The Black Feathers, made up of Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler first became aware of the magic between them while collaborating on several musical projects, becoming The Black Feathers and life partners in 2012.
Americana, Folk, and Acoustic Indie Rock sensibilities coexist comfortably in their musical world, with Hughes’ guitar work buoying the kind of harmonies often only heard in family bands. Their music quickly draws the interest of listeners, but it is the stage chemistry that will keep them riveted.
Having already built up a loyal following in the UK, The Black Feathers have been spreading their wings across the US. They have performed at Philadelphia Folk Festival, AmericanaFest, Juan de Fuca Festival, and Summer of 2022 at The Kate Wolf Festival and Mile of Music. They have also been awarded official showcases at the North East Regional and Far-West Folk Alliance conferences. With a new album releasing July 8.2022 a solid US west coast tour behind them and a robust east coast Fall 2022 tour these are exciting times for the duo.
The Black Feathers are proud to announce details of their second album, Angel
Dust & Cyanide. Their first full-length release since 2016, Soaked To The Bone LP, the new album finds songwriters Ray Hughes and Sian Chandler embracing the chaos of the past couple of years, calling upon a large cast of musicians to bring their beautiful new songs to life.
