Oli Silk began writing and recording music as part of jazz funk duo ‘Sugar and Silk’ in the late 1990’s. Fast forward a decade, and Oli now has five CD’s to his name.
Oli remains one of the most dynamic and energetic keyboardists in the genre. His unique mix of jazzy instrumentals, funky vocal cuts and downright dirty ol’ school keytar and vocoder, give his live shows that real wow factor! Oli is the UK go-to guy for some of the genre’s biggest artists such as Gerald Albright, Chuck Loeb, Boney James, Dave Koz, Euge Groove, and Peter White.
When off stage, Oli is a sought-after smooth jazz producer, composer, and mix engineer whose recent clients include keyboardists Nicholas Cole and Tim Watson, and saxophonist Michael J. Thomas. Oli has also composed music for television (Oprah Winfrey, MTV, Miami Ink) and high-end smartphone applications (Zynga Games).
Oli Silk will perform at the Dauphin County Jazz & Wine Festival on Sunday, September 9, at Fort Hunter Park.
