Built from heartbreak, forged on love. Sarah Humphreys and Kris Morris met and decided to make a life and music together as Eagle & The Wolf. There’s nothing fancy or fake here, just open hearts, great songs and the truth. Together they are truly magical.
?“Two of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters, indie-pop goddess Sarah Humphreys and alt-country troubadour Kris Morris, met, fell in love and now they’re making beautiful folk music together as Eagle & The Wolf.”?– Timber & Steel??
“Separately Sarah and Kris are two of my favourite singer/songwriters ever but the first time I heard their voices together I was taken to a whole other place! The blend was like nothing I had ever heard before and broke my heart in the most beautiful way”?– Kasey Chambers??
Their self titled album, Eagle & The Wolf, co-produced by the duo alongside Syd Green (Matt Tonks, Dirty Lucy, Iota) was recorded in an old farm house in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia. You can hear every breath, the crackle of the fire, and birds calling in the distance. It’s as raw and heartfelt as it get.
Already Eagle & The Wolf have shared stages with the likes of The Blind Boys of Alabama (USA), Phil and Dave Alvin (USA), Kasey Chambers, Charlie Parr (USA), Kim Richie (USA), Archie Roach, Katie Noonan and Kevin Bennett.
“…a reminder of why Gram and Emmylou’s brief partnership still resonates 40 years on.”– SMH
“…their music freely ranging the gamut of roots music, from blues and soul to folk and bluegrass…. exactly the kind of original amalgamation that the Americana genre was invented to provide a home for. Palpably led by instinct, Morris and Humphreys hit a collaborative sweet spot on each and every one of these ten songs, their voices entwined like they were born for that purpose alone.” – Rhythms Magazine
The lead single “Mama, Son and The Holy Ghost” has had a huge response, premiering on Triple J’s Roots’N’All, being playlisted on Double J and reaching Number 1 on the Amrap Regional Chart. The moody, underwater based film clip (directed by Joel Noble) has also been featured on RAGE and CMC.
