The Debut Album from Dusky Sunday
Singer-songwriting duo Dusky Sunday, are celebrating the first year of officially performing together, after signing a record deal with GingerDog Records and recording their debut album Gradients - produced by renowned Record Producer, Kevin Duncan, and released on Saturday 1st June 2019 at The John Peel Centre in Stowmarket.
The duo, who already had a brilliant following as individual established artists Fern Teather and Sam Thurlow, have recently spent time in the Top 10 of the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart for their debut single Oceans and additional single release Make It Rain - both taken from the new album, and featured on local and national radio. Though Sam previously accompanied Fern’s solo music on percussion, his newly-discovered singing-songwriting talents caused a natural evolution of the
pair’s sound over the past year - resulting in Dusky Sunday.
‘A stunning duo who’re making big waves with their playing and songwriting.’
- Stephen ‘Foz’ Foster, BBC Radio Suffolk
‘What are Dusky Sunday? Intricate finger-style and strummed guitar, detailed and sympathetic percussion and Fern’s flawless voice-of-an-angel floats and weaves through it all, underpinned by Sam’s breathy Baritone just at the right moments. It’s pop music, but also folk, roots, world, singer-songwriter(s)… and all of those at once, formed into thoughtful songs of love and life.’ - David Booth
The official launch of Dusky Sunday’s debut album took place in their home town of Stowmarket, and gave fans the opportunity to listen to the new album completely live - alongside a full band for one night only. The John Peel Centre holds a special place in their hearts, not only as a venue they have frequented over the years, but because of the man it’s named after, ‘the most important man in music for about a dozen years’, John Peel - and his never-ending passion for showcasing emerging talent.
