In 2010 , Ola released his first UK single, «All Over The World», received much attention, becoming the most played video on 4 Music and The Box and being championed by Scott Mills on BBC Radio One.
In September 2013, Ola’s new international single, «Jackie Kennedy», was released. A second taster from his next – and arguably most important – album, «Carelessly Yours».
The album opens with an «Overture», followed by the tracks «Tonight I’m Yours» and «Maybe».
With «Tonight I’m Yours» I think I found my own voice in many ways. I found a place in pop were I could be truly sincere and emotional. When we made it, it was like a revelation to me. It’s also one of the first songs I wrote for the album.
