Hope In High Water
Hope In High Water are a duo from Milton Keynes, UK whose distinctly British take on acoustic Americana has captivated audiences across the UK since early 2014. The pair incorporate folk, blues and country into their compositions, delivering what Rock’n’Reel Magazine describe as ‘exuberant songs performed with passion and intensity’. Inspired by the LPs of Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt and Howlin’ Wolf – Josh and Carly seek to reinterpret American sounds of the 20th century for 21st century Britain.
Both drawing their roots from the punk scene, Hope In High Water are an unlikely pair to be pushing the frontiers of the UK Americana/folk scene. Yet both have felt the pull of the travelling lifestyle to which they were exposed at an early age, Josh with his blues musician parents and Carly with a father whose work pulled the family from place to place. This inspired a wanderlust in the pair that would open their minds to the sounds of far off cultures and ultimately draw them together.
