Land and Salt Release 'Surely I Have Sailed' Ahead of New Album

Aug 28 2020

British born duo Land and Salt release their new song 'Surely I Have Sailed (live)' on Friday 28th August, taken from the forthcoming album 'Here Come The Gospel Folk'.


The song's video is the first in a series entitled 'The Umber Sessions' which will be released on YouTube alongside the audio on all streaming platforms. "After having to cancel our live dates this year, due to lockdown, we decided to make this series which is the nearest to 'live' that we can offer for now", explains the duo.

Land and Salt drive home the earthiness of their title, being motivated to offer up truth through the age-old craft of song. They describe themselves as songwriters who use the “tools of their journey” - blending traditional gospel, folk, blues and soul along the way. After an early career in the British folk and acoustic scene, husband and wife Charlie and Marie have come together with two very distinct sounds and the motivation of authenticity.

Fingerpicking blues and folk style guitar blended with Marie's soulful, driving voice has created a succinct, heartfelt power to their work. A raw open sound that could very well transport you to that very room.

They are well rooted in the old sounds of great musicians such as Reverend Gary Davies, Rosetta Tharpe, Davey Graham, Bert Jansch, Sandy Denny and Aretha Franklin. But their writing has become the pivot of their music. They write with truth, with the purpose of bringing Good News and a message of hope, driven by their deep sense of faith.
