. Which meant a really close and intimate concert. Great night.

About Oli Brown

OLI BROWN

It’s a long climb from the schoolyards of Norwich, UK, to the top table of the British Blues scene, but Oli Brown has scaled it in just four years.
The pivotal moment came at 15, when he was invited to the US as the guest of Blinddog Smokin’, this morphed into a mentoring scheme, with Oli sharing bills with Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal. “Before that, I didn’t care what the music was, I just wanted to solo,” he admits. “they taught me many things about Blues music, about stagecraft, about walking tall, speaking to the audience PLUS they made me start singing!” Oli also cites the wisdom imparted by legends including John Mayall, Walter Trout and Robben Ford.
Fast-forward to 2008 and Ruf Records witnessed an explosive UK gig and signed Oli on the spot. Open Road was released that same year.
Blues Matters! voted Open Road the #2 album of 2008, and Classic Rock declaring the singer had “the Blues under his fingernails like few of his peers”.
The Oli Brown Band were the only British act selected for 2008’s International Blues Convention in Memphis, and Oli was invited by John Fry of Ardent Studios to record a live session… which scored 1.3 million hits in under a month.
In 2010 Oli caught the ear of legendary British producer Mike Vernon, veteran of such benchmarks as 1966’s Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton. He was lured out of semi-retirement to helm second album, Heads I Win Tails You Lose. On its release in April 2010 Mojo dubbed Oli “the hottest young pistol in British blues”, Uncut praising “a British bluesman to rival Trucks and Bonamassa”, Classic Rock and Mojo voted Heads I Win Tails You Lose their #3 and #4 blues album of the year.
The 2010 British Blues Awards, Oli won the Best Male Vocalist and the Best Young Artist categories.
In 2011 Oli toured Worldwide – scoring another haul of trophies at the British Blues Awards (Best Band and Best Album). The year concluded playing 25 gigs with John Mayall and Mayall asking him to be his lead guitarist for the Indonesian Blues Festival!
January 2012 Cleopatra Records, Los Angeles, contacted Oli to record a track on a Black Keys tribute album, which included many other artists like, Iggy Pop, Ginger Baker and Walter Trout. The album was released in July 2012.
May 2012 saw the release of Oli’s third album, Here I Am, and a traunch of fantastic reviews followed. Here I Am had Brian Lucey, fresh from The Black Keys’ El Camino album, doing the final mastering. Blues Matters voted Here I Am the # 2 album of the 2012
September 2012 and in the British Blues Awards Oli wins the Best Young Artist category and was runner up as Best Guitarist.
Oli is now back on the road to support the release of Here I Am and is preparing to release a live CD and DVD during 2013.
For this 23-year-old, music isn’t just a job, an easy pay-cheque or a shot at cheap celebrity: it is his passion and raison-d’être.
“I picked the wrong genre of music to be a celebrity,” Oli laughs. “I just want to be a credible musician.”
