Hi everyone!

Our pledge campaign is still going strong! If you still haven't pledged, but would like to, then you have until the 10th of December! We will endeavour to get all orders out before Christmas, so please let us know if you are buying as a gift. PLEDGE HERE this weekend, we're offering pledgers an exclusive lol at the awesome EP artwork, before anyone else gets a chance!

In the meantime, we are incredibly excited to finally unleash our single, The Soldier and The Maid onto the world! This is the opening track of our EP and the one we spent the most time on in recording. We worked with the fantastic Stu Hanna who recorded and produced this track and Jolene, and mastered the whole EP. We spent a couple of days in the studio with him and the he worked his production magic and made it sound like we have never sounded before!!

The video was filmed by RodeaxLTD at the Slindon Estate in the Southdowns. Rodeo and her team did such an amazing job and the guys at the estate were so lovely and accommodating, even giving us drivers for the day! Our soldier and our maid, Kieron Tufft and Leigh-Anne Gilbert were super duper and we really love the characters that they created

We were honoured that FATEA magazine were able to give the video its first public outing, and the song its first AirPlay! The Soldier and The Maid & Jolene will now be getting wide radio play across the world, so keep your eyes and ears open for that!

The EP artwork is very nearly ready, courtesy of Elly Lucas (ellylucas.co.uk) and soon it will all be sent off to be put together, ready for our launch on the 13th of December!

We and our little team have worked so hard on this new project. We've learnt a lot of things along the way and grown as recording artists. We're so proud of the finished product and could not be more grateful to everyone who has offered support along the way. So thank you so much to everyone who has pledged so far, come to our gigs, pre ordered the EP, told their friends about us, bought our album, or just said lovely things to us! It really does mean everything and we wouldn't be doing what we're doing without you guys!!

So follow this link to the FATEA WEBSITE and check out our brand new video! Enjoy and, if you get a chance, let us know what you think of it :)

Finally, our next gig is on the introducing stage at the amazing Great British Folk Festival in Butlins, Skegness NEXT FRIDAY! We're super honoured to be joining a line up that includes Fotheringay, Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band, Jim Moray, Sam Carter and many more! Details HERE
So much love
