Tears In The Rain - O and O
One of the fast rising duos currently in London are our next LCM featured artists the wonderful Americana Folk Pop couple O&O. O&O are Colorado-native, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Obadiah Jones and Israeli vocalist, Orian Peled. The two met while studying for a Music BA at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) where they had the unique opportunity of a one-on-one songwriting session with Sir Paul. Obadiah and Orian have been very busy since settling in London. releasing some great and memorable music as well as performing around the UK, including some major Country, Americana and Folk festivals. Their live show features the duo's distinctive, close-harmony sound with an Americana flare, imagine Fleetwood Mac meets The Civil Wars. With a brand new EP promised, our LCM #SongOfTheDay is the beautiful and sublime 'Tears In The Rain'.
Obadiah and Orian comment “The video for ‘Tears In The Rain’ is our second collaboration with filmmakers Jordan Rawi (director) and William Fielding (director of photography). We shot the whole video in one day at the historic Clementi House in Notting Hill. We wanted the video to reflect the uncertainty of where the relationship in the song stands and add a haunting element. In the video, the two characters are in a mysterious pursuit of each other through the many rooms of the quirky house, but whether or not they could ever find each other again is open to the viewer’s interpretation.”
After select shows in NYC, Nashville and Colorado, O&O relocated to London and released their debut single, 'Traveling' in June 2017. Featured on Chris Country Radio's New Music List and Richer Unsigned's Best of August 2017 playlist.Although new to the London scene, O&O have made their presence felt on the live music circuit this last year with support slots for artists such as Australian Music Award nominees, the Germein Sisters, ahead of the band's appearance at the 2017 Isle of Wight Festival.
