About Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker

British folk duo Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker began their partnership in 2010 with Our Light Is Gone, a deeply melancholic set that recalled folk icons like Sandy Denny, Nick Drake, and Joni Mitchell. Though that album was credited to Clarke alone, it introduced Walker as her collaborator. With 2012's Homemade Heartache EP, the evenly billed duo earned the Isambard Folk Award and the FATEA Female Vocalist of the Year Award. Fire & Fortune arrived in 2013, followed by more accolades. Arriving in 2014, the chamber folk offering Nothing Can Bring Back the Hour shone further light on Walker's rich arrangements and Clarke's sweet, bell-like vocals. The duo issued the Through the Clouds EP and the full-length Overnight in 2016. ~ Timothy Monger
