Fresh injections of soul and indie-tinged vocals, all blended together with a talented band — Oly Sherman is an artist to wrap your ears around. In early 2017, he independently released his first single ‘Push Me Down’, which then resulted to his debut EP Embrace being released just a few months later.
After a string of impressive support shows such as Hein Cooper, Alex the Astronaut and Matthew Young, Sherman continues to win over audiences and new fans, even recently touring with Australian musical royalty The Whitlams.
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.
“Your gentle, versatile and emotional voice is simply captivating. It’ll leave a room silent for sure. This is for anyone who’s a fan of Matt Corby” — Claire Mooney (Triple J)
