Charm of Finches are a sister duo from Melbourne Australia who sing haunted folk tunes about love, grief and whispering trees.
Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes emerge from an eclectic musical childhood of Celtic strings and busking old-time tunes.
Their debut album Staring at the Starry Ceiling, produced by Nick Huggins of Little Lake Records and featuring the duo’s signature angelic vocal harmonies and captivating chamber folk sound, has been praised for its candour and originality and named one of the best releases of 2016 by ABC Radio National.
Their influences include Sufjan Stevens, Gillian Welch, Danish artist Agnes Obel and First Aid Kit, as well as the homegrown talent in their local Victorian folk scene.
The duo has won many awards nationally and internationally and their music has featured on Australian TV.
Charm of Finches independently released their sophomore album “Your Company” in November 2019, touring Australia widely. This album was Melbourne’s PBS Radio Album of the Week, winner of the Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album in the Independent Music Awards (IMA) and nominated for the Music Victoria Award for Best Folk Album and the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize.
