ABOUT BROTHER OLIVER
Brother Oliver is a South Carolina-based musical project formed by two brothers, Andrew & Stephen Oliver. The brothers deliver high-energy performances through the lens of a folk-rock / psych-rock aesthetic—a genre they've officially coined as "psychedelic folk-rock." Their explorative approach to music strikes a chord with any audience and has gained recognition in the Southeast and abroad—landing them on bills alongside the Steve Miller Band, Father John Misty, Drake Bell, Old Sea Brigade, Matthew Logan Vasquez, SUSTO and more.
The project was started in 2011 in the small town of Greenville, Michigan — where the brothers were born and raised. Just two years later, they moved to Greenville, South Carolina as a result of 20-year-old angst and longings for change. Upon arrival, Andrew (the eldest of the two) opened a small recording studio where they would write and record their first album, Stubborn Fool, in 2013. Brother Oliver has since released their self-titled full-length album, Brother Oliver, which has been regarded as highly innovative in the world of folk rock music—gaining the attention of Huffington Post, PBS, PopMatters, AXS, and more.
