Out of Battle Lake, Minnesota emerge Blue Red Roses. Songwriting partners and life partners Mary and Daniel Olson craft melody laden hooks with an organic groove and nostalgic sound.
Mary and Dan both come from live rock and roll backgrounds along with years of musical theater and classical training. With an unapologetic love of ’70s music, their sound is nostalgic, upbeat and off the cuff — featuring up-front vocals and tight harmonies. Their live experience is akin to a stripped down ABBA with a touch of Beatles pop and Tom Petty rock and roll.
Mary and Dan have been touring regularly throughout Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana — opening for the Brevet at First Avenue 7th Street Entry, playing on Radio Free Fargo, and getting features on Prairie Public Television.
