With the release of their first three singles and debut EP, American-Israeli duo O&O have garnered the attention of Chris Country Radio, BBC London, UK Country Radio, notable Country music blogs in the UK and across the pond, gaining features on Nashville’s The Boot and The Bluegrass Situation. The two met while studying at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where they had the unique opportunity of a one-on-one songwriting session with Sir Paul. After select shows in NYC and Nashville, O&O relocated to London in 2017. Since then, the pair have made their presence felt on the live music circuit with a successful UK summer tour including festival appearances at Cambridge Folk, Buckle & Boots, Country To Country and Black Deer in 2018. Their live show features the duo's distinctive, close-harmony sound with an Americana flare - Fleetwood Mac meets The Civil Wars.
