  • Acoustic Demos

    Oliver started writing songs on the acoustic guitar around 2009, and in 2021 he recorded some of them for a demo album. You can also listen on Spotify!


  • Electronic Experiments

    Sometimes I make electronic music to experiment with arrangements and structures. The lyrics are often an afterthought, but they occasionally form into something meaningful.


  • Highland Kites

    I worked with Highland Kites in 2015 to record backing vocals on the tracks β€œFreckles” and β€œLet Me Run”. I was also in a music video with them.


  • Lucky Cricket

    Between 2008 and 2010, Forest and Oliver wrote and played together as a band. They performed at City Lights Cafe in Sylva, NC every Wednesday for a while, but they mostly just entertained our friends, our families, and themselves. Before Oliver left for college and moved across the country, they recorded some of the music they had written in high school.

  • Solo Piano

    I’ve been writing music on the piano since 2006, when I started taking lessons in middle school. In college, I worked with my piano instructor to record some of my early songs.
