“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.”
This past weekend David & Olivia were honored at the 2014 Orange County Music Awards with 3 Nominations in the categories of BEST Folk, BEST Country/Americana and BEST New Artist. One highlight of the evening was a featured performance of the duo’s “Key to My Heart,” which brought a rousing ovation from fans, artists and industry alike. Ted Stryker, 106.7FM KROQ DJ and Awards Host, affirmed in a tweet, “You guys sounded great, looked great, nailed it!”
Modern Luxury’s Orange County Magazine, Riviera, chose to feature David & Olivia in their latest issue that hit the stands today! Grab yourself a glass of wine and dig into this “FOLK ART” feature either in physical print or digital…
