It must be exciting but tough to be born into a musical dynasty such as the Watersons. Exciting because of the music that could constantly be heard around the families' homes near Robin Hood's Bay, on the Yorkshire coast, but difficult because of the expectations. Marry and Oliver are the children of that bravely original songwriter and singer, the late Lal Waterson, a fan of Van Morrison and Kate Bush who saw herself as being "beyond a folk-singer".
The brother-and-sister duo Marry Waterson and Oliver Knight are the children of the late British songstress Lal Waterson. Knight has been either recording or producing music since he was 13. Waterson's career actually began with the duo's 2011 album, The Days That Shaped Me. While that recording proved interesting, it was also predictable as an intimate, and largely acoustic, singer/songwriter affair.
