First Aid at work
Oli achieved grade 8 classical singing, a drum kit diploma and had studied jazz/classical piano and the violin before leaving school, while also recording local bands in demo studios and at his parents’ house.
While studying Sound Recording and Music at the University of Surrey (Tonmeister course), Oli spent his placement year as the assistant sound engineer for Peter Gabriel at Real World Studios. He returned to Real World when he graduated in 2014 as one of two in-house engineers and now records/mixes music every day with amazing musicians from around the world, both at Real World and other studios.
