The Grahams

The Americana duo are travelling troubadours with a desire to build on foundations laid by their musical predecessors.

Alyssa and Doug Graham draw on American folk culture, experimenting further on their new record. Their music is inspired by journeys on rail, river and along Route 66. Doug's masterful resonator slide-work and harmonies fuel Alyssa's locomotive voice and driving guitar chords.
