Ep309: Elevating Mission-Driven Independent Artists Through Music Mission House Platform with Award-Winning Singer, Producer, and Songwriter Ollie Gabriel
March 14, 2022
Ollie Gabriel is an award-winning singer, producer, and songwriter who won a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Male Vocal in 2018. With over 40 million streams globally, a top 10 radio hit Running Man in Europe, a top 30 hit on Australian dance radio, and a top 30 Billboard chart hit on the Adult Contemporary charts, he’s made it his mission to use music as a tool that could be really used to move people in a really deep way.
Running Man Struck a Chord
Before his rise from his hit single Running Man, Ollie was doing music for films and TV, while also shopping for his music in the US to all record labels to no avail. But even the mildest rejection can sting, and that defeated his spirit for a little while.
Not until that one fateful day when he grabbed a coffee down the street from his studio that he saw a guy in line who had two prosthetic limbs. His jovial spirit, in spite of the physical condition he was born into, and unyielding faith in winning in Paralympics inspired Ollie. Upon meeting this man, he thought about how many times people may have told him he couldn’t play sports or he will never be able to run, and yet he didn’t let that stop him and instead thrive above it.
20 minutes later, he came upon the chords and the first line of his hit single Running Man. 2 years later, Running Man struck a chord in Germany, making it to the top 10 in Europe and giving Ollie his long-awaited start as an artist.
Ollie’s fundamental belief is that music is a belief builder. Growing up as a church musician, he’s witnessed that music was much more than just sounds, it possesses energy that could really draw emotion from people. It is one of the most powerful tools that we have to shift consciousness to make the world a better place. It can serve as a vehicle to plant seeds of hope, inspiration, love, coming together, of all the things and values that we want to see in society.

Ollie believes that the transparency will urge listeners to stream music to help make a difference, thus, elevating the artists’ exposure.
For their launching day, they have secured two superyachts in Croatia and are organizing an intimate writers camp for sync placements and artist placements. They are bringing aboard 50 artists across 2 ships, and a handful of industry experts for discussions on music branding, Music Web3 + blockchain, Investors, and financial literacy, all while writing for some incredible Sync Licensing and brand opportunities. The experience will also have a charitable impact component.
