Singer-songwriter Oliver Downes blends intricate, percussive piano playing with instantly hummable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.  Packing ‘soaring melodies and sharp wit in equal measure’ (Tone Deaf), his debut album ‘Ultraviolet’ (2016) took a leaf from artists such as Ben Caplan, Kate Bush and Rufus Wainwright to offer a lush fusion of dreamy ballads and instantly familiar chamber pop.  Joined by some of Melbourne’s finest jazz instrumentalists, expect a high-definition musical passage through the darkness into the light.

Oliver will be supported by Pocket Fox who play original alt-pop music with an unexpected line up of instruments.
