About Ollie

Versatile and engaging jazz pianist and vocalist. Whether you want sumptuous background jazz, or fun and lively covers, I’m the guy for you!
Pianist
London

Ollie is an actor, songwriter and award-nominated musical director from South Yorkshire. Having obtained a BA(Hons) in Music and Drama from the University of Manchester, Ollie went on to study at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, graduating with a Distinction from the MA Music Theatre programme. Most recently, Ollie appeared in the internationally acclaimed hit show The Choir of Man as the ‘Pianoman’, and has also been seen in Antic Disposition’s UK Tour of Shakespeare’s Henry V, Sondheim’s Assassins at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and starred alongside Sir Michael Caine in the feature film Is Anybody There?. Ollie’s work as a Musical Director earned him a nomination in the 2019 Great British Pantomime Awards for ‘Musical Achievement’, for his work on Sevenoaks Panto Ltd.’s Dick Whittington. He was recently able to put those skills to good use as Music Captain for The Choir of Man. As a singer, Ollie has sung with some of the country’s most revered choirs (inc. NYCC, CBSO Male Chorus, Cambridge’s St John’s Voices), singing at the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms, and as far afield as Cathedrals in Hong Kong and Singapore. His reputation as a jazz pianist earned him a place in big bands and function bands across Manchester, and his compositions have been performed by ensembles across the country. Ollie is currently working on his debut EP, and using the lockdown to release demos of new material.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I am always happy to stay flexible as far as I can. I understand very well how things can change, but just ask that you give me as much notice as you can.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely, I can offer the perfect playlist for you for free. If you'd like to use my equipment after the final set until the venue closes, I can provide this for an additional £125.

How much time do you need to set up?

I would usually ask for at least 1 to 1.5 hours of time to set up before a set. As soon as my PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere ahead of my first set!

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Of course - provided the piano is in tune and in good condition!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

I'm always happy to take requests into consideration, but do prefer to craft my set lists ahead of time, based on my experience of what works best. However, I am always happy to discuss with you in order to find something that fits exactly what you're looking for!

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Absolutely, I have several keyboards which I can bring, depending on what's appropriate for the set.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If there's a song you'd like which isn't in my set list, there's a good chance I already know it, so do ask! If there's something you'd really like which I don't know, I am more than happy to learn something new, for which there is a small fee of £30 to cover the time it would take to learn and arrange the new song.

I needed a quick backing track and notebash for a song and Ollie got it all done in such a short time and with such a great quality that I definitely would recommend him if you need any tracks done. Not only was it done exactly to my needs, but it just sounds amazing (not one of those tinny or simple backing tracks you can get from other sources). So if you need something you could use for a professional standard, then Ollie definitely is a great option!

Thank you so much for the backing tracks! They were of such good quality considering I gave you no time at all and they are perfect to the cuts I gave! Jared Leathwood
