The early years

Oliver raised up in a little suburb of Hannover (Misburg) with his mother, his aunt and his grand mother. By the age of three he moved for four years to Luxembourg with his mother, before they returned for another four years to Hannover. At the age of eleven his mother decided to definately settle down in Luxembourg. His teenager years were dedicated to sports, mostly volley-ball, where he became several times junior champion of Luxembourg and played the junior national team.

His sports career came to an end due to his passion wiht music. Aged 17 he founded his first school band by the name of "Deep Sleep", followed by the "Smurfs" and "The Frantic Mind Experience". With "The Frantic Mind Experience" he won the national newcomer contest "Looking for the Best", that allowed the band to play on the biggest festival "Rock um Knuedler" and to make a first CD. The single "I feel alright" went straight to number one in the luxemburgish charts. Over the years two other songs "Mail me" and "Wéi meng Mamm nach huet gesponnen" also reach the top of the charts.

After his A-level in economics in 1994, Oliver worked in the funds and the private banking departments of the Banque de Luxembourg. Aged 25 he decided to leave the bank and started his career as DJ.

Medias were another passion of Sir Oliver and beneath his own radio show from 2004 to 2006 on DNR, he worked as tv-presenter for RTL and Tango TV as well as journalist for "Tageblatt", "Luxemburger Wort" and "Telecran".
