Oliver Cherer has previously issued records as part of 90s big beat duo Cooler vying with the likes of Bentley Rhythm Ace and Chemical Brothers to make dance music in the late 90s.
In 2000 he side-stepped into making quiet, beatless music for reflection and contemplation, and working as Dollboy he released increasingly acoustic records. Since then his sound has morphed and flowed from still electronic water music to electric psychedelic wig-out, but always with unabashed English sensibility and clear love of melody. Reviews often name check Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayres and Eno.
Last year’s “Sir Ollife Leigh And Other Ghosts” saw Oliver’s debut under his own name and further development of a gothic, folky, radiophonic sound producing an album already talked about as a classic and which was a favourite of Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and others on BBC 6Music.
