Shovels & Rope is comprised of two formerly solo singer-songwriters, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent. Partners in music and in romance, the Charleston, South Carolina-based duo combine their individual songwriting chops, a whole lot of chemistry, and a variety of influences to make a rare, hard-to-resist musical boil.
The husband-and-wife duo won a pair of 2013 Americana Music Awards on the strength of their second record, O' Be Joyful. Their highly-anticipated new album, Swimmin' Time, will be released on August 25, but you can stream it in the player above until then.
