The band is made up of singer/songwriters Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler. Having played together for many years in various projects, they decided to break away and collaborate as a duo, writing and performing their own material.
Inspired by advice given to them by Youth [Martin Glover, producer of Dido and the Orb], they set off in search of ancient melodies as a base to build a sound that later became The Black Feathers, drawing their influences from a number of high-quality wells; Americana rubbing shoulders with folk, and edgy rock sensibilities peeking through the tight-as-blood harmonies.
Since their debut show in May 2012, The Black Feathers have been busy touring the country, enticing and captivating audiences as they go. This past year the duo released their first studio EP recording, working with James Towler at Wincraft Studios, Richard Neuberg at Strawhouse Studios, and John Dent at Loud Mastering.
