This life isn’t working out for me, so I try to find a remedy” - Olly E ‘For You’ from EP ‘Such is Life’ (2019)
Olly E is a modern rock solo artist and songwriter from Leicestershire, UK. Influenced by Linkin Park, Muse and Pendulum.
As an outsider, missing a sense of belonging has fuelled a fire within Olly E as is reflected in lyrics, when thoughts become words on the page. Finding socialising a struggle; instead seeking solace in songwriting, the only thing he has ever dreamed of is becoming a successful musician, believing that this is where he’ll find a place to finally fit in. As a result, he aims to give hope through music to those who feel lost or alone, providing a haven where everyone can belong. Spending years studying music and performing live, there has never been a better time for Olly E to climb the ascent towards reaching his dreams and he’s willing to do almost anything to get there.
Olly E’s first EP ‘1’ was released in 2016 followed by many appearances in local Leicester venues. During this time, he released many self-produced singles, videos and online content whilst slowly building a following.
His latest release, Such is Life (August 2019) can be described as ‘pop punk VS techno’ and is written around personal struggles with depression, heartache and loneliness. The third track ‘For You’, acts as a call-out to those struggling in life in which Olly E hopes can bring light out of a dark situation for whoever is listening.
