Susie Hodder-Williams and Chris Caldwell

We are two musicians who live in the national park of Dartmoor, in the South-West of England. We have been creating landscape and nature inspired music since 2005.

In March 2021, we released the EP, Hemispheres. We collaborated with musicians from Australia to create an optimistic and evocative indie mix, blending sounds from both hemispheres.

We run a music series in the heart of Dartmoor, bringing eclectic music and guest musicians to the community. This has become an exciting meeting place for expansion and dialogue and a focus for the exchange of artistic ideas.

We have worked with many artists and created music to accompany exhibitions, documentaries, nature journals and multi media productions.

In 2018-19, the artist André Wallace commissioned us to create the music for his exhibition, the Voyage, at Poole Museum. The music for this was released in 2020, on the album, Coracle of Life.

Our first album, Mariner’s Way, 2009, described the mythical footsteps of the mariner, traveling across Dartmoor. Since then our own journey has taken us to Aboriginal tribes in Taiwan, Downtown Music Gallery, in New York; a jazz club in Houston, Texas, an art house cinema in New Orleans; the Two Days, Two Nights Contemporary Music Festival in Odessa, and to one of the most poetic of English cathedrals, Wells Cathedral, where we perform meditative music for mental health, in a quarterly series, under the banner of Blue Concerts.

Our music is regularly broadcast on RTÉ, Lyric FM, along with BBC Radio 3, ABC Australia, Radio New Zealand, WDR, ÖRF, RTHK, locally on Devonstream, and many internet stations in Europe, Japan and US.
