Rooted in rhythm, Ley Line transcends genres and languages. Dynamic harmonies run like a current through textures of stand up bass, guitar, ukulele and world percussion. Raised on the North American traditions of blues, folk, and soul and inspired by their world travels, Ley Line creates a global soundscape; blending influences from Brazil, Latin America and West Africa
In summer of 2017, the women of Ley Line traveled 3,000 miles across Brazil playing over thirty venues and gathering footage and inspiration for their upcoming album. The visual album to be released in fall of 2018 will incorporate original music and imagery inspired by the natural beauty, folklore and rich musical traditions of Brazil.
Ley Line is the musical merging of two duos. Austinites Kate Robberson and Emilie Basez met twin sisters Madeleine and Lydia Froncek at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2013. Since reuniting in Austin in 2015, Ley Line has been weaving together their individual journeys into a collective vision to unite audiences around the world.
