Evocative, otherworldly, and utterly captivating, Across The Sea defy categorisation, inhabiting a place where the boundlessness of the imagination transcends genre limitations and conventions. A breathtaking synthesis of the haunting, siren-like vocals of classically trained soprano Hannah Katy Lewis and the dynamic, unorthodox and experimental guitar style of Pete Ferguson, their mesmerisingly unique sound is wildly eclectic, fiercely inventive and singularly distinctive.
The duo’s much-anticipated second album, the nine-track, three-part concept piece The Wayfarer Triptych, was released in October 2021 to widespread acclaim, being heralded as a “masterpiece in storytelling through the medium of music” and “an avant-garde, genre-bending audio film that thrives while listening to it in its entirety.” An artistic endeavour near-cinematic in its scope and ambition, the album saw the duo push every aspect of their signature sound to the extreme in order to create an immense work of astonishing musicality, vivid storytelling, dizzying virtuosity, and staggering emotional resonance.
Described as “something to get drawn into and swept away with”, an Across The Sea live performance is an immersive, spellbinding experience unlike anything else: sonically expansive, musically dramatic, and visually transfixing. Playing over 200 shows since their inception the pair have enchanted audiences at venues throughout the South, and festivals such as Victorious, SarkFest, Wickham and Rhythmtree, earning a reputation as one of the most tirelessly active, startlingly original and genuinely innovative acts on the live circuit.
