Personnel

Oliver is a professional musician (guitarist) based in Central Lancashire, UK. He graduated with a first-class degree in popular music at Leeds College of Music in 2014. He started playing at a young age, covering a wide range of playing styles as he progressed. As a teenager, he achieved Grade 8 Distinction in both Electric and Classical Guitar.

Listening to and learning to play the music of Yes guitarist Steve Howe enabled Oliver to develop a fluid and natural technique - skills he has applied to his own playing style and repertoire.

Oliver currently plays with various bands and artists at venues throughout the UK. Bands include Winter Springs, a six-piece vocal lead, harmony based, folk/pop singer-songwriter collective and Fragile, UK's leading Yes tribute band featuring Claire Hamill.

Late 2016, John Holden contacted Oliver to play guitar on his album (Capture Light) remotely from Oliver's home studio. This was and became an album featuring an array of respected musicians in progressive rock. Notably, members and ex-members of progressive rock band Yes (Billy Sherwood, Oliver Wakeman) and the ex-singer of the band The Enid (Joe Payne). This gave Oliver the opportunity to record with musicians he regarded highly, using a variety of instruments on John compositions. Additionally, this lead to Oliver working more with Joe Payne and becoming a member his live band.

During the years he has been playing, studying and working, Oliver has gained valuable experience as a studio musician, session musician, live performer, guitar tutor and engineer/producer.

"Technically superb with great interpretation, wonderful."

"Oliver Day is a guitar virtuoso very much in the mould of Django Reinhardt. Oliver's a very expressive player with a style bordering on the neo-classical. His performance is something of a homage to Steve Howe, a love evidenced by his playing in a Yes tribute act Fragile. He's the type of guitarist who makes it look to easy as he performs Yes' 'To Be Over' and Howe's 'Sketches in the Sun' providing faithful interpretations of hard to play classics. 'Clap' from 'The Yes Album' is handled with great dexterity and is set is rewarded with rapturous applause."

"And I was taken away by his skill and the good flow of feeling in the music. It was magical. I felt mesmerised as his fingers rolled through a network universe of interconnected scales, keys, riffs, licks and melodies. Like a magician with smoke and mirrors waving the wand of a guitar. And the sounds he was making reconstructed themselves as moods as they passed from ear to brain. The ideas passing from writer to live performer to listener."
