O & O are rapidly rising Country-Americana music artists. The American-Israeli duo has gained the attention of Chris Country Radio, Richer Unsigned, UK Country Radio and notable Country music blogs in the UK and across the pond, gaining features on Nashville’s The Boot and The Bluegrass Situation. They appeared in 2018 at the Black Deer, Buckle & Boots, and Cambridge Folk festivals. They were one of the highlights of this year’s Country to Country festival at the O2 Arena, with W21 Music describing their “lovely harmonies”. They were one of a handful of acts chosen to record an exclusive Under The Apple Tree acoustic session at the event.
Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Obadiah Jones, and Israeli vocalist, Orian Peled, met and established their deep connection as a songwriting partnership whilst studying at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and were awarded the unique opportunity of a one-on-one songwriting session with Sir Paul McCartney. O&O have recently returned with their long-awaited debut EP Truth Comes Out, a collection of honest, heart-rending songs, and it is available to stream/download now. Website www.oandoduo.com
