After cutting his teeth with the indie-rock outfit Dukes Of Windsor (2005-2010), Oscar moved to Berlin to live in 2011. Whilst there, he began writing with singer/songwriter Timothy Carroll, who at that point lived in Stockholm. The songs they developed eventually became the first album by HOLY HOLY, 'When The Storms Would Come' (2015). They followed this release with their sophomore record, 'PAINT', in early 2017, which entered the Australian album charts at #7.

During this time, Oscar collaborated with the singer/songwriter Ali Barter. The pair released two EPs independently through 2014 and 2015, before writing and producing Barter's debut album 'A Suitable Girl' (also released in early 2017). The album was featured by national broadcaster triple j, shortlisted for the AMP prize and the annual ‘j award’ in 2017, and saw Barter tour throughout Australia and overseas.  

Oscar works closely with  Melbourne songwriter Alex Lahey. Lahey's debut album, 'I Love You Like A Brother', was released in mid-2017 in Australia, the EU and the USA. The album was also featured on triple j and shortlisted for the ‘j award’, with the singles ‘Everyday’s The Weekend’ and ‘I Haven’t Been Taking Care Of Myself’ voted into the annual triple j ‘Hottest 100’ poll in early 2018.

Outside of his work with these artists, Oscar produced the sixth album from Melbourne rock-act British India, 'Forgetting The Future', which was released in September 2017, and wrote/produced the debut record from troubadour Ben Wright Smith, 'The Great Divorce' (released Feb 2017).

He continues to write and produce with artists throughout Australia, whilst taking time off occasionally - to play his guitar.
