Oliver White grew up in Marietta, Oklahoma, a small town just a few miles north of the Oklahoma/Texas state line. Both of his parents taught at the local school, his father was the band director, and his mother was the choir director. The White house was always enriched with all types of music, from Beethoven to Blood, Sweat, & Tears. Oliver''s father eventually retired from teaching to get involved in a music ministry with southern gospel music with his parents in churches all across the south. A little later in life, Oliver played the trumpet in the school band, but it wasn''t long before boredom set in and he picked up his first guitar. After graduating from Marietta High School, he attended college at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma with the intention of becoming a band director like his father. It didn''t take long, however, for Oliver to realize he''d much rather make music than teach it.
A short time later, he and some friends put together a blues band called "Little Brother" with Oliver on lead guitar and lead vocals. He learned the ropes and honed his guitar chops before leaving the band and taking his music in his own direction. And so, "The Oliver White Group" was born. The OWG, as they have come to be known, have covered many styles of music, such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chris Duarte, Buddy Guy, Ian Moore, and Doyle Bramhall II. However, their true strength is their original material. These songs are enriched with a blend of blues, roots, and modern folk that defy the boundaries of any genre. Songs about real life, real problems, real love, and real people.
The OWG is currently promoting their latest album, “Control” which was produced by Don Moore at Soundcrafter Productions and includes guest appearances by Lance Lopez and Wes Jeans. This album consists of 12 incredible tracks of hard-driven Texas Rock, Texas Blues, Folk Rock, and old school soul.
