About Olly Goodman
Olly Goodman is the man behind Devil’s Gun. He began writing music at the impressionable age of 14 working with drum & bass legends Micky Finn & Aphrodite, quickly releasing his own tracks through various labels to great success and nationwide radio play. He was bitten by the bug and gained a steely determination that still drives him today.
On return from a messy boy’s holiday in Ibiza, he found his brain had been rewired – and decided to turn his hand to writing house music. He immediately found radio support for his first house bootleg (a remix of Lionel Riche’s All Night Long) from Radio 1’s Chris Moyles who championed the mix for over 2 months ensuring daily airplay. The decision proved wise – major labels started knocking on his door and he found himself a go-to remixer for artists as diverse as Lionel Richie to New Order.
Olly wanted more so he and a friend decided to start a band and focus on creating something so unique and devastating that it was impossible to ignore. Devil’s Gun was formed! Tours ensued and the band hit the festival circuit playing venues ranging from the Glastonbury East Dance tent to V Festival, the Isle of Wight to Get Loaded in the Park where they found themselves supporting 2 Many DJs among others. Later the boys gigged with now world-famous singer/rapper Example. From this friendship came their biggest remix to date – Example’s – Watch the Sun Come Up. With over 2 million YouTube views they quickly found themselves inundated with remix requests from some of the world’s biggest artists and bands wanting the Devils’ unique touch and heavy electro sound on their tracks.
Currently residing in his studio in Dalston, Olly now works alone focusing on writing sharp-edged forward-thinking pop songs which brought him to the notice of Notting Hill Publishing & into the world’s filing cabinet of exciting new talent. Most recently Olly has been the official producer for the rapper/pop star Example writing his new album over the last 6 months & also celebrating Radio 1 song of the week for a track he co-wrote for Julian Perretta – Tied Up. Last year saw his first number 1 single and world number 1 album with the lead single ‘Paradox’ from Arashi album ‘Love’. Other cuts involve Mike Posner, Sam Sparro and writing original material with Ed Sheeran & Blake Lewis.
