We recenty caught up with Ollie at the London Jazz festival, and found his very distinct style of playing (and composing) quite uplifiting as he conveys a sense of light and hope in the midst of complexity. Check in with Ollie right here, and stay tuned for the release of his second album, Self Identity, in early 2017.
