OLIVE, BRIAN - Two Of Everything ( Co-prod by Dan of the Black Keys) digipack - CD
(Ex-Greenhornes guitarist & Soledad Brothers multi instrumentalist) Following his 2009 self-titled debut, which was praised for skillfully blending soulful R&B with raunchy garage and psychedelia, Brian Olive takes us further on his latest full length "Two Of Everything". Listeners will recognize a number of musical touchstones here (Night Tripper era Dr. John, Exuma, early Funkadelic, Canned Heat, West Coast psych, etc) but the end result is completely Olive's own, an insanely dynamic, soulful, psychedelically-rich summer album perfect for intergalactic flight, night visions, or voodoo rituals.
"Two Of Everything" was recorded and produced by both Olive and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys at The Diamonds in Cincinnati, and Easy Eye Sound in Nashville and features a revolving cast of talent including long time right hand man Mike Weinel, Detroit psychedelic caveman David Shettler (SSM, the Sights), Daniel Allaire (Darker My Love), Jared McKinney (Greenhornes), and with Courtney Jaye, Leisa Han, Kari Kragness, and Sarah Benn on backing vocals. The hauntingly beautiful artwork is by Laura Dolan.
Brian is currently on tour in the US and will be joining the legendary Dr. John and Dan Auerbach on stage at this year's Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. He is also laying down sax parts for Dr. John's upcoming album.
