Based in Woolwich, Ooberfuse are a songwriting duo composed of Hal St John and Cherrie Anderson. They are unafraid to deep-sea dive into the deepest oceans of human emotions to colour-up drab contemporary life. Their songs are audio footprints left behind by people impelled towards invisible things.
On what sets Ooberfuse apart from their peers, an influential UK music critic says: “Ethereal electronic pop with the complex beauty that Ooberfuse has will endure.” Well-crafted songs delivered through powerful, emotional and heartfelt vocals combined with east-meets-west electronic music are Ooberfuse’s trademarks.
One of Ooberfuse’s strengths is their live performance, having played hundreds of gigs all over the world. They are equally at home performing to an audience of 2 million in Madrid, to hundreds in one of Rio de Janeiro’s notorious favelas, or in front of the House of Lords in the UK. They recently toured the UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, the Philippines and Iraq. They have graced the stage of some of Britain’s most prestigious venues – including the O2 in Greenwich, Leicester Square Theatre, Bush Hall and Trafalgar Square.
Support for Ooberfuse has come from various credible music tastemakers such as Paul Oakenfold, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Ministry of Sound, BBC Introducing’s Tom Robinson, Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly and DJ Mag. Ooberfuse have just come back from a prestigious Nashville songwriting camp sponsored by the UK government (UK Trade and Industry), as part of a small number of handpicked UK artists where they worked with Nashville’s songwriting royalty.
