Whilst still finishing a degree in Philosophy, Olly Chamberlain quietly began releasing music on YouTube back in 2015. With a naturally seductive vocal and innate musical ability that falls somewhere between Sam Smith and Zac Abel, he found serious viral heat moving his way via his inventive remixes and takes on tracks.
Having now completed his degree, Olly has been busy crafting his debut EP – due for release this June. With his debut release ‘Fear’ drawing immediate acclaim from tastemaker CLASH and FAULT MAGAZINE amongst others and about to confirm a debut Sofar Sounds performance, Olly drops another smooth electronic R&B banger, his talented falsetto dancing over glitchy drums to create something both grooved out and infectious.Growing up in a family of classically trained musicians gave Olly a rich platform to start creating his own music – listing his influences as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon,Tracy Chapman, Elton John and Sam Cooke to John Legend. Now collaborating with Kingsley Brown (Shiftk3y, Jason Derulo) and Debbie Aramide (Pitbull, Leona Lewis), Olly continues to stake his claim as a sure one to watch for the year.
