Wistful British folk duo Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker follow up make their Rough Trade debut with Overnight, their third album overall. It follows their sparsely arranged four-song EP Through the Clouds, which appeared earlier in 2016, offering a brief glimpse of the forthcoming set. Like each of the duo's releases, Overnight works in a misty milieu of hushed folk delicacy with Clarke's pearly voice weaving around the tasteful guitar work of her counterpart.
Award winning singer Josienne Clarke with equally award winning guitarist Ben Walker. Josienne tells you about their autumn tour with special mention of middle section dates- 27th KENILWORTH CASTLE 28th KINGSKERSWELL 29th SHELLEY THEATRE, BOURNEMOUTH 30th OSMINGTON VILLAGE HALL, WEYMOUTH.
Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker will release their debut album for Rough Trade, ‘Overnight,’ on October 14th, 2016. The album which is self-produced, follows their Rough Trade debut, the ‘Through The Clouds’ EP, which was released earlier this year. Overnight’ is their most ambitious record to date, focusing on Clarke’s extraordinary voice and lyrics, and Walker’s prodigious guitar-playing and arranging; the album features panoramic orchestration by an eclectic core of acclaimed musicians, including strings, horns, piano, double bass, and drums. The album’s lilting first single, The Waning Crescent, is almost an answer in ballad form to the portrayal of the moon in traditional and popular music as a soothing, confessional, companion (. Coming at the darkest and stillest point in the album, the song – like the moon – brings a reassuring lightness.

Together, Clarke and Walker, both 34, are one of Britain’s biggest folk acts, with five albums of beautifully textured, twilit songs, many years of treading the dusty boards of folk sessions and festivals, and a coveted Radio 2 folk award for best duo between them. When they won the Radio 2 award, they had to play live in front of 1,500 people, and be filmed. Walker was in an indie band when he and Clarke met. He loved Dire Straits as a child and Interpol as a teenager, and still obsesses over the electronica of Warp Records and Jon Hopkins. They became a duo in 2011, releasing a collection of traditional songs, The Seas Are Deep, a tool to make more people listen to them, more than anything else, they confess. For Overnight, the pair went to Rockfield Studios to expand their sound further, and the mix of styles on the record is well served by the rich, winter-lit production.
