Church: Church Role: Touring Independent Artist
Story: Drakeford and Lucy-Jayne first met in 2011 in the small country of Kyrgyzstan, and later lived in the Near East for a few years, traveling and doing street performances with a missions team. They later moved back to the States where they got married, and started touring and doing music full time together as a folk/pop duo.
Made up of a Brit and an American, the world-traveling duo's music is folksy at heart with hints of pop throughout, with the finger-picking style being as clear and crisp as the vocal articulation. They manage to repeatedly deliver quality both in musical ingenuity and lyrical depth. Their first full album, “Anchors Aweigh”, received outstanding reviews and took them on tour all over the United States and Europe, performing at festivals, Universities, houses, coffee shops and everything in between. Their melodies are memorable, and the harmonies hypnotic. Their second studio album, “The Venture”, was released in 2018 and they have been touring it ever since.
