Olly & Sam Wedgwood are two very talented Surrey singers and songwriters,. If you’ve ever had a piano lesson, the chances are you learnt from a piano book by their mother, Pam Wedgwood (sales of over half a million books), Their father Denis was Principal Cornet in the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden for 9 years. With both parents being talented musicians, Olly & Sam started playing a multitude of instruments to the highest level from a young age, Their outstanding musicianship has been passed down in the genes and has been reinforced by many years of study, practice and live performances.

Olly Wedgwood
Singer, jazz pianist, song writer and pop band leader.
  Sam Wedgwood
Sam toured the world’s major arenas with Jamie Cullum as guitarist, vocalist and trumpeter for over a year and left to write and record his first solo album 'Smallprint' which is world class and packed full of potential hit singles.

Review;
"I've been really enjoying listening to Sam's Smallprint CD all week and without question Sam is a very fine writer and performer"
Colin Blunstone of
The Zombies (US number 2 with She's Not There) & Alan Parsons Project

Quote;
"Sam Wedgwood is a true multi-talent. Not only a gifted singer and instrumentalist (guitar, piano, trumpet....you name it) but also a fantastic songwriter with a uniquely soulful voice. I'm actually quite jealous."
Jamie Cullum
Olly has been performing well known music and leading bands for over 20 years. He started early by winning a music scholarship at Hampton School and then founding the 'Big Jazz and Blues Band' during his sixth form, where he went on to study jazz piano under Roger Munns.  
As a student at Cambridge University, he founded, conducted and managed Selwyn Jazz, an 18-piece swing band as well as The Lovehandles - a high energy Rhythm & Blues 9-piece band playing fantastic covers to the bopping student masses.  
After University, Olly worked as an engineer and physics teacher by day, also conducting the Magdalen College School Big Band. By night, he gigged with various jazz and soul ensembles, both as a wedding pianist-vocalist and as a 'front man' wedding entertainer. biography continued under video  
     
Video Of Olly's Song Bottled Love   Video Of Sam - UK Finalist of World Looping Competition
One of Olly's first original compositions, which appears on his album 'Just Friends'.   Sam performing Stone In My Shoe Live
(Using Loop Station To Build Up The Track)
 
In 2004, he handed in his notice for his day job and went pro, playing frequently with the Oxford Jazz Quintet (one of Jamie Cullum's previous ensembles).

Olly now runs his Jazz Soul Boogie Band - one of the top wedding entertainment bands on the professional gig circuit in the UK.
  All parts here are performed live. The looping kit enables a solo performer to create a fuller sound. A good performance requires skilful co-ordination and anticipation to control the equipment using pedals. Sam records and retrieves sections played earlier with precision timing, while still performing the new parts and building the layers. At the end of this video, he is harmonising with 4 or 5 layers of his voice and ad-libbing over the top, accompanied by layers of instrumentation and rhythm.
