Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Daughter, Bears Den and Novo Amor, Ollie Dixon is now performing as a band and joined forces with co-writer Lee Croad. The music he is creating is reverb-soaked atmospherics and warm-delayed acoustics, which blends indie acoustic folk and ambient-rock. Mixing these two genres together have seen them set themselves apart from the norm, creating a very unique, distinct sound.
2022 has seen singles from the EP ‘Islands’, ‘St Agnes’ and ‘Harbour’ featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Folk and New Music Friday Editorial playlists, with Ollie successfully securing his place on the UK live and festival circuit performing across multiple UK festivals. These include ‘Between the Trees Festival’, ‘Oceanfest’ and ‘Spring Classic’.
‘Ollie Dixon’s is musical escapism in its purest form. Akin to the likes of Ben Howard, his sea-washed roots play a pivotal part in his melancholy yet atmospheric and soul-bearing storytelling. Without a doubt, one of the South-West’s stand out artists of 2022’ – Daniel Pascoe – BBC Music Introducing in the South West
