"Sir" Oliver Mally has restlessly earned his singer/songwriter skills for quite some time now. Without any doubt he comes from the blues, but has crossed the genre borders quite sometime ago, may it be with his band, the tBluesDistillery, as part of a trio, a duo or,like now, on his own. Mally does not just play music, he lives it.
It's this authenticity which makes all his different projects possible. It can't be taken for granted that the matured guitarist and striking singer Mally with his raspy voice gets along so perfectly well with the songwriter Mally. Music history has proved that great composer are not always great interpreters of their own songs and vice versa. But "Sir" Oliver Mally delivers it all. No gadgets, no effects; just truly hand made music, intimate, full of atmosphere and crystal-clear. No matter if it's down-to-earth-blues (See Me In The Morning), melodious singer-songwriter folk (Butterfly Girl), slow ballads (You took Me By Surprise) or the classical outlaw story of Billy the Kid, "Sir" Oliver Mally cites colleagues such as Steve Earie, Gordon Lightfoot or Townes VanZandt in a subtle way and still remains himself. Only some extras like a little percussion here and a little piano there sweeten up the wide range of genres. But not for the sake of the sweetness,but "for the sake of the song".
