Although they're sisters, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche didn't grow up together. Aside from genetic, their true bond was a musical one. 'Songs In The Dark' features songs that shaped their childhoods, made famous by the likes of Woody Guthrie and Jimmie Rogers, but also lullabies created by their father (Loudon Wainwright III) and family members.
"'Songs In The Dark' is meant to be played quietly, and to loft over the listener almost subconsciously. Some of the lyrics are sad, but they only evoke rather than punch." - Martha Wainwright
