Critically acclaimed husband & wife duo Shovels & Rope return to the UK for a string of shows in February, bringing their signature raw energy in support of their new studio album Little Seeds.
“Thrilling music… spontaneity, spirit and freedom blow throughout the duo’s songs” MOJO
“They mix country, folk, punk, and rock together seamlessly, and have been releasing gorgeous “alt-country” albums years before Kacey Musgraves and Sturgill Simpson were household names.” NOISEY
Little Seeds, the electrifying New West Records bow by Shovels and Rope, finds the award-winning South Carolina duo of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst exploring fresh dimensions in their sound with a brace of bold, candid, highly personal new songs.
The 12-song collection, produced by the band’s own Michael Trent at the couple’s home studio in Charleston, succeeds 2014’s Swimmin’ Time and 2012’s O’ Be Joyful; the latter title garnered the twosome Americana Music Awards for Song of the Year (for “Birmingham”) and Emerging Artist of the Year.
