Written during the first few weeks of lockdown in New Zealand, Roses was inspired by an online connection, which ultimately turned out to be not all that it seemed.

The story of the song begins with a girl called Daniella, who Oliver became intrigued by. Their communication began over Instagram and graduated to phone calls and Oliver was inspired by her stories, particularly her story of roses and their significance throughout her remarkable life, which just fueled his intrigue.

Oliver was so moved by her stories, he wrote Roses. But the deeper he went with the communication, the more her story became harder to believe. After consulting with a friend and a bit of digging, he uncovered Daniella was not who she claimed to be. Even her photos had been stolen from another Instagram account.

“This incredibly intelligent and unique [person] was now a woman I essentially knew nothing about, and it started to occur to me that everything she had told me was a lie,” he says.

Roses was written before Oliver knew that he had made a connection with someone who he would never truly know, and represents the excitement of beginning a relationship with another human.

“It also now represents a valuable lesson for me. But thank you, Daniella, or whoever you are, because I think Roses may even be my favourite song I've ever written.”

Oliver is a respected singer and songwriter, who has travelled the globe with his music. In 2017, he won the prestigious Silver Scroll Award for his song If I Move To MarsWith a handful of records to his name, including Floating In The Darkness and 2020’s The Brightest Light he has made a lasting mark with his unique voice, compelling storytelling and mesmerizing live shows.
