Bio

Oliver Northam is a folk, blues, and pop-inspired artist with the musical aesthetic of a bygone era. His strong, narrative-driven lyrics reveal a vulnerable past of troubled relationships, tales of love and sentiments of loss. Performing as a solo artist and frontman of his 6-piece band, The Elsewheres, Oliver has developed an enthralling blend of piano and guitar-based originals that have been likened to Passenger, Bob Dylan and Tom Waites. Indeed, it has been said that his style “contemporises country and folk with a baritone maturity akin to Marlon Williams and Jeff Tweedy” - Beat Magazine.

I wanted this song to take off just that little bit more in the chorus but overall, this is quite lovely and some good rollicking folk. Those horn parts add a new element to it too
