Ollie Bell

20 years old and hailing from Ballygall – Ollie Bell has been cutting his teeth in R’n’B circles around Ballymun and Finglas from a staggeringly young age. Revelling in taking the tropes we associate with “singer-songwriters” and turning them entirely on their head – Bell cites influences as divergent as Amy Winehouse and Nikola Tesla as being crucial in arriving at his sensual sound.

Having blown us away at Body&Soul 2016, he has since gone on captivate audiences the length of the country. With a slew of new material scheduled for 2017, this may well be your last chance to catch Mr.Bell in the flesh before he goes stratospheric.
