Musical twins and mavericks besides, they’re folk that resembles everything else: bringing challenging originals, entertaining stories and incredible energy, this new duo packs emotional punches but have songs to heal the scars.
Originally from the NSW Riverina and NZ respectively, Lindsay Martin’s masterful strings and vocal meets songstress Victoria Vigenser’s magnificent voice and driving rhythms in a connection that is hard to describe. They’re known already for uniquely gritty, evocative songs with echoes of their love for Americana and Celtic traditional music amongst the harmonies.
Coming together for just a handful of performances in 2018, audiences gave the duo no choice but to continue. Their original collaboration has been making a bold mark on both sides of the Tasman after only a couple of years performing – a steep and fast rise to Australasian festivals and shows has seen the duo selected as a showcase artist for Folk Alliance International, twice nominated “Te Kaipuoro Taketake Toa | Best Folk Artist” in the Aotearoa (New Zealand) Music Awards, twice nominated “Best Contemporary Duo/Group/Ensemble” in the Australian Folk Music Awards and recipients of Australia’s Troubadour Foundation Award.
