Joined in life and song, the ballad of Americana duo the W Lovers began in 2011 when New Zealand native and singer-songwriter Fleur Jack first met fellow musician Wesley Wood while touring the United States and Canada. The Washington-based couple recently celebrated two milestones: their third wedding anniversary and the debut of their first music video.
Sweeping single “Canyon Wind” is as much an ode to the Wyoming landscape as a couple’s enduring love. Just as there’s peace to be found in the marvels of nature, there’s comfort in the close proximity of a life partner. “Canyon Wind” manages to be both intimate and sprawling, a polished exercise in restraint.
Appropriately the song’s video clip (shot by Lance Wells) features the travels and artistic triumphs of the W Lovers. As the pair gear up for a forthcoming album release, enjoy the duo’s cozy harmonies and gently winding instrumentation.
