Oli Brown’s name is synonymous with the “young blues” movement. Winner of the British Blues Awards for male vocalist, best album, best band and best young artist, he has released three albums through Ruf Records to critical acclaim.
The list of who Oli Brown has performed with is like a who’s who of the blues world – Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, Anders Osborne and Taj Mahal, to name but a few.
The live shows are breathtaking, Classic Rock Magazine names him as “One of the best and brightest guitar heroes performing in the world today”.
As Oli Brown Band blues gigs are becoming increasingly rare while Oli develops his new band RavenEye, we are thrilled to have the chance to welcome him to Band on the Wall. Don’t miss, blues fans!
Oli brings a freshness and excitement to every performance and is at the forefront of the UK’s new Blues movement.” – Planet Rock Radio
“The hottest young pistol in British Blues” – Mojo
