28-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 vocals 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'; over 2,500,000 streams as an artist and even more as a songwriter. 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 the likes of Jack Johnson and Damien Rice and taking inspiration from artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Ben Howard at the beginning of his career, Ollie found his way home into the UK Singer-Songwriter scene. With folk/ acoustic routes, contemporary production and a talent for storytelling - Ollie brings a fresh sound into the Singer-Songwriter scene..
