Jonny Kearney is a songwriter from Hexham and Lucy Farrell is his Kentish accomplice, both blessed with a quality of songwriting that belongs to the Dylan/Thompson/Waits school. They met while studying in Newcastle and were spotted by The Unthanks, opening for them on their UK autumn 2009 tour. Kitchen sink dramas and tales of the heart are played out by Jonny and Lucy with tender, quiet reserve on guitar, piano, fiddle, viola and saw, while Lucy's pure and graceful voice is the perfect foil to Jonny's melancholic tones.

"Their songwriting is heartbreaking and magical, enthralling and unexpected." Rachel Unthank
