Oliver Dawson Saxon
Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson – both founder members of the legendary British Heavy Metal – Oliver/Dawson Saxon continue to rock audiences around the world with a blistering live set chock full of iconic rock anthems, from some of the most classic albums in metal history.
After Saxon, Graham and Steve formed Son of a Bitch (Saxon’s original name) and recorded the album ‘Victim You’ with another former Saxon alumni Pete Gill, guitarist Haydn Conway and vocalist Ted Bullit. John 'Wardi' Ward joined in 2000 along with another former Saxon drummer Nigel Durham.
In 2010 the band released the ‘Motorbiker’ album to great reviews, and features the live favourite ‘Whipping Boy’. The following year Seventh Son vocalist Brian Shaughnessy joined, alongside Paul Oliver on drums and recorded the live album 'Blood and Thunder’.
Now featuring Gav Coulson on lead guitar after Haydn’s departure in 2016, ODS are back writing new material with a range of festival dates already booked throughout the year – catch them near you soon!
