OCIE ELLIOTT Announce New EP + Share Lead Single “Back Door Run”
October 24, 2020 BY Nettwerk
Victoria, B.C. duo Ocie Elliott – Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundy – dream up dusty folk painted in broad strokes of acoustic instrumentation and lyrical eloquence meant for nights under the stars, long drives with no destination, and quiet moments of reprieve. The duo will release their new EP Slow Tide on March 12, 2021 via Nettwerk, and today they share shadowy lead single “Back Door Run,” which relies on a delicate push-and-pull as gentle reggae-style upstrokes on an acoustic guitar peek through organ swells while Sierra’s breathy vocals bristle with emotion. This song is available at all digital retailers HERE.

Ocie Elliott came to life in 2017 on EP. In between sharing stages with everyone from Mason Jennings and Sons Of The East to Kim Churchill and Joseph, they launched a series of covers on YouTube shot in the backseat of their Honda CRV, performing intimate renditions of Elliott Smith, Gillian Welch, John Prine, and Simon & Garfunkel, to name a few. On the heels of 2019’s We Fall In, the single “Run To You” appeared in a slew of television shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Batwoman, Legacies and more. 2020 proved to be their most prolific year yet kickstarted by the In That Room EP, and following it up with the critically acclaimed Tracks EP. They have racked up over 15 million combined streams and received acclaim from American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine, PopSugar, and more.
At the top of the summer and in the midst of the Global Pandemic, Sierra and Jon retreated to an oceanside bungalow in Ladysmith on Vancouver Island for three days. The peace around them melted into their songwriting. By achieving balance together on Slow Tide, Ocie Elliott might just help listeners do the same.
