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.
“His gentle, versatile and emotional voice is simply captivating. It’ll leave a room silent for sure” – Claire Mooney (Triple J Unearthed).
‘Oly Sherman has a beautiful voice, it has to be said. Long, soaring notes and precise guitar strums …. Sherman entranced the crowd.’ – Mick Radojkovic (The Music)
