Eagle & The Wolf to join Hayes Carll on Australian Dates

Eagle & The Wolf to join Hayes Carll on Australian Dates
With their debut single ‘Mama, Son and The Holy Ghost’ hitting #1 on the AMRAP Charts Eagle & The Wolf have attracted plenty of admirers over the past few months. After sharing stages with the likes of Charlie Parr, Corey Harris and Kasey Chambers, the duo of Sarah Humphreys and Kristen Lee Morris have been handpicked to open for Hayes Carll, one of the great modern day songsmiths in Melbourne and Sydney.
Their self titled album, ‘Eagle & The Wolf’, is as raw and heartfelt as it gets and the performances are stunning. Released in March the album has received rave reviews from Rhythms Magazine, Rolling Stone and Sydney Morning Herald to name but a few. The duo are set to release their new single ‘Hips’ in the coming weeks. A song Kris describes as “the sexiest hillbilly hoe down you’re ever likely to hear”.
Eagle & The Wolf will also be part of the bill at The Morrison Hotel’s ‘Welcome to Morrisonville’ alongside Carll, Kinky Friedman, The Weeping Willows and Paddy McHugh on Saturday October 15 in Brisbane.
About Hayes Carll - Hayes Carll is at the forefront of a generation of American singer/songwriters. A Texas native, his style of roots-oriented songwriting has been noted for its plain-spoken poetry and sarcastic humour. He was nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for Best Country Song, and American Songwriter awarded him with Song of the Year for “Another Like You” in 2011, the same year he was nominated for Artist of the Year at the Americana Awards.
Now Hayes has returned with a powerful and raw set of songs produced by Joe Henry (Glen Hansard, Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt) entitled ‘Lovers and Leavers’. The record marks a new chapter for Hayes - he has gone through much personal change in the 5 years since his last release, and he mines the depths of these experiences on this record. Sonically, he has stripped away some of the country sounds that marked his previous records, thus highlighting his well-worn voice and placing his straightforward and heartfelt lyrics at the centre.
