Cornwall based indie duo, Our Atlantic Roots (Mac and Laura Johnston) bring an uplifting blend of American and British alternative folk, with harmonies that are rich and dynamic.
Mac’s country bluegrass roots add a popular authentic southern vibe to many songs, with the more folk-inspired influence coming from Laura’s side of the family being English and Irish.
The husband/wife duo met in Asheboro, North Carolina in August 2012. Just a few weeks after meeting, they wrote their first song together and straight away people commented on the way their voices and styles complimented each other. The coming months sparked a flame that would turn into quite the adventure. In April 2014 the duo married and relocated to the UK. September 2017 saw the release of Mac and Laura’s debut EP ‘First Light’ recorded with award-winning folk producer Andy Bell. The duo's new EP 'Little Bird' will be released in September 2019, with single and title track 'Little Bird' being released on the 14th June 2019.
