ITSACOUSTICA are North-East based singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Andy and Catherine Higgins. Their sound is a rich blend of ‘acousticity’ in which they draw on British and American folk, as well as classic pop influences to create a range of material that includes delicate ballads, driving bluegrass and intelligently structured longer songs.
The duo have been described as ‘consummate writers and performers’. They produce a warm full sound featuring fine vocal harmonies and show their prowess on a range of instruments including guitars, violin, accordion, mandolin and banjo.
ITSACOUSTICA’s new CD, their fifth release and fourth album length collection of original songs, is called ‘Red Sky’ and contains 13 songs written by Catherine and Andy.
‘Red Sky’, as were the previous 2 CDS, was recorded and engineered by Ron Angus at Studio One in Durham.
