August 30, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Indie-folk duo Ocie Elliott unveil their intimate new EP A Place out now and available today via digital retailers HERE. The four-song EP is highly nuanced with tender harmonies and empathetic storytelling. It shows off the duo’s deepening connection that has only strengthened since the start of the pandemic.
The EP release features “Eyes Fall,” a rustic ballad of soft reassurance to a loved one. The traditional folk cadence is complemented by delicate harmonies. The track comes on the heels of recent single “Wait For You,” which imagines the intense aching of missing a loved one and it only goes to show how powerful Ocie Elliott’s music can be. “’A Place’, is a collection of songs written mainly during the summer of 2020,” says Ocie Elliott. “Primarily centered around the acoustic guitar, these songs reflect a summer spent off the road reflecting upon topics of love, loss, companionship and home.”

Ocie Elliott – Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundy – met playing music at a festival on the small, wind-swept Salt Spring Island, where their love of music and the chemistry of their voices fostered an instant connection. Their musical partnership 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, followed by the critically acclaimed Tracks EP. At the top of the summer and in the midst of the 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 and the end result was the Slow Tide EP.
