about

Intricate, precise and mysterious twin guitar folk from coastal England.

Nine super tense and sensitive living room recordings released on digital download and limited edition boxes through Woodland Recordings.

'Unfussy and genuine with the warmth of an old field recording you’re sure to keep returning to, a simply beautiful album.' - Folk Radio

'Like many people nowadays, and certainly every DJ on freeform WFMU Radio, I listen to a wide variety of music, new and old. I particularly love music that is imbued with the feel of the traditional yet approaches the material with a fresh perspective, resulting in a sound that is rooted in both. The Knights Project hits this sweet spot, creating beautiful and deeply heartfelt music. While I’m a passionate collector of old records, I’m grateful for any new music, like that of The Knights Project, that reassures me not only that the elemental nature of music is not only alive, but very much thriving.'
-Jeffrey Davison, WFMU

’wonderfully honest and beautifully tangible’
- toxicpete

‘Six fine simple well crafted perfectly recorded English bedroom folk songs from Derbyshire, couldn't be any less perfect than it is...’ - DSD Reviews (review of A Trick of the Light EP)
