Since emerging in 2016, Hannah Sanders and Ben Savage have been defying all conventions of style, genre and compartmentalisation.

A touch of ‘americana’, yet quintessentially English. Traditional, yet contemporary, with their individual writing style. Playful and instinctive, they constantly do the unexpected; yet they do it with such panache and natural chemistry it makes perfect sense.

Hannah Sanders has an alluring mystique and a voice of disarming purity that massages your senses. Ben Savage is a bubbling ferment of energy and infectious enthusiasm, seemingly able to play any instrument you put in front of him with grace and favour.

They have recorded three studio albums to date, Before the Sun (2016), Awake (2018) and Ink of the Rosy Morning (2022) have captivated audiences at shows and on festival stages alongside americana and folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz, Martin Simpson, Seth Lakeman and Oh Susanna.

They are true originals, that’s all there is to it. Distinctive. Innovative. Ground-breaking. Unique.
