Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler - aka The Black Feathers - are two exciting talents. They first became aware of the magic between them while collaborating on several musical projects, becoming The Black Feathers and life partners in 2012.
Americana, folk, and acoustic indie rock sensibilities co-exist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands.
It's been an incredible couple of years for the The Black Feathers. Their debut album - Soaked To The Bone - was met with critical acclaim and broke into the Top 10 in the iTunes Country chart and the Official UK Americana Chart. A live album recorded at The Convent in Stroud has also just been released and very well received.
Tours in the UK, as well as an Irish tour supporting Eddi Reader, have kept Sian and Ray busy. They could easily rest on their laurels, but instead have been spending their downtime working on new material to be released in 2018.
