In 2016, after studying together at Dawson College, Josh Cunningham (Vocals/Guitar) and Megan Griffin (Vocals/Keyboard) combined their voices to produce rich melodies in their first original compositions.
Drummer Tim Hammond and guitarist Jon d’Ambrosio joined in the summer of 2016, marking the beginning of Oliver Forest. Together they create their sound by complementing the vocal foundation with a solid rhythmic and melodic backline.
Riding on their initial wave of creativity, and after playing together for only four months, the band set up shop in the drummer’s studio for three weeks to record eight original songs, one of which being their first single, titled “Shadows”. Following the release of their first album, the group has performed in and around Montreal, Toronto and Quebec City.
The band is currently working on their next EP, titled ‘Did You Really Have to Find Out’, with producer Rob Wells (Adam Lambert, Justin Bieber, Marie-Mai, Ariana Grande, Corey hart, Matt Dusk) to be released in 2021 on The DZ Factory Ltd’s new label “The Noise Shack” ..Stay tuned for more news…
