The Wainwright Sisters

Songs In The Dark

MapleMusic Recordings


Released: 13th Nov 2015


2LP + download

Released: 12th Feb 2016


graceful harmonies and tender lullabies from the half sisters martha wainwright and lucy wainwright roche.

it would be impossible not to compare them to their father loudon or their respective mothers (kate mcgarrigle and suzzy roche), and while the similarities are clear (especially when covering Loudon's 'screaming issue', aboout an infant lucy) the sisters' unique take on the wainwright familiarities of charm, pathos, elegance and black humour make this far more than just another folk dynasty spin-off. "...a lovely, twilit thing, full of lullabies, folk songs and covers sung to them as children." - the guardian
