Oliver & Company
Oliver and Company is an Indie Jam Band from St. Petersburg Florida. The band is on a mission to share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone through music. Their fusion of Indie Rock and Home-Made Strawberry Jam makes for a very catchy and unique sound.
Oliver and Company's sound has been compared to bands such as Arcade Fire, Silversun Pickups, Death Cab for Cutie, Freelance Whales, The National, The Beatles, Foster the People and others, but their main influence is Jesus Christ. Who he is, the way He walked on this earth, the message that He preached, and that hope that he has given us of eternal life.
Oliver and Company was first created by two brothers, Philip and Michael Oliver, when they returned to the US in '10 after spending several years in Trinidad & Tobago as missionary kids. But the band didn't get it's launch until summer of '11 when the Oliver brothers, joined by their good friends Tim Wagner and Adam Rampersaud, met in a cozy old chapel not too far from the sunny Florida beach, and started jamming. Not too long after the band was launched, they were joined by their best mate, Evan Hildreth, as well as siblings Ben and Billie Cumberlidge. And the rest is history.
A few members have come and gone, but their fellowship and jamlyness will never be forgotten.
Oliver and Company has always been about stress free music; just playing the music that is in their minds while God puts the words in their hearts and mouths. It's not about fame or fortune, but it's about loving Jesus and loving people. So I hope you guys are ready for some jams. Bring your own bread.
