Shane Olinski

Often hailed as the Syd Barrett of Norwich (referring to his similar style, not his far more prodigious output), Shane's gloriously prolific and eccentric career has spanned 4 decades. Along with his equally prolific work as an underground promoter in the Norwich music scene, sometime putting on nearly 100 gigs a year for as long as anyone can remember, Shane has garnered widespread adulation; though his abstruse, anti-pop personality as well as his Romantic penchant for the local and the provincial has always caused him to cock a snook at the limelight. Nonetheless, Shane's many accolades include featuring on BBC 6's Exposure series back in 2017.

While his recorded output is immense and varied, including many different bands, collaborations and one-off projects, the vast majority of Shane's output remains underground.
