In 2012, the musical worlds of Brian Claflin and Ellie Grace collided in the mountains of Asheville, NC and the powerful writing partnership of Claflin & Grace was born. Many years and miles later, their debut duo recording has come into the world. This full-length album is a true collaboration and the natural outpouring of two lives steeped in music from birth.
A breathtaking second CD that was truly worth the wait! This recording breaks new ground, while staying true to the stunning harmonies, roots-based arrangements, and magical touch that define Leela and Ellie’s music. Produced by Leela and Ellie, this CD features nine compelling originals and two traditional songs.
“This second CD from sisters Leela and Ellie Grace is a smart and harmonious set…with a bright sound and an uplifting outlook. Their blend of complementary mountain-clear voices recalls the sound of groups like the Wailin’ Jennies and Uncle Earl, and the arrangements featuring mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and guitar also place them firmly in the modern American roots realm.” — Dirty Linen
This beautiful debut duo recording is truly a culmination of a lifetime of making music! Produced by Pete Sutherland, this CD features an exciting mix of original, traditional, and cover songs.
“Leela and Ellie Grace rush in as a breath of fresh air to folk music, creating a musically infectious CD full of great songs, thrilling harmonies, and convincing performance.” –Rich Warren
