Offa Rex is the exciting new project by excellent singer-songwriter Olivia Chaney and Portland's very own The Decemberists.
The thirteen tracks on their new debut album 'The Queen of Hearts' draw largely on traditional English-Irish-Scottish music to create a transatlantic collaboration that combines elements of psychedelia, prog folk and folk rock to create a new rich and sublime mix.
Offa Rex will tour this summer, including performances at the Newport Folk Festival, Town Hall in New York, and at The Aladdin in Portland. They will also be performing at Travelers’ Rest, The Decemberists’ two-day curated festival in Missoula, MT on August 12 and 13. Additionally, Olivia Chaney will support The Decemberists during their August tour, during which she will join the band on stage to perform songs from 'The Queen of Hearts'. Olivia will also do a few solo shows around these dates.
