“…one of the best Americana albums of the year” — The Associated Press
Mesmerizing folk duo Ordinary Elephant has spent the better part of the last decade on a
never-ending tour that’s earned married couple Crystal and Pete Damore widespread critical
acclaim and made fans of luminaries like Tom Paxton and Mary Gauthier.
In 2017, the pair took home the International Folk Music Award for Artist of the Year on the strength of their
breakout album, Before I Go, and two years later, they returned with the similarly lauded Honest, which the Associated Press hailed as “one of the best Americana albums of the year.”
The band’s new stripped-down, self-titled collection is the purest distillation of their sound yet, showcasing the arresting power of the couple’s gorgeous harmonies and intricate fretwork. The songs are timeless, rooted in rich, character-driven storytelling, and the performances are similarly transportive, fueled by delicately intertwined banjo, guitar, and octave mandolin. Though professional lives embody the limitless possibility of honest, organic collaboration. Press play on Ordinary Elephant and you’ll hear more than just a husband and wife; you’ll hear thesound of sincerity and commitment, of patience and gratitude, of learning to let go of expectation and revel in the simple beauty of the moment.
