Jaws The Shark is the solo project of London based musician, Olly Bailey. Formed in Spring 2020 after escaping London and moving to the Devon Countryside, the idea of Jaws The Shark was one first conceived out of a mixture of frustration and boredom, during a national lockdown. It was here, that the endless creative ideas that Bailey had been harbouring over the past few years, were afforded the time to be brought to life and to flourish. There are few new acts emerging with the same raw and captivating energy that Bailey has created with Jaws The Shark - A name taken from Bailey’s favourite television series ‘Peep Show’. After signing with prominent tastemaker label, Nice Swan Records, along with significant support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 and Radio X, whilst also featuring as Jack Saunders’ ‘Next Wave’ artist on BBC Radio 1, it has given Bailey a wider exposure in recent times and allowed to help build upon the continuous forward trajectory and hype surrounding Jaws The Shark.
Jaws The Shark is certainly swimming in a sea of potential, and with a debut EP imminent, his presence across the musical landscape is primed to become even greater in the months to come.Source [Spotify]
