Drakeford are a husband and wife singer-songwriter duo based in Chattanooga, TN. Made up of a Brit and an American, the world-traveling duo’s music is folksy at heart with hints of pop throughout, with the finger-picking style being as clear and crisp as the vocal articulation. Music flows through Drakeford’s veins…passion and zeal are etched into the music they create. They manage to repeatedly deliver quality both in musical ingenuity and lyrical depth. Drakeford’s voice is direct and unashamed of the words he sings, and his wifes softer approach compliments him well, their voices keeping perfect pace at every note and word. The melodies are memorable, and the harmonies hypnotic.
Drakeford and Lucy-Jayne first met in 2011 in the small country of Kyrgyzstan, and later lived in the Turkey for a few years, traveling and doing street performances with a musical group. They later moved back to the States where they got married, and recorded their first full-length album (Anchors Aweigh). They started touring all over the States and Europe as full time musicians. Their highly anticipated second full length album, The Venture, came out in June.
