OLIVER are UK Singer/Songwriter Twin brothers Kais and Mazin Shammas. Born and raised in London, England, Kais and Mazin discovered from an early age a love for music and pop radio. They became inspired by many singer/songwriters, and, as Kais Shammas notes, “Those artists who create something from nothing and turn it into this great work that resonates with so many different people.”
Throughout their childhood they dreamed of a career in music and took every opportunity to develop and fine-tune their writing skills. They found themselves writing the types of songs that where driven by relevant and heartfelt story-telling lyrics. “We realized we wanted to write songs with real emotion that people can truly relate to,” Mazin explains. “At the same time we were always singing around the house and in the car along with the radio and feeling we were getting better and better all the time.”
In early 2011, the brothers recorded a demo of 11 of their songs and started to receive tremendous feedback from music industry professionals and their local friends and fans. As a result, their music and all of their exciting potential came to the attention of American Music Executive Mark Mazzetti, whose illustrious career includes holding top A&R positions at A&M Records and A&M/Polygram and guiding the music and careers of STING, JANET JACKSON, BRYAN ADAMS, SIMPLE MINDS and later, JOHN MAYER (SONY).
In April 2011, working under the guidance of Mazzetti and his A&R/Management company, RECORD COMPANY IN A BOX, BRITROYAL travelled to L.A. and started writing and recording with hit songwriter and record producers, MIKAL BLUE (OneRepublic, Colbie Caillat, Carrie Underwood, Jason Mraz) and J.R. RICHARDS (former Dishwalla lead singer who penned the U.S. #1 hit “Counting Blue Cars” and Platinum-selling album PET YOUR FRIENDS). Now the recordings have been completed and OLIVER embark on the most exciting adventure of their lives.
“This has been the most amazing and creative year of our lives. We feel like these are the best songs we have ever written and we are really proud of the new material. We feel so lucky to have this opportunity to work with these unbelievably talented Producers and musicians,” say Kais and Mazin.
You can expect to hear big radio-ready pop songs, built on huge anthemic choruses, soaring melodies epic hooks and passionate vocals.
2013 is the year of OLIVER…..
