Olive Tiger is the result of collaboration between Olive (cello/guitar/vocals), Jesse Newman (violin), and Dane Scozzari (drums). Growing out of the folk tradition, Olive Tiger has evolved from those origins to incorporate influences from jazz, hip-hop, rock, classical, and electronic music. The result is somewhere between St. Vincent, My Brightest Diamond, Andrew Bird, 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 for release in early 2016.
