Acoustic folk duo Steve & Ginie Jackson got to know each other during a joint concert of their respective previous groups. Together, they started to dream about traveling and playing music, and they fell in love. Their common dream came true, and a tour led to their debut album Leaving For Today in 2017. After the EP Dance Away in 2019, the couple from Montreal (Canada) are back with a new full-length, Colder Than The Sea. It has 12 uplifting songs with guitar and mandolin, songs that are all easy to embrace. You can hear from the lyrics how happy the two musicians are together still (“There might be 7 billion people, but all I see is you”), but that feeling is made even stronger by the way they play (incredible mutual chemistry) and sing (more heartfelt is hardly possible). Both vocally and instrumentally they complement each other perfectly, and how nice it is that they want to share their happiness and skills with us in such fine music.
Colder Than The Sea is out now digitally and on CD through Thousand Islands Records.
