The Webb Sisters

The Webb Sisters are beguiling, dynamic performers with hugely expressive voices and plangent harmonies, they are highly skilled multi-instrumentalists and songwriters of originality and intelligence. Ingénues yet thinkers, the sisters’ youthful energy and musical training combine in adventurous, lyrical and emotionally enthralling performances.

Charley and Hattie’s singing and playing (harp, guitar, mandolin, piano, drums) draw from the folk and pop traditions of Britain and the United States. The Webb Sisters have recorded three albums, building a following on their travels, achieving album, single and record of the week on iTunes and BBC Radio Two. Charley and Hattie have performed twice for Princess Anne and once for Queen Elizabeth.

The new album ‘SAVAGES’ was produced by multiple Grammy Award winning producer Peter Asher. ‘Baroque Thoughts’ (featured on ‘Savages’) won the International Music Award for ‘best Adult Contemporary Song’.

The Webb Sisters were chosen to join Leonard Cohen’s live band on his first tour in fifteen years. 247 shows were played around the world between 2008 and 2010. Two DVD and audio albums have been released documenting the musical performances of the tour, ‘Live in London’ and ‘Songs from the Road’. On the DVD ‘Live In London’, Charley and Hattie are featured on the song ‘If It Be Your Will’.

Charley and Hattie received an invitation to sing on Sting’s album ‘If On a Winter’s Night…’ and on Natalie Maines’ (of The Dixie Chicks) version of ‘God Only Knows’, which was featured on the series finale of HBO’s ‘Big Love’. The Webb Sisters have toured with Jamie Cullum, Rufus Wainwright, Jason Mraz, James Morrison, Kubb, Katie Melua, Leya and Joe Echo.

The Webb Sisters represented the United Kingdom at America’s 400th Anniversary celebrations, contributed songs to several major TV shows (such as “Cane” on CBS), and recorded a pro-peace song ‘Fortune of Soldiers’ for a Judy Collins tribute album ‘Born To The Breed’ alongside Dolly Parton and Chrissie Hynde.
