Cornwall based indie duo, Our Atlantic Roots (Mac and Laura Johnston) bring an uplifting blend of American and British alternative folk, with harmonies that are rich and dynamic. Mac’s country bluegrass roots add a popular authentic southern vibe to many songs, with the more folk-inspired influence coming from Laura’s side of the family being English and Irish.
The husband/wife duo met in Asheboro, North Carolina in August 2012. Just a few weeks after meeting, Mac and Laura sat down to write their first song together and straight away people commented on the way their voices and styles complimented each other. The songwriting continued and the coming months sparked a flame that would turn into quite the adventure. In April 2014 the duo married and relocated to the UK. September 2017 saw the release of Mac and Laura’s debut EP ‘First Light’ recorded with award-winning folk producer Andy Bell. In 2019, the duo released their second, EP ‘Little Bird’, which has had over 150,000 streams on Spotify and has been featured on some of the most popular indie/folk YouTube playlists, resulting in millions of plays in just a few months.
Recent media appearances include singing live on both BBC Radio Devon and BBC Spotlight after the duo won the country music category of the UK songwriting contest in January 2020. This is an international award judged by Grammy, Emmy, CMA and Brit award winning judges.
“Haven’t been as excited by new music sent into UCB in ages as I was when I got the new release from Mac and Laura – simply stunning.”
– Steve Best, UCB Radio Presenter
-BBC Introducing Devon and Cornwall
“Angelic, atmospheric, relaxing and inspiring”
-Ear to the Ground Music
At the heart of all that Mac and Laura do, is a love for people and a passion to write and share authentic songs that uplift and bring hope.
“HOPE IS OUR ANTHEM.”
