The folk/Americana duo, Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage have announced their new album, Ink of the Rosy Morning which is scheduled for release on 1 April 2022
Following the success of Before the Sun (2016) and Awake (2018), both produced by David Travers-Smith in Toronto, the duo opted for an altogether different approach for their new record. They hired a quiet old schoolhouse by the sea, sat in the dining room, lit the fire, opened a bottle of wine, set up a few mics and played. Nothing pre-arranged. No big ideas. No pre-production. No thought of releasing anything from it. Nobody else around. Simply playing the songs they’ve known for years; savouring all the energy and emotion they carry.
Since emerging in 2016, Hannah & Ben 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 make music with such panache and natural chemistry it makes perfect sense.
