Damsel doesn’t apologize. The indie-folk duo integrates their background as classical chamber musicians with folk music leanings to create an intricate instrumental sound around tight vocal harmonies. The singing-songwriting team is Monica Mugan on vocals/guitar/ukulele and Beth Meyers on vocals/viola/banjo/ukulele. Their sound has been compared to The Milk Carton Kids, First Aid Kit, This Is The Kit and The Story/Jonatha Brooke. Damsel’s second album, ‘New to You,’ featuring Jason Treuting on drums, Florent Ghys on bass and Dan Trueman on hardanger fiddle was released in October 2021. ‘New to You’ and debut album ‘Just Sit So’ are streamable on all platforms and available via Bandcamp https://damselduo.bandcamp.com/

Pulitzer Prize winning Irish poet and former New Yorker editor, Paul Muldoon, had this to say of Damsel’s debut album, ‘Just Sit So’: “The surface of a Damsel song may be sweet and sonorous, but what’s going on under the surface is more often than not spiked and steely. That’s just one reason I love this CD.”
