Review of New Single in Country Perspective

Big Thanks to Appalachian Music Blog, Country Perspective [dot] com, for their warm review of D&O’s latest single, “The Ballad of Rose.”

When it comes to country and Americana duos, the listener has to feel the chemistry between the two. That can certainly be felt when listening to Americana duo David & Olivia. 10394861_745398978865290_8930095170980383643_nThe duo is from Huntington Beach, California and upon meeting each other one night in 2011, they felt an instant musical chemistry. They made their debut in 2013 with their On the Sea EP and toured coast-to-coast spreading the word of their music receiving some critical praise along the way. The duo just released their first single with London Tone Music and it’s called “The Ballad of Rose.” When asked about the origins of this song, David recalled, “When I sat down to write this song, Rose lead me down a very honest and haunting hallway where each room we came upon held a scene from my past.”

With that in mind let’s take a look at their new single. The song begins with…”

“Think beautiful harmonies, well written lyrics, easy breezy feeling arrangements, and you’ve got David & Olivia pegged.

David Rosales and Olivia May met up with each other by chance in 2011 and their musical chemistry has been sparking every since.

With a lovely blend of melancholy blues and country sweetness, their debut EP, On the Sea fits perfectly with a summer night, a glass of wine in hand. You get the picture.”
