Ollie grew up in the 1960's in Flint, Michigan. An auto manufacturing city sixty-five miles north of Detroit. He grew up marinated in the music of Motown. Along with R&B & Top 40 Pop & Rock music.
In their homes, his parents & grandparents played such artists as Count Basie, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Barbra Streisand, Duke Ellington, Arthur Prysock, Lightnin' Hopkins & Howlin' Wolf. Among many others.
The Jazz, Rock, Pop, R&B & Brazilian music he heard all greatly shaped his musical & political consciousness growing up as a Black young man in the United States of America.
