Vocalists Torey Russell and Rachel Russell teamed up with DC-based producer Kent Heckaman in the summer of 2010 and the three collaborated to record songs that gravitate toward “non-traditional” folk tunes featuring the beautiful and often layered vocals of the Russell sisters.  Sonnet Cottage released “Another Time” in 2012, and their debut album received critical acclaim for its meticulously recorded, melancholy acoustic songs.  Many radio stations paid tribute as well, including spins on Sirius/XM Radio.

In 2012 Sonnet Cottage added the talents of guitarist Buddy Speir, and their forthcoming sophomore release “Half Written Story” now features the ethereal guitar textures that Speir often creates while not losing the acoustic structure from which the band was born. 

“Beautiful guitars and strings, gorgeous female vocals, I’d like to hear more from this artist!” – Eric McLellan, A & R, Sire Records/Warner Bros

“The tender sound crafted here is something special, with a delightful blend of harmony and narrative quality putting it into the Sarah McLachlan/Pamela Cole tradition.” – NeuFutur Magazine

“Two otherworldly voices slide delicately over the songs. They create a fragile, sometimes unearthly soundscape that entices you into its melodic harmony. This is Sonnet Cottage.”  Dan Holland, Folk Words

Sonnet Cottage will release Half Written Story on June 27, 2015.  The acoustic simplicity of Rachel’s songwriting shines through on several songs and as before producer Heckaman adds carefully crafted instrumentation to offer music that both alternative folk and indie fans will find very appealing.   

Half Written Story is scheduled for release June 27, 2015. Pre-order it here!
