It would be easy to get annoyed by British singer/guitarist Oli Brown. Young, can sing a bit, good looking, already has his own signature guitar… Sickening, right?
However we just about forgive him as one listen to Evil Soul (download MP3 here) from Heads I Win, Tails You Lose (2010) will reveal that despite being only 21, Oli Brown already has his blues chops down.
His latest album Heads I Win, Tails You Lose, released on RUF Records earlier this year, is receiving great reviews. As did his 2008 debut record Open Road. You can expect to hear tracks from both records when the Oli Brown Band play some UK dates in October and December 2010.
To be honest, we’re not really annoyed at Oli. Maybe it’s closer to jealousy…
