Oliver Vessey’s concert debut came at a piano recital at the University of Bath in 1974, aged just 4 years old. Winner of many music festivals throughout his childhood, he was awarded a music scholarship to study at the prestigious Wells Cathedral School.

This included various TV appearances, all of the major European festivals, and American tour support for artists such as The Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin. Independent commercial releases under various pseudonyms were championed by the likes of The Wire’s Steve Barker and John Peel.
