Olivier St. Louis is a Washington DC-based artist with Haitian and Cameroon heritage who spent his early years in the UK. With a degree in Bio-science and love for the arts, St. Louis found time to keep his passion for music alive while juggling his day job. On his new release titled “Confliction,” he teams up with longtime collaborator and friend Oddisee, and both deliver a solid piece that touches the soul and keeps the dead nodding.
His work as a recording artist eventually led to his debut release in 2011, ‘The Mr. Saint Louis EP’, released under the moniker Olivier Daysoul and also produced by longtime collaborator, Oddisee.
From here on, Olivier began laying down vocals, collaborating and touring with a wide-range of artists over the following years, including Hudson Mohawke, C2C, Laura Mvula and German rockers, AnnenMayKantereit. After taking a hiatus from feature work, Olivier decided to concentrate on nurturing his own sound. Embracing a newfound love for blues, rock and funk, a series of late night sessions saw him engulfed in new soundscapes, and reverting back to his birth name, Olivier St.Louis. This saw him release two critically-acclaimed EPs with Berlin-based label, Jakarta, and the release of ‘The Serious EP’ with Bibio on Warp Records.
Following world tours with many of the afore-mentioned, in 2020 Olivier has been working on all-new material for Worldwide Award-winning London label, First Word Records.
