Boyd Meets Girl

15 July


Boyd Meets Girl pairs Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd with American cellist Laura Metcalf. Songs of Love & Despair is the second album from the husband-and-wife duo; an album of love, despair and some things in between.

Largely conceived, arranged, rehearsed and recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic, Songs of Love & Despair contains the music that we were drawn to during this time – a time of unprecedented stillness and solitude, travelling at most a few kilometres from home for months on end. This collection of repertoire is half love, half longing; from the delicate beauty of Debussy and the joyousness of Boccherini, to the anguish of Messiaen and heartbreaking Appalachian folk songs, which tell stories of love, life and loss.
