About the Band
Hailing from West London - the birthplace of the British blues invasion of the 1960s - The O.D's are a 6-piece band who take inspiration from their local blues heritage and bring that sound into the 21st century.
Singer Mike Nicholson and guitarist Brian Reeves joined forces in the spring of 2010 and, after spending a year in the studio writing and recording, sought out West London's finest musicians in order to bring The O.D's sound to live audiences.
What does the name mean?

What best describes The O.D's sound?
It's the sound of the Thames Delta Blues, influenced by the bands that came out of the West London 60s blues invasion such as Josh White, Son House, Fleetwood Mac, Yardbirds and Elmore James.
