“August” marks a new era for Olloway (formerly known as EDM-duo FKYA) as they combine their tight production skills with their diverse musical backgrounds. Transcending genre boundaries, Olloway are quickly carving out their own musical path.
Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Olloway is the collaboration of two high school friends, Paul Kane and Brett Fabian. Olloway’s sound is a combination of their astute production skills and the rock music that inspired their youth, thus creating a unique genre-bending sound that is unlike anything out there.
The two originally met in 2006 in a unique high school class called “Rock and Pop” where they formed a band and performed cover songs. Post-high school, Brett moved to Vancouver to study and began DJ’ing at house parties and Paul moved to New York where he studied music production. In 2014 the two reunited to form their EDM act FKYA. The project quickly gained traction with a Hype Machine #1, a Monstercat release, and official remixes for The Chainsmokers, Krewella and The Naked and Famous. FKYA’s music quickly hit over 10 million streams on Spotify.
However, Brett and Paul felt that as they began to grow as musicians, the FKYA brand no longer fit and, thus, Olloway was born. The duo’s single “August” is the first release off their debut EP, expected this summer.
