The Webb Sisters release Savages

Proper Records (PRPCD 079) – released May 9, 2011. New CD package includes videos of ‘Savages’ and ‘Blue And You’
CD launch concert at London Bloomsbury Theatre Sun May 15

The Webb Sisters – who won widespread acclaim on the Leonard Cohen world tour – will finally release their long-awaited new album, Savages, in the UK on Proper Records on May 9.

The new CD includes several songs written by the girls, plus their version of Leonard Cohen’s ‘If It Be Your Will’. They perform a special one-off CD launch concert at London Bloomsbury Theatre on Sunday May 15 (box office tel: 0844 844 0444).

Born into a family of musicians in Kent, England, Charley and Hattie are The Webb Sisters. Beguiling, dynamic performers with hugely expressive voices and plangent harmonies, they are highly skilled multi-instrumentalists and songwriters of originality and intelligence.

Ingénues yet thinkers, the sisters’ youthful energy and musical training combine in adventurous, lyrical and emotionally enthralling performances.

Their singing and playing (harp, guitar, mandolin and more) draw from the folk and pop traditions of Britain and the United States. The Webb Sisters have recorded two albums, building a following in the UK and achieving album and record of the week on iTunes and BBC Radio Two.

The Webb Sisters represented the UK at America’s 400th Anniversary celebrations, contributed songs to several major TV shows (most recently “Cane” on CBS), recorded a new song for a Judy Collins tribute album alongside the likes of Dolly Parton and Rufus Wainwright, and have performed on major concert tours with artists such as Jamie Cullum, James Morrison and Jason Mraz.

Most recently, The Webb Sisters were honoured to be touring and singing with one of their idols, Leonard Cohen, and have recorded their new album, Savages, with multiple Grammy-winning producer, Peter Asher.
