Eagle & The Wolf.
Built from heartbreak, forged on love. Sarah Humphreys and Kristen Lee Morris met and decided to make a life and music together as Eagle & The Wolf. There’s nothing fancy or fake here, just open hearts, great songs and the truth. Together they are truly magical.
“Two of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters, indie-pop goddess Sarah Humphreys and alt-country troubadour Kris Morris, met, fell in love and now they’re making beautiful folk music together as Eagle & The Wolf.”
– Timber & Steel
“Separately Sarah and Kris are two of my favourite singer/songwriters ever but the first time I heard their voices together I was taken to a whole other place! The blend was like nothing I had ever heard before and broke my heart in the most beautiful way”
– Kasey Chambers
Their self titled album, Eagle & The Wolf, co-produced by the duo alongside Syd Green (Matt Tonks, Dirty Lucy, Iota) was recorded in an old farm house in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia. You can hear every breath, the crackle of the fire, and birds calling in the distance. It’s as raw and heartfelt as it get.
Already Eagle & The Wolf have shared stages with the likes of The Blind Boys of Alabama (USA), Phil and Dave Alvin (USA), Kasey Chambers, Charlie Parr (USA), Kim Richie (USA), Archie Roach, Katie Noonan and Kevin Bennett.
“…a reminder of why Gram and Emmylou’s brief partnership still resonates 40 years on.”
“…their music freely ranging the gamut of roots music, from blues and soul to folk and bluegrass…. exactly the kind of original amalgamation that the Americana genre was invented to provide a home for. Palpably led by instinct, Morris and Humphreys hit a collaborative sweet spot on each and every one of these ten songs, their voices entwined like they were born for that purpose alone.”
– Rhythms Magazine
The lead single “Mama, Son and The Holy Ghost” has had a huge response, premiering on Triple J’s Roots’N’All, being playlisted on Double J and reaching Number 1 on the Amrap Regional Chart. The moody, underwater based film clip (directed by Joel Noble) has also been featured on RAGE and CMC.
The record, Eagle & The Wolf, is out now with further tour plans to follow.
Sarah Humphreys has spent the last last ten years opening her heart as she has grown into a woman, a mother and undoubtedly one of this country’s finest singers and songwriters.
Her third album ‘New Moon’ produced by Australia’s finest, Kasey Chambers, received 4 stars from Rolling Stone Magazine who hailed it as ‘a mature, mediative offering from an Australian folk nymph, as natural and as honest as they come. Soulful & unpolished.’ Songs of love, songs of loss. Sarah is a sweet & wild woman who lays herself bare.
Kris Morris is forging a reputation as one of Australia’s finest, and most honest, country & blues musicians. His songs cut to the heart and on stage with his guitar he can tear the house down. Audiences are at once captivated and blown away. There is no-one like him. Absolute truth and passion directed through a microphone and a cranked guitar amplifier. His record RUINS, a swampy heartbreaker also produced by Kasey Chambers, has opened his music up to audiences around the country. Recently, he has shared the stage with the likes of Kasey Chambers, Bill Chambers, Jeff Lang, The Alvin Brothers (USA) and been on tour with The Fumes.
