David & Olivia are a duo from Huntington Beach, California, who met during the summer of 2011 and began performing up and down the coast. They came together in 2013 to record their first EP ‘On The Sea’ and toured it across the country, their distinctly Americana sound picking up tons of praise on both sides of the Atlantic. 160 performances (in vineyards, pubs and listening rooms) later, and the pair were on the rise. They began working with London Tone Music and producer Eric Lilavois (whom we have previously featured) and came up with their next single, ‘The Ballad of Rose’.
Haunting, simultaneously beautiful and heartbreaking, the song combines folk and Americana influences with sincere, ethereal vocals and a lilting melody. “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.” David muses. You can check out ‘The Ballad of Rose’ below, and also find the duo at their social media links.
