Drakeford are a husband and wife singer-songwriter duo based in Tennessee. Made up of a Brit and an American, the world-traveling duo’s music is folksy at heart with hints of pop throughout, with finger-picking style being as clear and crisp as the vocal articulation. They manage to repeatedly deliver quality both in musical ingenuity and lyrical depth. Their first full album, Anchors Aweigh, received outstanding reviews and took them on tour all over the United States and Europe, performing at festivals, Universities, houses, co ee shops and everything in between. Their melodies are memorable, and the harmonies hypnotic. Their second studio album, The Venture, was released in 2018 and has more depth and growth both lyrically and melodically than some artists achieve their whole career.
Drakeford and Lucy-Jayne first met in 2011 in the small country of Kyrgyzstan and later lived in the Near East for a few years, traveling and doing street performances with a musical group. They later moved back to the States where they got married, and started touring and doing music full time together.
