Alberta-based The Raven & the Fox are releasing their eponymous debut album later this week, but you can listen to it here first!
Like their namesakes, Alberta folk duo The Raven & The Fox offer a sound with a sly, mystical edge — what they’ve described from the beginning as “love-inspired mountain music.” (To us, their sound is reminiscent of The Cowboy Junkies – a haunting voice paired with a minimalist instrumental background.)
It’s a style that singer/songwriters Julie Chang and Sean Isaac have been honing since they first collaborated in 2014, and has now reached fruition on their full-length debut album, simply entitled The Raven & The Fox.
“Our songs are inspired by two things it seems, love and landscapes,” Chang says. “Our hometown, Canmore, is situated in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. We live in a very engaged and inspired community of artists, musicians, extreme sport athletes and mountain enthusiasts. It is very easy to pull from the psychical energy of the mountains that surround us as well from the motivated, life-loving community.”
