Keyboardist Oli Silk is the UK’s Smooth Jazz Ambassador!
He began writing and recording music as part of jazz funk duo ‘Sugar and Silk’ in the late 1990’s. The pair released 2 albums to much European acclaim and this grabbed the attention of Trippin’N’Rhythm Records’ CEO Les Cutmore who signed Oli on a multi-album deal which first gave us his debut solo CD ‘So Many Ways’ in 2006.
Oli remains one of the most dynamic and energetic keyboardists in the genre, and his unique mix of jazzy instrumentals, funky vocal cuts and down right dirty ol’ school keytar and vocoder, give his live shows that real wow factor and have garnered him a loyal and dedicated US fan-base! Oli has toured his music extensively across the globe, from Mozambique to Australia, Mallorca to Poland, Middle-East to Mid-West. He’s also become a regular face on the annual Dave Koz Cruise, as part of the much-loved band of Brits ‘The UK Collective’.
