INTERVIEW: Oliver Twisted

How would you classify your music?  

Really never classified my songwriting  as one sound or genre. A new genre maybe on its way. But obviously there are influences of Hip Hop.

Who are some of your top 5 musical influences? 

David Bowie, U2, Stone Temple Pilots, Janes Addiction & Biggie Smalls.

What do you want fans to take from your music?

Connect with me through my real life stories. Embrace the struggles we’ve all been through. I want my fans to know they are not alone PERIOD!!!

How’s the music scene in your locale? 

At one point it was booming. Too many cover bands and not enough support for local music.

What is the best concert you have been to?

Stone Temple Pilots Special Invite Only Intimate Show -2000 Irving Plaza New York City.

What do you like most about playing live? 

My Fans!!! Connecting and feeling our energy as One.

Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?

Yes, WRATH OF A WINNER! I’m grateful to be alive! I was in a bad place, stuck in hell. I overcame the obstacles through perseverance, adversity and strength!!!

How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?

Leaving my drums behind. I decided to pick up a guitar, sing and write songs not even knowing one note, still today. One year later I’m here with you, interviewing and my first single is just recently out… as a singer, guitar player, songwriter and producer will be releasing worldwide this Halloween. SPEECHLESS!!!

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be? 

David Bowie.
