Oliver Perry (Joanne Shaw Taylor)
Oliver is a UK based session drummer from the north of England. Having spent much of his early life honing his skills behind the kit, he spent his teen years extensively gigging round the UK playing in bands with a range of styles from Pop Punk to Rhythm and Blues.
After studying up to the age of 21 and taking influence from drummers and bands across the board, his style is varied but sits with power inspired by John Bonham and versatility taken from anywhere it could be found.
He is best known for his current work as drummer and backing vocalist for Blues Rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor, who is carving a path through the music industry with her breathtaking guitar playing and incredible vocals. After 18 months of intense touring behind her album The Dirty Truth, 2016 is set to be bigger and better. With both headlining and support tours across the USA and appearances at multiple major UK festivals, her popularity is undeniable.
The year includes joining Wilko Johnson across the UK as his special guest and again with Glenn Hughes throughout his North American Tour.
