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
Over the course of the next six months, Olive plans to release a series of singles culminating in a debut full-length project. Olive's lead single, "Out of Line", is a full-band folk anthem about rejecting conformity. Lyrics like "I'll stop seeking to find, start saying what's on my mind" chronicle their own deconstruction of the social norms they were once taught, while the choir singing "isn't life so fun ain't it so great, when you're watching all the rules disintegrate" is a call to action to their listeners to question what they've been taught. "Out of Line" is now available on all platforms and you can stream the song below
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 set out on a West Coast "Sleepover Tour" in September, selling out multiple venues and selling over 250+ tickets at others.
