Pop Shop UK listens to Ollyi.on’s latest single Joy!
The new single by UK based musician and songwriter Ollyi.on is called Joy!, which celebrates this positive and hard-won emotional state.
Ollyi.on is a singer/songwriter and producer based in Farnborough, Hants in the U.K who plays the flute, saxophone, keyboards, bass, guitar, drums, violin, trumpet and harmonica.
As a multi-instrumentalist, it is not surprising that jazz has inspired his prolific songwriting to date. Ollyi.on started jamming with friends from an early age and has always been excited by music.
On living in Switzerland in 2013, Ollyi.on says “I was inspired by the breath-taking sceneries and sheer beauty of the cities which gave me fresh inspiration to write and make new music”.
Ollyi.on initially began recording with the producer Dom Tosh of Relief Studio in Switzerland. He then moved to London to collaborate with Andy Whitmore (Peter Andre, Atomic Kitten, Michele Gayle, Elton John, Boy George, Eternal) at Greystoke Studios in Ealing, London.
With songs focusing on encouragement and positivity, Ollyi.on says “I believe there is some mileage in singing these types of songs today and encouraging people to have a positive outlook to life regardless of the situation”.
Ollyi.on’s latest single is entitled Joy! and was engineered by Andy Hughes, who learned his trade under legendary producer Trevor Horn.
The single was mastered by Pete Craigie who has worked with artists including Kylie Minogue, Take That and Blue.
Joy! is remixed by world famous Hed Kandi, Ministry of Sound and Leona Lewis’ DJ, Mikey Gallagher)
