About Oliver Tree

His real name is Oliver Tree Nickell. He is an American contemporary artist, self-taught producer, comedian, filmmaker from Santa Cruz, California. The colorful character he created, Oliver Tree, successfully blurs the lines between memes and music with his hilariously quirky attacks on the internet. In music, Oliver Tree juggles indie pop and hip-hop-infused dance music.

According to Rolling Stone, Oliver Tree wins despite defying the usual standards of the entertainment business: he exists in a constant state of eccentric character, behaving like a hooligan with a penchant for crazy videos and swagger jokes, and those scooters. VICE calls Oliver “a music-making meme machine” and Billboard calls him “a hilarious alt-pop prankster.” On this tour, he lets a stripped-down version of himself “warm up” his concerts. Whether he’s singing over pop-punk guitars and handclaps, or rapping over a beat beatOliver’s music finds an emotional resonance in the loneliness of the ages – the loneliness of man.

Being forced to rattle the piano at an early age had completely turned the California beach teenager off from music. He found friends and purpose in scooters frozen competition, but one accident changed the trajectory of his life forever. A chance test of a guitar in a music store and a fascination with David Bowie brought Oliver back into the musical orbit.

In 2010, under the name simply Tree, Oliver began his musical career. He released his debut album “Splitting Branches” on his own, and also tried himself in the roles of the vocalist of the ska group “Irony” and the dubstep producer. At the age of 20, he signed a contract with the London label “R&S Records” and released the short album “Demons”. Radiohead’s Thom Yorke liked Oliver’s version of the band’s song “Karma Police”, which gave the album a lot of attention, but Tree suddenly dropped everything and returned to study music technology at the California Institute of the Arts.

Oliver recorded several songs during his studies, but his first success came when he collaborated with Whethan on the song “When I’m Down”. Tree soon signed a contract with a major player in the music business, Atlantic Records, and success smiled. It is said that in the office of this corporation, Oliver staged a scooter accident and presented his vision to the executives with a bleeding mouth thanks to a capsule of artificial blood. With more opportunities, the creator began to create not only new music, but also crazy video clips that became his calling card, which he himself directs and, of course, acts in them himself, sometimes performing tricks that are not advisable to try at home.

Oliver filmed the music video for the single “Hurt” from his debut album Ugly Is Beautful (2020) in Ukraine. In it, you can see the famous monster scooter, with which the artist was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records. Locally, the tireless workaholic released two more albums, Cowboy Tears (2022) and Alone In a Crowd (2023). The album was produced by Grammy-nominated and hard-hitting producer Robin Schulz, and Oliver co-produced the first single with renowned DJ and producer David Guetta.

Just a few weeks ago in his native California, Oliver Tree finished the world tour of his latest album, which he started in New Zealand last October. By the way, Oliver performed even where only “Metallica” had played so far – in Antarctica. At the end of 2023, together with another star, Diplo, they played on the ultra-luxury cruise ship “The World Voyager”, sailing to this very continent.

Oliver made a documentary about his journey, drawing public attention and raising money for the fight against climate change, which is rapidly contributing to the warming of the oceans and the melting of the ice shelf, which is causing Antarctica to disappear at an alarming rate.

There is much more to this talented artist than meets the eye. Whether it’s his passion for extreme sports, his love of quirky retro fashion, or his dedication to philanthropy, Oliver Tree is a true enigma worth exploring.
