ACROSS THE SEA
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.
Their critically-acclaimed first album Infinite Worlds was released in 2018, featuring on HMV Brighton’s recommended list and being lauded by a diverse range of outlets as a startlingly original debut. Playing over 150 shows since their inception, the pair have earned a reputation as one of the most genuinely innovative acts on the live circuit, enchanting audiences at venues throughout the south and festivals such as Victorious, Wickham and Rhythmtree.
After 2 years of meticulous crafting, Across The Sea unveiled their much-anticipated second album The Wayfarer Triptych in 2021. A nine-track concept piece near-cinematic in its scope and ambition, the album sees 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.
"Brimming with complex musical ideas and literary concepts, Across The Sea will challenge you to consider where one genre ends and another begins." - Alistair Goodwin, Wickham Festival
