It's-a me, Olly Farrell, a multi-instrumentalist and composer whose work is now predominantly in the live arena but I pick up commercial commissions too.
I studied Music and Sound Production for the Moving Image at Leeds College of Music under Brian Morrell and Neil Myers. My colleague and housemate Dan Marsh and I ran “MF Audio” composing soundtracks for ads and things from our home studio until I decided to up sticks back to my homeland north of the wall in Edinburgh.
I set myself up in the capital’s unglamorous West End with a shiny new Nord Stage piano in pursuit of fresh musical opportunities. I joined The Micro Band and featured on the debut record “People People”.
I’m the kurrent keyboardist in Bombskare, Scotland’s “ska juggernaut”. Midge Ure likes us, if that means anything to you. It means nothing to me, oh, Vienna. Look out for Bombskare's upcoming third record “A Million Ways to Die”.
I have a passion project called The Apes of Genius, which is ostensibly just me and my laptop but will evolve as long as the human race does to incorporate other apes playing my tunes live. The Apes first record “Piggybacking on the Shoulders of Giants” features, amongst others, Morgan Freeman so what’s not to like? Probably can’t get him for the live shows though.
