James Ollier - Nomad Frays

It’s hard to write about James Ollier without sounding like a personals ad: he’s young, likes to travel, and has a clear point of view; he has a delicate touch on the acoustic guitar. His Somerset lilt, his Bon Iver meets James Blunt style of melody, and the inarguably genuine sense of vocal delivery might just make a fan out of you.

It’s a folk-inspired foundation: both the primacy of the acoustic guitar, and the sense of space, contribute to a thematic freedom that allows us a vision of the heart within.

We are the nomad frays
caught between life and change
we live for the minute, and then we relive it
and get lost inside
— James Ollier

With an inspired sense of wisdom, James Ollier makes a broad statement about how small we can be when we stand alone.
