Utah-based siblings and singer/songwriters Ammon and Liahona Olayan have released their latest single and music video, “Make Me Forget It.” The song features a pop-centric beat and showcases their vocal harmony as a brother-sister musical duo.
Ammon and Liahona are enjoying huge success with solo projects and a joint album in the works. They performed their original song, “Boom”, on the popular music competition show, American Idol. The audition concluded with a standing ovation and earned praise from each of the Idol judges – it has since garnered over 1.5 million views on YouTube. The pair were also featured on I Will Go and Do: 2020 Youth Album, featuring David Archuleta and other artists of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Their song, “What Does He Think” and Liahona’s solo track, “Live Forever”, have amassed a total of over 500,000 Spotify streams to date. The two continue to express their gratitude and faith through music as they explore their artistry and grow into their musical careers.
The singer/songwriter duo are no strangers to family struggles and hardship, however, they credit the hard times as a part of their musical revelation and development. In 2015, their parents quit their jobs to leave behind a life in Utah so that their children could reconnect to the land of their heritage in Hawaii. Living out of tents with no electricity and basic living necessities forced the pair to tap into their musical talents. Little did they know, the hours spent writing songs and honing in on their craft would bring them to where they are now, pursuing their dreams as recording artists.
The siblings are set to perform in their hometown at Covey Center for the Arts in Provo, Utah on Wednesday, October 27th at 7:30pm, singing their hit songs and tracks to be released on theirupcoming album. For tickets to the show, visit: https://coveycenter.csstix.com/
