Oliver Francis
Oliver Francis
At the beginning of 2017, self made underground legend Oliver Francis released perhaps his most well known and tantalizing body of work. While the first official Oliver Francis album Chlorine would go on to meet raving reviews and chatter from the guerrilla music purists to the mainstream players of hip-hop, Francis was only beginning his takeover of the music industry.

“I can’t remember when it started, it seems like it’s all I’ve ever known,” Francis explained when thinking back to a point in time where music became his desire in life. “It seems it’s been my dream since day one. I can’t really pinpoint like an exact moment, but you know there were always things that I would watch like Green Day and I always aspired to be like those guys (and) like my role models. I have a drawing that I did with crayons when I was… I don’t know how fucking old with a guy on stage with a guitar. It’s all I’ve ever known honestly.”
Ryan Oakes
Not many people can say they pulled in over fifty million Spotify streams independently, but Ryan Oakes can. For six years now he has been working towards his dream of being a musician and the hard work finally seems to be paying off. This year alone he headlined his own 22 city nation wide tour and is only gaining more steam. 450,000 monthly listeners are now tuned in to his Spotify accumulating well over two million streams every month. His following has quickly doubled this year and he plans on going full speed ahead in 2019 to keep the momentum. With an overseas tour in the works and many more nation wide tours to be put under his belt, theres no telling just how far he may go if he keeps up the hard work and passion for his craft.
