In the grand tradition of The Special Relationship, State Of The Union combines the talents of America and England, producing an end result that is sure to delight fans of hook-laden songs, fiery and emotional guitar playing and soulful vocals.

Tapping into a multitude of influences, from Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash to Blind Lemon Jefferson, the wide open Fenlands and the frenetic buzz of London. This is a masterclass in songwriting, showing off the talents of bluesy Americana stalwart Brooks Williams and cult British singer-songwriter Boo Hewerdine to full effect.

“Listen to their cover of Petshop Boys’ Rent and you will hear perfectly what an exciting mix raw American acoustic slide guitar and English literate pop can achieve.”
