Dust Devil Heart is an indie folk singer-songwriter duo based in Branford, CT. At the core of DDH are two women (Holley Anderson and Elise Morrison) who both write songs, sing close vocal harmonies, and play acoustic guitar and electric bass. They are sometimes joined by a pedal steel player (Spencer Luckey) and other collaborators on strings and percussion.
They have just recorded their first album of original songs, titled Dwell Time, produced by Steve Rodgers in Hamden, CT. The album will be released this winter. Dust Devil Heart’s original songs are often love songs to places and to nature (and sometimes to people), big hearted explorations of life, learning, marriage, divorce, parenting, and a record of the fight to hold tight to the things that feed our souls amidst the practical demands of life. In performance, DDH pays tribute to artists they love with covers of folks like Lucinda Williams, Indigo Girls, Leonard Cohen, Antje Duvekot, and the Avett Brothers
Sarah Dunn is showcasing their solo endeavors for the in-progress EP, Thank You. Their style has been described “Acoustic singer-songwriter, but, also kind of emo?” A multi-instrumentalist, they have accompanied others on live performances and recordings, playing piano, violin, guitar, backup vocals, and trash can percussion. Sarah was raised in Georgia, and presently resides in Hamden with their two children.
