Almond&Olive are folk and Americana duo Natalie Alms and Ollie Davidson. Below, you can hear, in full for the first time, their debut album Standing at the Precipice. They recorded the album at Kingsize Sound Labs with producer John Abbey (Robbie Fulks). Joining them on the record were Gerald Dowd (Bloodshot Records) and gospel singers from the A Team (who toured with Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin). One of the first conversations they had about music revolved around their shared love of Bob Dylan and favourite bands and influences, including Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, and Mumford and Sons. These influences provide a starting point while the band layers steady acoustic guitar with the croon of a heartbroken harmonica, and rich harmonies with a hint of wavering grit.
