Hope In High Water

Americana Duo

'Never Settle’, the new album from Hope In High Water, encapsulates the wanderlust and sense of movement that carries through their music and their lives. Both spent much of their childhood travelling, Carly with her dad’s work that pulled her from place to place and country to country and Josh with his Blues musician parents who showed him the joys of a bustling bar on a Saturday night. These experiences left a longing in the pair that would lead both to independently start bands and tour the UK and Europe throughout their early twenties.

The music itself draws heavily on the lonesome, soulful influence of America’s musical traditions, reminiscent at times of the field songs of the South or the Blues of the Delta and combining this with modern Folk/Americana/Country influences such as Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope and Andrew Combs. 

Although heavily influenced by these traditions, Hope In High Water are acutely aware of their own roots, living in the urban town of Milton Keynes in middle England, a million miles from Route 66 or the romanticism of the American landscape. Instead they create something firmly grounded in their own experiences of the world and relevant to modern Folk fans.

With a heavy focus on sincerity and an awareness of conveying the intensity and intimacy of a live show, Hope In High Water have created an album that they are proud to share and are excited to be heading out on tour to promote in May. They share a hope that in a music industry full of idealised versions and un-realistic aspirations, a glimpse of vulnerability, honesty but also hope and appreciation for the simpler joys, may provide some with a renewed sense of interest in the UK’s burgeoning Folk scene. Regardless, they will continue to find happiness in travelling to lots of weird and wonderful places, feeling very blessed to be able to play the music that they love.
