Sometimes, what you were looking for comes right when you’re not looking at all. You might say that’s how Say Darling was formed. In 2016,old friends Celia Woodsmith and Chris Hersch found themselves taking a step back from their international touring projects.
Grammy-Nominated singer and songwriter Celia Woodsmith – of the acclaimed bluegrass band Della Mae – and critically lauded guitarist Chris Hersch of the alt. country rock band Girls Guns & Glory, had each independently decided to relax their rigorous schedules, both ending up back home in New England with time on their hands. These two road warriors and workaholics didn’t last long before delving into a new and exciting project: Say Darling.
The quintet can go from pin-drop silence to a cascading roar in the span of one song, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. Say Darling will get you off your chair and dancing, or keep you spellbound with evocative vocals and performances. No one else can so effortlessly combine their influences in one electric and contemporary package.
