The singer-songwriter is enchanting crowds with their whimsical and poignant songs exploring identity, growing up, and ever-changing relationships.
Olive Klug (they/them) charmed the crowd while opening for Daisy the Great at Nashville’s small but mighty music venue, The End. Donning a cowboy hat and mustache, Olive vocalized their support against ongoing Anti-Drag legislation within Tennessee. Olive wowed the crowd immediately with a short cover from Willie Nelson before diving into their SOMETHING setlist. A mighty vocalist, Olive Klug relished in the attentive audience as the crowded room sang along. Our only complaint? The setlist was too short, and we need to be in attendance for a headlining show from the artist stat.

The artist has continue to gain traction by joining TikTok in 2020 and sharing song previews and connecting with fans.
