    Shovels & Rope is American folk duo of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst from Charleston, South Carolina.

    The duo began with two guitars, a junkyard drum kit (harvested from an actual garbage heap- adorned with tamborines, flowers and kitchen rags), a handful of harmonicas, voices, and above all.. songs. Cary Ann Hearst & Michael Trent prefer to keep it simple. They have cleverly managed to take 3 separate recording projects and combine them into 1 cohesive, folk rock, sloppy tonk, harmonized, loose but tight, streamlined audience killing machine.

    Michael Trent (Texas/Colorado) has just released his second solo album entitled “The Winner”, and Cary Ann Hearst (Mississippi/Tennessee) is about to release her second record “Lions & Lambs”. Together hey have one duo release “Shovels & Rope” which was came out in 2008 and are currently working on the follow up “Shovels & Rope V.2” in their house, van, and backyard. At the shows, expect to hear a little something from any or all of these releases – while the duo switch instruments and share lead vocal duties. Also prepare to rethink your definition of a live rock band. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
