Ollie Childs


How does a young, strapping British musician end up making music and living all over the East Coast of America? If you’re Ollie Childs, you simply follow your heart, the music and wherever the wind may take you. Ollie first picked-up a guitar at age 19 on his lunch break while working as a motorcycle mechanic. A coworker had brought the instrument to the shop and let him have a go. Quickly, Ollie was hooked, and has been writing and composing music ever since. Read more on Last.fm
How does a young, strapping British musician end up making music and living all over the East Coast of America? If you’re Ollie Childs, you simply follow your heart, the music and wherever the wind may take you. Ollie first picked-up a guitar at age 19 on his lunch break while working as a motorcycle mechanic. A coworker had brought the instrument to the shop and let him have a go. Quickly, Ollie was hooked, and has been writing and composing music ever since. It’s nearly impossible to hear Ollie Childs’ voice without swooning. His rich, natural tone has a strength and innate sincerity that easily conveys his stories of love, heartache and escape.

The music is pure pop with a soft, gentle touch. Think if the Zombies were fronted by David Gray, or if Crosby, Stills, Nash had added a British fourth member instead of a Canadian. Childs finds most of his inspiration from great singer/songwriters like Cat Stevens, Neil Finn and Michael Stipe. His music echoes of the same integrity, vulnerability, poeticism and tell-it-like-it-is sensibility as these artists, but the singularity of his voice, his personal style and his disarming sense of humor, create a sound that’s all his own. “What I love about music,” Ollie says, “is it’s ability to expose the beauty and lightness of human emotion from underneath even the darkest of experiences.” Born and raised outside of London, the 34 year-old singer-songwriter now spends his time between NYC and Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. He recently completed a U.K.

and European tour with Ben Taylor. His grandfather, Frank Doel, was a central character in the 1983 film, Charring Cross Road, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
