Gwyneth and Monko News

Folk duo Gwyneth and Monko will release their debut album next week. The band is influenced heavily by both folk and indie rock, something that is quickly evident on the debut, out on which was just dropped a couple of weeks ago.

Gwyneth and Monko formed in 2009 after Gwyneth had released her solo album Wishbone. She was looking for an accompanying musician when she stumbled onto Monko, a multi-instrumentalist. The two immediately began writing songs together while touring behind the album.

The two plan to hit the road extensively behind their self-titled release. A tour schedule is being worked up and will be out soon.
