Hattie and Charlie Webb - The Webb Sisters - are an English duo who are currently in the midst of a very long Leonard Cohen tour. 1 April sees the release of their new EP, When Will You Come Home, which features some new songs from them plus two versions of Cohen’s Show Me The Place. They are available for interview by phone, skype or e-mail.
Born into a family of musicians in Kent, England, Charley and Hattie are dynamic performers with expressive voices and plangent harmonies; they are also are multi-instrumentalists and songwriters of originality and intelligence. Ingénues yet thinkers, the Webb Sisters create enthralling live performances.
The duo's singing and playing (harp, guitar, mandolin, piano, drums) draw from the folk and pop traditions of Britain and the United States. They 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.
Two DVD and audio albums have been released documenting the musical performances of the Leonard Cohen tours, 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.
“There's a reason Leonard Cohen, for whom Charley and Hattie Webb sing backup, refers to them as "the sublime Webb Sisters." Instant converts cheered and whistled for their spine-tingling, deadly-precise harmonies.” - Montreal Gazette
