The initial recordings he made featured just him singing and playing piano, but has since introduced full band songs. He also plays guitar in some songs accompanied by Jim Hewins on bass guitar and Marco Pasquariello playing the drums. His influences include Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Tracy Chapman, The Beach Boys and James Taylor.
His initial success lay only in the thousands of hits he had from the music he uploaded onto internet music sites. However, Sloan's popularity rocketed after two of his most popular tracks, one of which was "Friends are Family", were used as instrumental music on BBC1's hospital drama Holby City. Ollie is also very well known on several social media sites such as YouTube, YouNow, Instagram, Twitter and several more.
In November 2007 and March 2008, "Friends are Family" and "Memories" were aired during Holby City episodes, and since then both songs have become available to download on iTunes. At this point, Sloan was unsigned but Radio 1 presenter, Jo Whiley, who played Sloan's track on air in November, claimed, "I suspect that won't be for long."
In 2012, Sloan collaborated with british producers and artists 'The Elite' on 'I'll Go Far' for Team Sky for the Olympics.
July 2013, Sloan's co-written track with 'Iain Archer' entitled 'Pockets' was released as a single by 'The Voice Australia's' finalist, Danny Ross. In addition, having the album title named after a lyric from the song 'as the crow flies'.
