O&O to release debut EP ‘Truth Comes Out' on September 21st

Following a packed summer of festivals including Cambridge Folk, Buckle & Boots, and Black Deer; tour dates and radio airplay across the UK including multiple BBC radio appearances, London-based Americana duo O&O have announced the Sept 21st release of their long-awaited debut EP ‘Truth Comes Out’, and revealed the lead single of the same name, available to stream now (listen here) and to download immediately for fans who pre-order the EP. Along with the title track, this new release features a total of four brand new songs including previous single ‘Tears In The Rain’, the video for which premiered last month on The Bluegrass Situation.

Orian Peled & Obadiah Jones comment “This summer has been momentous for us in getting to share our music with new audiences across the UK and we cannot wait to share our debut EP with everyone. This collection of songs came together over five busy months and several trips to Liverpool in the midst of our summer tour. Writing and recording the tracks one by one allowed us to try new writing styles and sounds as each new song was influenced by the ones that came before.”

Describing the single: “‘Truth Comes Out’ was inspired by the gritty sound we got from plugging Obadiah’s guitar into an old reel-to-reel tape machine that our producer, Alec Brits, has in his studio. That distorted sound led us into the most rocky territory we’ve explored so far and influenced the darker themes of betrayal in the lyrics.”

O&O will be showcasing songs from the new release at Apples & Pears in Shoreditch, London on Sept 14th. The EP is available to pre-order now on all platforms (Amazon / iTunes) and the single will be available to stream on Spotify soon.

In 2014 David Messer having promoted roots music for a number of years through DMP UK, decided to start a festival to give a platform for new and up and coming artists to play with known and established artists and to bring the best in roots music to London under one banner. So he teamed up with his friends at National Promotion company Kilimanjaro Live and created the The London Folk & Roots Festival, a multi venue event over two weeks in Oct/Nov.

It’s grown from doing 6 shows in the first year to 32 last year across various size venues such as The Palladium, Bush Hall, Union Chapel, Shepherds Bush Empire, Oslo and many more.

They have changed the name this year as they feel that folk comes under roots and they have an eclectic mix of folk, country, Americana, blues, singer songwriters and world music. We are very pleased here at LCM that this festival, is becoming a great part of London’s musical calendar.
