Bringing melancholic acoustic music inspired by autumn walks and solo camping in the wilderness to your ears. To be listened to through headphones in the corner of your favourite coffee shop, on road trips through the mountains, or out under the stars.
Ollie Bond is a Coventry based singer/songwriter, playing an upbeat blend of acoustic, pop and folk music with a hint of vintage tape - taking his inspiration from artists such as Passenger, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bon Iver & The Lumineers. On a musical diet of The Beatles & Buddy Holly, Ollie found his roots in Bedford, UK, picking up the guitar at age 10, before moving to Coventry 3 years ago to study at the University of Warwick.
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 then returned to the festival in 2019 to headline their acoustic stage and play their BBC stage. The same year, Ollie was also privileged to be chosen to play for Coventry's portion of Found In Music's International Busking Day. Previously, Ollie has been lucky enough to reach the finals of national music competition ‘OpenMic UK’ at the London O2. Over the last few years, he’s also been nominated three times for an NMG award including 'Best Acoustic Act' and 'Best Male Artist'.
Ollie recently released his singles, ‘Safe With Me’ and ‘When I Went Away’ and 'Emilia', receiving praise from Hot Music Live and Reignland magazines and gaining attention from BBC Introducing in Coventry & Warwickshire and Mahogany Sessions. Ollie released his 6th single 'Ready' on Nov 13th 2020 and that's the story so far.. Want to join the journey? Want to join the journey?
