BIO

London-born keyboardist Oli Silk is the UK’s Smooth Jazz Ambassador! 

One of the most dynamic and energetic keyboardists in the genre; a unique mix of jazzy instrumentals, funky vocal cuts and down right old skool keytar and vocoder give his live shows that real wow factor and have earned him a devoted fan-base worldwide!

 

He began writing and recording music as part of jazz funk duo ‘Sugar and Silk’ in the late 1990’s. The pair released 2 albums to much European acclaim and this grabbed the attention of Trippin’N’Rhythm Records to whom Oli has been signed with ever since. He has produced 7 solo hit albums in that time, with his songs enjoying huge success on radio in the USA over the last 15 years. Highlights include:

- Chill Or Be Chilled (2008/2009) - Billboard top 3 and one of the most long charting songs in Billboard Smooth Jazz history with a combined main/recurrent chart tally of 54 weeks!

- At Your Service (2013) - Oli’s first Billboard #1 song (2013)

- New Bounce (2020) - Three weeks at Billboard #1 for this memorable tune, featuring Vincent Ingala

- Hurry Up And Wait - Another Billboard #1, also Billboard #7 song of the year 2021

- Out To Lunch - 3 Billboard #1’s in a row, making Oli one of only a handful of Smooth Jazz artists EVER to achieve this feat.

 

Oli has toured his music extensively across the globe, from Mozambique to Australia, Spain to Dubai, Lithuania to LA. You can also regularly find Oli as a featured artist on the prestigious Dave Koz Cruise. Oli’s skills as a sideman keys player have made him the UK go-to guy for some of the genre’s biggest artists including Gerald Albright, Chuck Loeb, Brian Culbertson, Boney James, Dave Koz, Pieces of a Dream, Euge Groove, Paul Brown and Peter White. Also as a pop music sideman for superstar Matt Goss, and supporting legendary artist Barry Manilow. His credentials as a musical director are also far reaching, most notably for 4 years at the Dubai International Jazz Festival - overseeing some 30+ artists on the Jazz Garden Stage.

 

When off stage Oli is also a sought-after smooth jazz producer, having crafted multiple Smooth Jazz Billboard hits for fellow artists over the years.
