Olive Tiger is the result of collaboration between Olive Kiley (cello/guitar/vocals), Jesse Newman (violin), and Dane Scozzari (drums). Rooted in the folk tradition, Olive Tiger has grown from those origins to incorporate influences from jazz, hip-hop, rock, classical, and electronic music. The result is somewhere between St. Vincent, Andrew Bird, Joanna Newsom, Rasputina, and tUnE-yArDs. Olive Tiger, at its start, began as a much larger group led by Olive. Wanting to incorporate her cello and her loop pedal, the music took on a new shape and sound, requiring the detailed attention of a smaller group. Now a trio with frequent guests, Olive Tiger is currently working on their debut album, due fall 2015.
Born under a full moon in the city of H.P. Lovecraft himself, Tiny Diamond has been stealing the hearts of Rhode Island's local music aficionados since 2014. Tiny Diamond is fueled by the talents of three fantastic women who call Rhode Island home. Their songs, all original, are characterized by their awesome indie-pop sensibilities, a penchant for exquisite harmonies, sick beats and a constant rotation of instrumentation, all electric, and all badass. All of the time.
