Olly Alexander is a British singer, musician, singer-songwriter and gay rights advocate. He has been in and out of the limelight since the early seventies. His music has been released under the name Years & Years as well as Olly Alexander.
Olly started playing guitar at a very young age and even received the choicest of musical selections when he was a child growing up in a foster household. After moving on to train on the keyboards, he began learning to play guitar and even played an instrument for the first time when he was nineteen years old. Olly Alexander has been nominated for an MTV Europe award five times, the Olly Alexander Music Awards, the Polaris Music Prize, the Polaris Music Awards, the Brits Most Talked About Festival, and the Brits Breakthroughs award. Olly has also won the Video Music Awards three times, the Best British Male Vocalist, the Best Rock Performance at a UK club or Olly Alexander Title at the Brits Music Awards. Olly has also been nominated multiple times for a Polaris Award, including the Polaris Music Awards for Breakthroughs, which took place in 2004.
Olly Alexander was born into a foster family in the north of England where his biological father, a mining engineer, was stationed. Olly’s biological mother, however, was working as a nurse at a maternity hospital when her boyfriend, a serviceman, drove her away from home. Olly’s biological father never had any contact with Olly until after the birth of his son and was never told about Olly’s adoption, despite it having been mentioned in his military records.

In 2002, Olly Alexander formed the band Mottley Crue. The band went through several lineup changes before settling into their current lineup. The first line up included the popular Markie Costa, who went on to play bass for AC/DC. Later on in their career, Olly Alexander, along with the late Chris Edge, was joined by the original line up of Markie Costa, who went on to play bass and vocals; there was then a revolving door of bassists until Jason Priestley stepped down from being a member of AC/DC to concentrate on his solo career. Olly has played on all their albums and has since become a well-known solo artist.
The movie version of Olly Alexander is much different than the lead singer/ songwriter version. Olly Alexander plays a role not unlike the original Ozzy Osbourne in the reality television show The Osbournes. The movie takes place in London in the year 2004, with Olly playing the lead singer of the band Ozzie and the band consisting of him, guitarist/singer Ed O’Brien, and bassist John Butler. Olly is the only original member who is in the movie. The other members are replaced by auditionees who have previously appeared on stage or in films.
Olly Alexander is directed by none other than Clint Eastwood, who has previous credits to his credit which include the movies; Good Will Hunting, and Gran Torino. No doubt, Olly Alexander will be able to attract audiences like few other singers were able to. The musical feature film god help is quite positive and it does play well for the main lead role. Olly Alexander is here to stay in my estimation, and is definitely a definite must see movie this Christmas!
