Mac and Laura Johnston

About

Cornwall based indie duo, Mac and Laura, bring an uplifting blend of American and British alternative folk, with country bluegrass roots and harmonies that are rich and dynamic. The  husband/wife duo met in Asheboro, North Carolina in August 2012. Just a few weeks after meeting, Mac and Laura wrote their first song together and clicked straight away. The coming months sparked a flame that would turn into quite the adventure. In April 2014 the duo married and relocated to the UK. September 2017 saw the release of Mac and Laura’s EP ‘First Light’ recorded with folk producer Andy Bell (Jon Boden, Seth Lakeman, Martin Simpson).

“HAVEN’T BEEN AS EXCITED BY NEW MUSIC SENT INTO UCB IN AGES AS I WAS WHEN I GOT THE NEW RELEASE FROM MAC AND LAURA – SIMPLY STUNNING.”

– Steve Best UCB Radio Presenter 

At the heart of all that Mac and Laura do, is a love for people and a passion to write and share authentic songs that uplift and bring hope.

“HOPE IS OUR ANTHEM, LOVE IS OUR GOAL”

We would love to hear from you!
