Brother Oliver is a South Carolina-based musical project formed by two brothers, Andrew & Stephen Oliver. The brothers deliver high-energy performances through the lens of a folk-rock / psych-rock aesthetic—a genre they've officially coined as "psychedelic folk-rock." The band's explorative approach to music strikes a chord with any audience and has rapidly gained recognition in the Southeast and abroad.
The project was started in 2011 in the small town of Greenville, Michigan — where the brothers were born and raised. Just two years later, they moved to Greenville, South Carolina as a result of 20-year-old angst and longings for change. Upon arrival, Andrew (the eldest of the two) opened a small recording studio where they would write and record their first record, Stubborn Fool, in 2013. Brother Oliver has since released their self-titled full-length record, Brother Oliver, which has been regarded as highly innovative in the world of folk rock music.
