Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson: Hungrytown
After more than fifteen years of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson--otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown--have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting: Its great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favor of honesty and to prove that you dont have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of, writes Jedd Beaudoin of Popmatters.

Lyricist Rebecca Hall is credited with compositions that sound as timeless as any traditional songs (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist/husband Ken Anderson is lauded for his remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytowns gorgeous vocal harmonies (Folk and Roots, UK).

Hungrytown's introduction to folk music came when a close friend--who died young due to a tragic misdiagnosis--entrusted to them her collection of 1960s folk albums and her guitar (which has since been featured on all of their albums). Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Andersons flair for musical arrangement. Soon afterwards, Hall released two solo albums, Sings! (1999) and Sunday Afternoon (2002), both produced by Anderson. In the winter of 2003, the duo quit their boring desk jobs, moved to the green hills of Vermont, and decided to pursue a full-time career as touring musicians.

They released their first CD, Hungrytown, in 2008; Any Forgotten Thing in 2011; and Further West in 2015. The couple continue to spend more than half of each year on the road, especially roads in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown's music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including Comedy Central's The Daily Show, IFC's Portlandia and Netflix's Lady Dynamite.

Their third and latest album, Further West, made the top 10 on the American Folk DJ charts for two months, and at least 14 "Best of the Year" lists. "Not only is this one of the best albums of 2015, it's one of the best of the decade," proclaimed New York Music Daily.
