Oliver Sheen is a UK based pianist and vocalist and is available to
book for any wedding, corporate event or private party
in the UK including London, Hampshire,
Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Hertfordshire
and all across south east England.
Born into a musical family, Oliver starts playing
clarinet aged nine in his school's concert band, touring France
and Belgium to much acclaim. Coming to the piano relatively late
(aged 13) he soon forms groups with other young musicians playing
classic swing tracks and pop numbers of the day. As a soloist, gigs
in local restaurants and hotels help to supplement his pocket money
("washing cars always seems too much like hard work!").
In 1982 he enters "Best Young Pop Pianist"
competition, achieving 3rd place at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall,
a feat made all the more impressive when one considers he had only
been playing for two years.
In 1984 Oliver joins local group "National Pastime"
(on bass and vocals) and supports "Kajagoogoo" on their
1984 "Islands Tour". National Pastime also enjoys success
abroad scoring a top twenty hit (10,000 record sales) in Japan as
well as successful tours of Japan and Germany. Apparently you can
still get the records on eBay! By 1986 musical differences split
the band and Oliver returns to what he does best -singing and playing
By 1995 Oliver reputation is such that he secures
coveted residency at London's Ritz Hotel. It is here he hones his
craft to near perfection and entertains a whole host of Royalty,
stars and celebrities including:
The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh
Prince Charles & Camilla
Andrew Lloyd Webber
Tony & Cherie Blair
to name but a few!
Since leaving the Ritz in 2002, Oliver's reputation
has continued to grow performing at events, weddings, parties and
awards ceremonies at venues such as The Savoy, The Dorchester, the
Royal Lancaster, Brocket Hall and Claridges to critical acclaim.
He continues to astound audiences with his feather-like
touch and soulful voice which have become a trademark of his art.
Oliver has one simple rule - if it's a good tune, he'll play it.
In one event he can cover Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Wonder, Joel,
Manilow, The Beatles, Elvis the list goes on. Make no mistake,
however, there's no room for passengers in Oliver's repertoire.
Every tune is a winner.
Now residing in Hampshire Oliver's engagements
take him to all parts of the country where he entertains, astounds
and spreads joy and happiness in equal measures.
