Shovels And Rope return with a new album of "harrowing beauty and sorrow"

Alternative blues duo Shovels And Rope return with a new album, which they hope might be their strongest yet

Married couple Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, aka Shovels & Rope, have been recording together since 2008, fashioning punky country-blues and gospel from their tiny studio near Charleston, South Carolina. Since scooping up two Americana Music Association gongs in 2013 they’ve had a Billboard Top 20 album and been the subject of an award-winning documentary. Little Seeds, their fifth album, documents “a harrowing couple of years, full of beauty and sorrow”.
