A key player in the new wave of contemporary folk singers, Olive Klug is an independent singer/songwriter with a rare vocal gift. Self-styled after genre icons like Joni Mitchell and Brandi Carlile, Olive is known for their beautiful tone and vividly honest storytelling. Their sound is reminiscent of the Golden Age of American Folk Music, but with a uniquely modern lyrical sensibility
Following the success of their Tiktok video previews, Olive released a series of new singles in the Spring and Summer of 2021. These songs chronicle Olive's struggle to make sense of a senseless world and reflects their experience with queer identity, ambivalence in romantic relationships, and the struggle to establish adulthood in unprecedented times. Olive released their single "Self Help" on February 4, 2022, a bittersweet tear-jerker about personal growth that received critical acclaim from multiple press outlets.
In March 2022, Olive joined iconic power pop trio Jukebox the Ghost for two weeks of their national tour through some of the largest cities in the Great Lakes Region. Additionally, Olive has shared their music in their hometown of Portland, Oregon's most notable venues including an opening slot for Noah Kahan at the Crystal Ballroom. Since moving to Los Angeles in October of 2022, Olive has played headline shows at the Silverlake Lounge and Junior High. Recently, Olive joined several indie folk icons Semler, Mal Blum, and Henry Jamison on short national tours throughout the spring of 2022.
In June, Olive joined peers Kevin Atwater and Odie Leigh on a "Sleepover Themed" tour of the American South and East Coast. After the joy and success of this co-headlining tour, the three friends are setting out on a West Coast "Sleepover Tour" in September! Tickets can be purchased in the "shows" section of the website
