The duo comes from the legendary British trip-hop band Morcheeba, which was formed in 1995 when the Godfrey brothers decided to go out on their own after co-producing David Byrne’s album Feelings. After hooking up with the multi-talented vocalist Skye Edwards at a party, Morcheeba shoot for the stars and signed to the funky China label. Following the release of two EPs (Trigger Hippie and Music That We Hear), the band issued its debut album, Who Can You Trust? It appeared on the American Discovery label in late 1996, and Morcheeba toured the U.S. with Live and Fiona Apple the following year. Big Calm followed in 1998 and Fragments of Freedom was released two years later. Charango appeared in 2002 and featured guest appearances from Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner and rapper Slick Rick. A year later, the greatest hits collection Parts of the Process was released and Skye Edwards left the band. Former Noonday Underground vocalist Daisy Martey joined the group for 2005’s The Antidote, a more acoustic album that mixed psychedelia with Burt Bacharach-styled pop. Dive Deep (2008) took a marked turn toward folk, with the Godfreys using a number of vocalists who included Thomas Dybdahl, Judie Tzuke, and Bradley Burgess. But original vocalist Skye Edwards returned to the fold for 2010’s Blood Like Lemonade and remained for the 2013 release Head Up High.
Skye Edwards, Morcheeba’s singer/composer and Ross Godfrey, guitarist/composer/producer are working on a new album for their Morcheeba fans. It will have the signature mix of influences from trip hop, blues and down tempo soul.
Skye has one of the most recognisable voices on the planet, hearing her smooth, effortless tone on tracks like The Sea or Otherwise, teamed with Ross Godfrey’s psychedelic guitar is an unforgettable, spellbinding invitation to an aural voyage! Their album will be released Spring 2016 and supported by a world tour. Join them on their journey.
SKYE & ROSS FROM MORCHEEBA are available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
