The Coronavirus COVID-19 has changed everything. None of us know how long for. What we do know is that, like many people, we self-employed musicians have lost most, and in some cases all of our means of earning a living for the foreseeable future.   So, we have to innovate, perform live-streamed gigs, release new songs, remotely-collaborate with artists we never usually have the time to work with and accept the kind support of those of you out there who love music and have a few spare coins.

Dusky Sunday is an indie-folk duo comprising of established musicians Fern Teather and Sam Thurlow. Drawing comparisons to Slow Club, Gabrielle Aplin, and Fleetwood Mac, Dusky Sunday stands out from similar bands and artists with their unique combination of catchy, lyrical songs played on acoustic guitar and hand-percussion – topped with Fern’s smooth yet powerful voice, and tailed with Sam’s bassy backing vocals.
