Oregon duo, The Hackles impressed with their debut album, but it was the follow-up, 2019’s A Dobritch Did As A Dobritch Should, that established them well beyond the shores of the USA. In the UK, The Daily Express called it “gorgeous Americana,” while RnR magazine said it was “magnificent.” Folk Radio UK praised the “intelligent, highly melodic song-writing.”
Kati Claborn and Luke Ydstie, both also core members of the band Blind Pilot, impressed with their sumptuous vocal harmonies and writing skills, confirming them as a major force on the Americana/indie-folk circuit.
Hailing from the oldest settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, Astoria on the big Columbia River, they are close friends and collaborators of another well-known local personality, American folk hero, Michael Hurley, with whom they perform on a regular basis. He invited them to contribute a track on the tribute album, Snockument, which was issued in 2021.
The Hackles, now a trio, have a new album coming, and a couple of tracks are written by close friend and long-time auxiliary member Halli Anderson of the band, River Whyless, who joins them here for their debut UK tour.
