The debut offering from english husband and wife duo Trevor Moss and Hannah Lou flows with a feeling of history and intimacy, whilst with elegant poise they glide their board on the wave of modern folk music.

The self titled album carries elements of a much earlier folk styling and mixes this with dynamic modern song writing. In all honesty it may be too folky for some fans of the current revival, but equally by the very same merit could bridge the gap between the traditionalists and the adventurous genre-crossing new wave.

Beautiful, gentle harmonies and intricate musical structure remind of the magical tones of Nick Drake, which also flow in and out of more bouncy sounds and quirky lyrics, reminiscent of acoustic moments from the recordings of everyone from Woodie Guthrie, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones to even Jack Johnson.

With Romeo Stodart (The Magic Numbers) and Danny Wilson (Danny and the Champions of the World/Grand Drive) attributing their playing and producing talents on the album, Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou look set to successfully join the ranks of acclaimed modern folk artists sweeping the airwaves with their charming and earthy sounds.

The album is released through UK American Label Loose Music on 15th March 2010.
