Inspired by traditional and contemporary folk music, Antoine & Owena create their own original blend of folk music that provides a feast for the ears, the heart and the feet. Combining original material with their own take on some traditional songs, this Wiltshire-based duo of multi-instrumentalists delivers an eclectic mix of songs and tunes which enthuse and entertain.
They were the winners of the 2017 Purbeck Rising competition at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival, and more recently won the award for Best Duo at the Graham Steel Music Awards 2020.
Antoine & Owena will be releasing their second studio album, “Something Out of Nothing”, on the 7th of March 2020. The album was recorded at the famous Real World Studio in August 2019 and features 10 tracks made up of original and traditional songs. The album will be available for download from Apple Music and Amazon, and as a CD from Bandcamp.com and live events.
Dai Jeffries from Folking.com had this to say about the album:
” The mix of original and traditional material is as before but the outcome is rather different. The traditional songs benefit from a more thoughtful delivery without losing any of their power and the original songs have a slightly harder edge …..The sound on Something Out Of Nothing is really very good….Antoine and Owena have made a fine album that’s even better than their debut.” – read the full review here
