Oliver Tree is an artist who gained prominence for his unique blend of alternative pop, hip-hop, and electronic music. Born as Oliver Tree Nickell in Santa Cruz, California, he has made a significant impact in the music industry. His style is distinctive not only in terms of his music but also through his persona and visual aesthetic.
Tree’s rise to fame began with his breakout single “When I’m Down” in 2016, which was followed by other popular tracks like “Alien Boy,” “Hurt,” and “Life Goes On.” He’s recognized for his bowl haircut, which has become a trademark look, and his quirky, high-energy music videos.
Apart from music, Oliver Tree is also known for his bold fashion choices and his willingness to experiment with different artistic mediums. He often incorporates elements of humour and absurdity into his music and public image.
In 2020, Tree announced his retirement from music, marking the end of his career with the release of his debut album, “Ugly Is Beautiful.” However, it’s important to note that such announcements or public stunts may sometimes be a part of his persona, so it’s advisable to stay updated with recent news or releases post-2022 to confirm any changes in his career status.
ALONE IN A CROWD includes recent new single ‘Bounce’, joined by an official music video – written, produced, and directed by Oliver – which is streaming now on YouTube. The album also includes 2022’s UK #3 single, ‘Miss You’ – a collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Robin Schulz, which has already amassed over 600M global streams. Recently certified 2x Platinum in Australia as well as Platinum in both the UK and Canada, the track is accompanied by a typically quirky, Oliver Tree-directed official music video.
