Elizabeth & Jameson is an award-winning collaboration comprising two rising stars of the UK acoustic music scene. Hannah Elizabeth and Griff Jameson have joined forces to create a stunning indie-folk sound which encompasses both their individual musical backgrounds of traditional folk and folk pop/rock. Together Elizabeth & Jameson arguably offer the best of both backgrounds; this is simplistic, classic song writing at its best – a harmony-driven sound with guitar, violin, accordion and exquisite vocals.
Northern Shores & Stories, released on Friday May 22nd, is the debut studio album by Elizabeth & Jameson – a concept album inspired by the North Yorkshire coast and in particular the harbour town of Whitby, with inspiration gathered from various stories linked to the area as well as the town’s many historical figures, myths and legends both famous and lesser known. The duo’s own personal experiences also have their place within the concept, as well as simply the physical place itself which is an inspiration all on its own. Using field recordings of the physical environments they have been inspired by to enhance their song writing and storytelling, Elizabeth & Jameson have created a concept album which has the capability of transporting the listener to a very real physical place, and immersing them in that world through a varied soundscape of music, song and ambient sound.
