simplyollie From Stockton Releases His Latest Album “O”

Stocktons’ very own simplyollie recently released his new album “O” and the response has been insane. simplyollie has been one of the most loved rising stars in the christian hip-hop community lately and rightfully so. His style is perfect for a day at the beach or just vibing out in your room. The dope thing about this project is that it is fully engineered by simplyollie and that is something he’s never done. He is such a unique artist that when asked who his inspirations were, he said, “My biggest (sonic) inspirations are a wide variety of styles and artists such as Xxxtentacion, Dance Gavin Dance, Juice Wrld, and mostly underground SoundCloud with some of my earliest inspirations being 2010s contemporary Christian music and classic rock.” The entire album is about 20 minutes in listening time and it’s a very cohesive body of work. Blood Donor, and Dream Girl are the highest growing records at the moment but overall the album is full of bangers with honorable mentions such as Plans to Prosper and Self Inventory.

We asked him what motivates him and he said, “a constant hope in God that he’s changing the world, that he is making things better, one life at a time. Whatever way my music impacts and fulfills that hope is also a continual motivation, hearing about how my music has influenced others positively shows me there’s something moving through it, that God is using it. Not one big victory, but many many small ones.” He would someday love to work with reach records artist Hulvey and says that he really sees him as an authentic individual who’s after Gods own heart, and let’s Jesus do the work through him.

simplyollie says that this album is a very special piece of work and reason being is because, “the quickness it was delivered, 5 out of the 8 songs were recorded over a span of 3 days. In the time of it I felt the heavy need to make music, and my favorite place to encounter God has been in my dreams so I wanted this to sound like my dreams. I mixed and mastered this as well, having it meet my ear precisely to how I wanted it. Overall I enjoyed the fluidity of the production: when music comes effortlessly I know it’s from God alone. It’s also what I feel my best work to date, showcasing more styles I haven’t done before. For my 3rd project in 10 months of CHH-the quality and growth Ive seen in myself has also tied in with some of that motivation.
