Oliver is a professional musician (guitarist) based in Central Lancashire, UK. He graduated with a first-class degree in popular music at Leeds College of Music in 2014. He started playing at a young age, covering a wide range of playing styles as he progressed. As a teenager, he achieved Grade 8 Distinction in both Electric and Classical Guitar.

Listening to and learning to play the music of Yes guitarist Steve Howe enabled Oliver to develop a fluid and natural technique - skills he has applied to his own playing style and repertoire.

Oliver currently plays with various bands and artists at venues throughout the UK. Bands include Winter Springs, a six-piece vocal lead, harmony based, folk/pop singer-songwriter collective and Fragile, UK's leading Yes tribute band featuring Claire Hamill.

During the years he has been playing, studying and working, Oliver has gained valuable experience as a studio musician, session musician, live performer, guitar tutor and engineer/producer.
