"Writing and recording my thoughts from my living room - Hoping to share these with the lovers, the lost, and the broken-hearted."
Bringing something different to folk music with his distinctive warming vocal tone over heart-felt Beatle-esque lyrics, Ollie Bond is taking the UK folk scene by storm. With his music sounding like a blend of Passenger, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bon Iver & The Lumineers, Ollie writes about various situations that we all find ourselves in and can relate to: including heartbreak, isolation and love.
In 2018, Ollie supported Ronan Keating, The Neville Staple Band, Hazel O'Connor & Tony Christie on the main stage at Godiva Festival, at the time the largest free festival in the UK. Ollie returned to the festival in 2019 to headline the acoustic stage and play the BBC stage.
Ollie has been lucky enough to reach the finals of national competition ‘OpenMic UK’ at the London O2. He’s also been nominated 4 times for an NMG award including 'Best Acoustic Act' and 'Best Male Artist'.
Ollie had a busy 20/21 releasing a string of singles, receiving praise from various music blogs including Thank Folk For That , BBC Introducing and Mahogany Sessions. 2022 is no different, after moving to Edinburgh, Scotland he has some new songs on the horizon. Want to join the journey?
