We Mavericks have just been nominated again for Artist of the Year in the Australian Folk Music Awards Duo/Group/Ensemble category.
I am delighted to welcome the splendid We Mavericks to the agency. Their musical skill with fiddle, guitars and mandolin support two excellent voices. They write their own songs, but also sing from the tradition in their edgy upbeat style.
"The glorious harmonies and touching melodies of We Mavericks…Together they craft exquisite folk music, evoking spirits originating from Appalachia to Alba” - Ambient Light, New Zealand 2022
They pack mighty punches but bring songs to heal your scars. Featuring only a foot-stomping Kiwi and a small-town Australian, We Mavericks make music that is way more than the sum of its parts.
Lindsay Martin’s masterful violin, mandolin and vocals meet Victoria Vigenser’s mesmerising voice and guitar work, in driving rhythms and a connectedness you must see to believe. They deliver an organic blend of lyrical pop and trad folk, but with soulful Americana harmonies, and Celtic roots running deeply throughout the instrumentation. They truly are as dynamic as they look.
“He has a familiar soft folk tenor. She has a strong ringing tone with muscle behind a clear crystalline voice… The violin cries for her and the harmony vocals are divine… We Mavericks are a serendipitous pairing…” - 13th Floor, New Zealand 2022
Here's a short live set from this year's National Festival (Australia)
A certain trademark tightness and their gritty, evocative performances have seen them on a steep and fast rise to the big stages in both home countries, coupled witrh a welter of awards nominations.
