Fresh injections of soul, indie style vocals, blended together with his band, makes Oly Sherman an artist to wrap your ears around. In early 2017, Oly independently released his first single ‘Push Me Down’, which then resulted to his debut EP EMBRACE being released a few months after. After a string of impressive support shows such as Hein Cooper, Alex the Astronaut, Thelma Plum, Matthew Young, as well as touring with musical royalty The Whitlams, Oly continues to win over audiences and new fans.
The end of 2018 saw Oly successfully deliver the soulful single ‘Pain Free Melody’ which was an emotional first taste of his upcoming EP. This landed Oly a slew of shows out and around Sydney, including supports for exciting new acts Hein Cooper and Gold Member. He continued the momentum with ‘House on Hill’ in February, and his most recent success with the single ‘Bones’.
Sydney has always been a ‘musical smorgasboard’ for new talent in a variety of genres and Oly’s music is no exception to that tradition. Delving into elements of artists such as Matt Corby, The Paper Kites, and James Blake, Oly’s music reflects the expressive and gentle nature it takes to be a captivating artist.
