"Cinematic, orchestral pop is a phrase not used frequently by bands to describe their sound, yet for The Ollie West Band this fits perfectly. Formed in 2014 by singer, songwriter and pianist Ollie West, this Manchester based ensemble are creating unique music that transcends genre and the generic ideas of the pop band. With influences as far spread as Elbow and Billy Joel to the Cinematic Orchestra to Claude Debussy, the band’s instantly recognisable sound has been praised by the likes of Neil McCormick and Dean Friedman.

Following the release of their singles "Home" and "The Ballad of Richard and Sophie", the band announced the release of their debut album "Time Stood Still" on April 26th. To celebrate the release, they hit the road for a massive 15 date UK tour in June, arriving at Wessex Arts Centre on Tuesday 18th June with their 8 piece line up. This is a unique night of great original music not to miss, get your tickets now!"
