Singer-songwriters Pieta Brown (U.S.) and Lucie Thorne (Australia) are both artists recognized for their distinctive vocal stylings and poetic sensibilities, and together, as LOVE OVER GOLD, the blend of their contrasting styles takes on a vivid life of its own.
The pair met during Pieta’s first tour of Australia, and became fast friends and fans of each other’s work. Now, just two and a half years later, as LOVE OVER GOLD they present Fall To Rise.
Recorded in Pieta’s home town in Iowa, Fall to Rise traverses the open expanses of both continents to a place where voices, guitars and poetry meet.
Bringing to mind the ethereal sounds of indie acts such as Iron & Wine and Bon Iver, while subtly evoking the feel of Americana greats Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch, LOVE OVER GOLD impresses as both brand new and inexplicably familiar. Spanning various borders and many miles, stemming from an unspoken musical understanding and chemistry, this new collaboration resonates with a poignant and natural beauty.
