I'm Oliver Southgate, a singer/songwriter from Essex, Uk. My songs are a mixture of Rock, Country and Blues, but whatever style I'm playing it is all about the music. The songs are like little philosophy chunks on life as I see it.
I started out writing and recording my songs by myself but have recently started a band so I can play them live.
I play with my band at pubs in Essex, UK
Keith Urban, Richie Sambora, Jack Johnson, Brooks and Dunn, The Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, The Eagles, Shawn Mullins, Eric Clapton, Richie Kotzen
Cole Clark Fat Lady Acoustic Guitar and a Fender El Rio Acoustic guitar with a Marshall AS50 Amp and a Fender guitars with a Marshall Hayes amp. Fender Startocaster, Fender Telecaster, Fender Jazzmaster, HM Strat. I use Cubase to record the songs. Other instruments to look out for are a 12 string guitar, Spanish guitar, Djembe and Darbuka drums and harmonicas.
