Melody Ave presents Art Aid Grant Winner, Oliver Hanfann


In partnership with Melody Ave, we are presenting Oliver Hanfann through the 
COVID-19 Artist Relief  through our Art Aid Grant


Performance is on Melody Ave's Facebook page at 8:00pm Tonight

******************************************************************************************

Born and raised in sunny South Florida, Oliver Hanfmann began his musical career at the age of
fifteen, singing along to Beatles songs and joining the Jupiter High School chorus. The next year he
entered the Spectrum choir and fronted a rock band put together by Absolute Music Studios based in
Jupiter, Florida.
Combined with the choral classical training he gained from school and the contemporary rock and pop
stylings embodied in his studio experiences, he went on to major in Vocal Performance and received a
vocal scholarship at Palm Beach State College for making it into their elite Troubadours octet in his
Freshman year. In 2018 and 2019, he also taught at the North Palm Beach and South Palm Beach
School of Rock campuses as a Vocal Instructor.
Now, Oliver performs for a living either as a solo musician or as frontman of his band The
Wavelengths and offers private in-home singing lessons to those interested in furthering their own
vocal expertise.
His solo set consists of live-looping acoustic guitar with bass, drums, flute, tenor saxophone, and
piano, weaving through many different decades and genres as he does so to keep the audience
guessing. With his music he tells stories of glory, of loss, of turmoil and triumph, and of love and

heartbreak; seeking to capture the highs and lows of the human experience in his art.

A few words from Carole and Sam:

  Hello, my name is Carole, Samuel Perry’s wife. Sam will be temporarily out of work for the moment. Maybe you can help us achieve a goal.I am reaching out to you because Sam needs your help. Time is precious. Cancer brings all perspective back to the essence of things. Spend your life doing strange things with weird people he would say. And never solve problems with the same mindset that created it. As we know medical bills are not cheap and we need to raise money to support his complete recovery. With the artist at heart, he never stopped dreaming. Let’s show him that dreams do come through. With God on our side anything is possible.

 

  

From a phone call with Sam: 

I am overwhelmed with gratefulness for the outpouring of love that I have received and am still receiving through this... experience. I so thankful to all of you for doing this. I am thankful for the grace of God that has been given to me, for the light of Christ in my life, and for the many different communities that I have gotten to be part of, that are showing me so much love right now. I am a fighter, and I am not going to give up. I will fight to be able to return to this life that I had with you all, to teaching and to making my art. And I am willing to accept any help that my friends would offer. Thank you! I hope to be able to provide inspiration to this artistic community some more, and I love you guys.
