Oliver Sain

Legendary Mr. Oliver SainMusicians come and go, but in St. Louis the person who has been at the center of music in every capacity (and survived) with the greatest influence, is Oliver Sain . As multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, arranger, songerwriter, producer and owner of recording facilities, Sain is the man. Only his friend Ike Turner can claim comparable influence. In the late sixties, he opened his Archway Studio on Natural Bridge Boulevard in St. Louis. Nearly every musical style has been recorded there in the past twenty-five years, from Phil Perry's smooth vocal group The Montclairs, to avant-gardist Julius Hemphill's Coon Bid-ness. Oliver Sain still plays as strongly as before, leading his band onstage regularly in St. Louis, as well as the occasional European appearances, and all the recognitions and perks of being a master of the craft come his way: Lifetime Achievement awards, live shots on "Good Morning, America" and NPR, and some royalty checks. Having reached his sixties in full control of his musical gifts, why expect Oliver Sain's story to be finished. For more info read his interview.
