About

Cutting his teeth on garage bands, piano strings and chamber orchestras, Oliver Richard now fuses bipolar electric guitar with muscular vocals, fat bass loops and tripped out percussion to create a one man wall of sound.

2013 saw completion of The First Take Cover Sessions. These five Youtube videos prove strong enough to secure a 7″ single deal with Grimtale Records (USA); Triggerfish was released November 2013. Oliver went on to contribute two tracks to the label’s 2014 sampler album. His E.P. “White Finger” was released March 2016 on 10″ vinyl and online (Bull On A Leash Records, UK).

In November 2018, Oliver Richard’s second single, Hungry, was released digitally and on 7″ vinyl (BOAL, UK). Shortly after, his song Approach Me Like A Lion was chosen by Dubreq and David-Bowie-producer Tony Visconti as the winner of the global Stylophone 50 songwriting competition.
