About

We’re Almond&Olive, a chicago-based folk duo and we have a very exciting announcement.  After 2 and a half years of touring, and many hours writing and practicing, we are finally going into the studio to record our next album.  And to make sure we can complete this ambitious project, we're launching a Kickstarter to help us fund the record. 

Since our debut album was released in 2017, we’ve been traveling across North America, playing over 100 shows and bringing our music to thousands of fans. We’ve met so many wonderful people along the way - people who’s kindness and generosity has humbled us and given us inspiration to create amazing music. Music you will hear on our next record. 

We are dedicating this album to our fans - it is for you that we write our songs of hope, perseverance and the strength it takes to mend a broken heart. With this album, we want to give back to you and spread positivity in a world that desperately needs it. And with our platform, we will continue to fight for causes that make a difference, using our voices when we can to help change the world.

In 2016, our first album, Standing at the Precipice, was generously funded by our friends and family. Back then we were just a couple of musicians armed only with our hopes and dreams.  Since then, and thanks to your support and belief in us, we’ve been so fortunate to be able to live our dreams and create the music we’ve always wanted to.

We need your help again. We are looking to raise $10,000 to create our next record. These funds will go towards studio time, production and the hiring of musicians to play with us. 

Please consider funding our Kickstarter and be the first to receive our next, and greatest, album. With your love and support, you have given us the courage to make our mark in the world.  And with your help, you can once again make our dreams a reality.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

While we are hopeful that we'll complete and release our record by March 2020, variables may arise that would delay the release by a month or two. Our goal is to get this record released by early Spring 2020 at the latest and we will communicate our progress every step of the way. We thank you in advance for your patience and support!
