On Tuesday, October 1 , at 7:30 PM at Vaudeville Mews in Des Moines, IPR Studio One's Ben Kieffer will host a special edition of "Java Blend" with Pieta Brown and Lucie Thorne from Love Over Gold.
Love Over Gold
During the show, Ben Kieffer will chat with the Pieta and Lucie to find out more about their new project and their latest album Fall to Rise.
Hushed harmonies merge with lush guitars to define the striking sound of recently formed international duo, Love Over Gold. Singer-songwriters Pieta Brown (U.S.) and Lucie Thorne (Australia) are both artists recognized for their distinctive vocal stylings and poetic sensibilities, and together, as Love Over Gold the blend of their contrasting styles takes on a vivid life of its own.
Bringing to mind the ethereal sounds of indie acts such as Iron & Wine and Bon Iver, while subtly evoking the feel of Americana greats Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch, Love Over Gold impresses as both brand new and inexplicably familiar.
Their latest album was recorded in Pieta’s home town in Iowa. It traverses the open expanses of both continents to a place where voices, guitars and poetry meet. With spacious electric hues and driving acoustics, this new collaboration brims with an effortless natural beauty.
