Ian Williams and Katie Mosehauer are Glass Heart String Choir, a classically-influenced duo that write emotionally-charged, cinematic songs. Their music is rooted in the fraught and introspective narratives woven into Ian's lyrics and melodies, with each song colored by varying soundscapes of violins, viola, cello, harp, piano, harmoniums, and organ, which are all composed, performed, and recorded by Katie. Their combined creative efforts yield songs that are intense, dramatic, and moving, and have been compared to everything from Jeff Buckley and Radiohead to classical opera.
In the summer of 2010, Oklahoma native Adam Howard took on title of the Duke of Norfolk. Heavily inspired by Irish traditional music, bluegrass music, and the London-based folktronic band Tunng, Howard's music aimed from the start to look forward as well as backwards. His first release, The Lazy Sunshine EP (March 2011), drew primarily on bluegrass influences; as he wrote more and recorded more, the modern dripped in.
Interested in electronic music and generally in manipulating audio, Howard moved to Edinburgh in the autumn of 2014 to study sound design at the University of Edinburgh. Through busking and countless pub gigs, he quickly won a loyal support base there. He performed on Scottish television and radio, played for the BBC's at the fringe festival, headlined a sold-out show at one of Edinburgh's top venues, toured around Ireland, Scotland, & continental Europe, and was named an "Artist on the Rise" by Relix Magazine.
After the death of his father in the Autumn of 2015, Howard withdrew for a time to the world of grief. Three years later, he releases the result of his wandering with death & doubt in the form of his second full-length album, Attendre et Espérer (translated 'Wait & Hope').
