Ollie Childs

London, England

With a disarming sense of “humour” and a collection of catchy Pop tunes, British singer/songwriter Ollie Childs counts Cat Stevens, R.E.M. and Crowded House among his influences and his melodic writing style reflects that. He recently completed a U.K. and European tour with Ben Taylor (son of Carly Simon and James Taylor) and had his profile raised considerably when his parody of Plain White T’s hit “Hey There Delilah” called “Hey There Facebook” went viral and notched over half a million views.
