26-year-old Ollie Wade has never been shy of showing his vulnerable side within his songwriting. His honest and carefully crafted lyrics, paired with the raw emotion in his vocal help tell the story of Ollie's journey into adulthood. From young love lost and found to the sensitive subject of mental health, Ollie strives to connect with his audience on a personal level.
Born in Winchester, Hampshire Ollie started his career on YouTube by posting acoustic folk-pop covers of popular songs alongside making vlogs. It wasn't long before Ollie began to earn a following online and at the age of 17, he released his first single, 'Free' into the world, which was written as a tribute and legacy to his late brother, Ben.
He has since gone on to write and release a catalogue of material including a UK iTunes Top 10 debut EP, 'Falling'; a Billboard featured co-write and over 1,000,000 streams as a songwriter/artist. Having toured at a national level, Ollie Wade has headlined venues such as London's 'The Garage'; played at 'CarFest'; supported the likes of Tom Odell, Andy Burrows, KT Tunstall and The Feeling and has even played an intimate show for The Duchess, Kate Middleton.
Growing up to likes of Jack Johnson and Damien Rice and taking inspiration from artists such as Ed Sheeran and Ben Howard, Ollie found his way home into the UK Singer-Songwriter scene. 2020 has seen Ollie reconnect with his acoustic folk-pop side and this year has proved to be his most successful yet.
