The MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee, whose music RollingStone Magazine called “its like the Eagles have hired Jack Johnson for some lessons on lightening up” has surprised fans with his stripped down acoustic rock set up and sound across his gigs worldwide. In October last year Vh1 released Oliver Sean’s brand new single & music video ‘New York’ (the preview single from ‘Devil in Blue Jeans) as an exclusive on Vh1 International. The music video went on to be named as a ‘Breaking Video’ and given the ‘Omegrown’ platform on India’s top music channel 9XO. Portugal’s national channel RTP also placed the New York video on steady rotation across their network in Europe, Africa, Latin America and the USA. Oliver’s latest track ‘First Move’ (the second single from his upcoming album ‘Devil in Blue Jeans) is currently making the rounds on radio worldwide. Oliver Sean and his Band have also completed two major headline tours in 2017 – The 9th Annual WOA Music Festival India and the Heartland Tour USA. Oliver Sean has just launched his much anticipated 4th studio album ‘Devil in Blue Jeans’ on 31st August 2017. The music video for the single ‘First Move’ from the album is scheduled for exclusive broadcast on Vh1 Mid September.
MTV Europe Music Awards Nominee (Best Worldwide Act) & Vh1 Top 10 artist Oliver Sean’s music can best be described as ‘Feel Good Acoustic Rock with Soul’. The Singer/Songwriter thrived in the Goa, Dubai and the UK cultures as they acted as the backdrop to his youth, and the inspiration for his music.
His discography with W.O.A. Entertainment began in 1999 with his single ‘There She Is Again’. Oliver Sean’s media clippings have formed a career of their own.
Since his career was launched in his teens, Oliver’s press clippings exceed several hundred features, snippets, and reviews in significant print and broadcast mediums. His brand of music is known for its pop influence with contemporary undertones. His debut album was nominated for ‘International Album of the Year’ by AVMax in 2003/04 along with albums by John Mayer, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Third Eye Blind.
Oliver Sean’s eclectic global music style is the trademark for his brand, and is as exotic as his Portuguese Goan Lineage. A self-taught musician, Oliver plays guitar, bass, keyboards and drums. However, it is his distinctive percussive guitar and powerfully seductive voice, which is his footprint on the music industry. His track record of being a hit songwriter is just one of his many assets defining him as a pillar in the music community. Oliver Sean is a member of the Recording Academy and a Voting Member for the prestigious Grammy Awards.
As a Record Producer and Filmmaker Oliver Sean has composed music for the French Government (Massif Region Tourism Campaign) & Goa Government (Republic Day Parade). He has also composed the soundtrack as a music director for a Bollywood Feature Film and the title track for a Regional Goan Feature Film. The singer songwriter is actively producing music for films and artists around the world and is a successful filmmaker with several music videos that he has Directed and Produced, regularly featured on Vh1 & MTV and also hosts his own nationally distributed radio show The WOAFM99 Radio Show.
Oliver Sean and his International Band are actively touring and performing worldwide and the Singer Songwriter is scheduled to launch his 4th studio album called ‘Devil in Blue Jeans’ on August 31st 2017.
