Album Notes
The harmony that rings from the acoustic duo of Sparky & The Ancient Mariner is designed to invite the audience to a new experience.  With great care and construction of arrangements, the duo strives to lift the spirits of listeners and soften the oft negativity of an otherwise monotone world.

The duo (Tracey and Benjamin) first met in February of 2014 and quickly found a unique style of vocal harmonies that they could translate to a variety of musical styles.  Since that time, they have developed a signature sound that they now apply to cover and original songs alike.  Their overall sound is what they have dubbed "bluesy-grass", as it has been a challenge to find the exact genre that encompasses their musical style and arrangements.

As one audience member stated, "What harmonies and hillbilly soul..." The duo likes this phrase, as it expresses a bit of their sound in just a few words..

That being said, there are those songs that have a more contemporary folk feel to them, and a few originals that are altogether difficult to categorize.

The duo's goal is to put a song in your heart and a spring in your step - enjoy!
