Outside In

About Outside In:

A blend of progressive elements, pop-sensibilities & psychedelic undertones. Outside In are: Mikey Brown – Jonnie Barnard – Adam Tobeck – Adam Willis.

‘Outside In’ combines stylistic aspects of Tool, Radiohead, Pain of Salvation, Yes, Genesis, Muse, all the while without sounding like any one of these groups. There are some mellower, ballady moments where Browns lyrics shine and his rich tone warms you all over before abruptly hurling you upward into space, spinning all the way with his wails and falsetto chasing you.

Passages of heavily effected guitar swirls overhead thick grooves between bass and drums. Rich layers of trippy synthesizers in changing time signatures showcase the band’s musical aptitude and unique sound. There is something in this music for everyone, music in this nothing, for all. Take the trip.

Reviews

“As a group they are well-travelled through strange and wonderful musical places and they are extremely inviting through their display of visuals that provoke an intoxicating blend of distress and comfort.”

Oslo Brown

About Oslo Brown:

Oslo Brown is a pop trio from Auckland. Individually, they come from a variety of musical backgrounds.

The lead vocalist and ukulele bass player is Charlie. She is a classically trained pianist, and this expertise has loaned itself to her proficiency on the keyboard and bass. Charlie’s musical background has mostly been in orchestras, jazz and concert bands.

The acoustic guitarist, Olivia whose lyrics and melodies so often come from the heart and her life experiences, is also from a classically trained piano background. She has been a member of rock bands in and around Auckland, and, as well, spent over a year in Canada where she sang and played in an acoustic duo. Her ability on the acoustic guitar is intriguing to listen to. Olivia also ‘drives’ the Stomp box, and is a back-up vocalist.

Carl is the lead guitarist and his musical roots lie in the alternative rock genre. He has been in bands of this style as lead guitarist, song and lyric writer. The music from these projects has ranged from soft acoustic pieces to progressive riff driven rock songs and most things in between. Carl has also written music to accompany poetry and rap and enjoys experimenting with finding the right tones and effects no matter what genre.

While individually they come from diverse musical backgrounds, collectively, they are Oslo Brown. The trio whose songs are heartfelt; whose live performances are engaging; and a trio whose harmonies blend beautifully. Their sound is unique. Their harmonies are polished. Their lyrics are heartfelt. Their stage presence is commanding. When you attend one of their live performances, you will indeed understand why their popularity is gaining momentum. These performances are testament to the time and effort they devote to their songs. Join Oslo Brown on their unique musical journey.

THOMAS OLIVER is internationally recognised as one of the leading players of the Weissenborn lap-steel guitar and a multi-talented guitarist, song writer and singer.

In 2013 Oliver released the first full-length, all instrumental, all Weissenborn album, titled “Beneath The Weissenborn”. The album debuted at #6 in the NZ charts, received 5* reviews and sold out shows across the nation.

His previous band, The Thomas Oliver Band, released their debut LP in 2011 to critical acclaim, debuting at #12 in the New Zealand, #1 in the iTunes Blues Charts in NZ and Australia and won Best New Zealand Blues and Roots album.
