Whether you first discover Oli Rockberger through his work as a singer-songwriter, producer, arranger, keys sideman, or as 1/3rd of acclaimed electronic trio Mister Barrington, you’ll be sure to find a distinctive musical voice running through the rich and varied work he does. Londoner Rockberger, who currently lives in NY, first came to the US to take up a Full Scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music (’99 – ’04). Since then, he has shared stages and studios with musical icons Levon Helm, Steve Gadd, Will Lee and Jackie DeShannon, Grammy winners Randy Brecker, Jesse Harris and John Mayer and jazz luminaries Les McCann and Charlie Hunter. Current projects include performing and recording with Randy Brecker, and bass legend Will Lee, both of whom will be releasing albums this year which feature co-writes and performances by the versatile Rockberger. Other recent highlights include a feature on Chris Dave's “Chris Dave and the Drumhedz Mix Tape” on a track alongside Grammy Winner Robert Glasper, as well as contributing keys to the recent album “Another Life” by master-song craftsman James Maddock with whom he performs and records regularly. Rockberger continues to tour and record with his other main project, the innovative "Mister Barrington" alongside Zach Danziger (drums/production) and Owen Biddle (bass/production). Recent highlights for the group include a feature in Electronic Musician and a TEDx Presentation at Amherst College entitled "Innovative Thinking" (April 13). Meanwhile, Rockberger's latest Singer/Songwriter album "Old Habits" (co-produced with Chris Abell, released March '13), was described by London Jazz as "a monument to be relished in the border territory of jazz and pop". Back in February, the UK's most popular jazz station "Jazz FM" named the record their album of the week, and the track "Queen of Evasion" has since been added to the station's regular rotation. This summer, Rockberger performed at the UK's prestigious "Love Supreme Festival" July 6 on a shared bill alongside Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spaulding, Michael Kiwanuka and Gregory Porter , and will be returning to the UK later this fall to perform at "The London Jazz Festival" ("Pizza Express Jazz Club", Nov 18).
