Young British drummer Ollie Howell will step outside the jazz comfort zone to play London's famous Troubadour venue, known more for rock, folk and blues, on Wednesday September 28th.

Ollie and his quintet perform music from his debut album 'Sutures and Stitches,' named after a period spent in hospital trying to overcome a brain malformation, as well as the forthcoming album, 'Self-Identity.'

A young Ollie Howell was given his first pair of drum sticks by Radiohead’s Philip Selway and he is now championed by industry guru Quincy Jones as an emerging creative force. Quincy describes him as “an unbelievable drummer. So creative I couldn’t believe it … he really is a 360-degree beautiful young cat.”

Ollie is also the first ever jazz recipient of a Sky Academy Arts Scholarship and his image can be seen emblazened across many of Sky TV's van fleet.

The Troubadour, 263-267 Old Brompton Rd, Earls Court, London SW5 9JA
