Chris and Amy are Dragonfly Sky, an engaging acoustic harmony duo, from Surrey who, after a first successful Ep have just released their new single Willow Tree. Graham Steel who writes our music scene guest blogs introduced us to them and we were captivated by the beautiful lyrics and harmonies.
“Amy and Chris are writers and performers of well crafted, atmospheric original songs. With mellifluous harmonies and perfect arrangements, you will be caught up in the story and drifting through a heady mix of light and dark shades”
‘Willow Tree’ is a song that explores a near-death experience, after lead singer, Amy Whiter, contracted meningitis and was seriously ill and left fighting for life in hospital.
Amy contracted Meningitis as an adult and was seriously ill, she was left fighting for her life in hospital for two months. Willow tree is about being in a strange place between life and death and is already attracting critical acclaim. The duo held a fundraising event by hosting a day long live stream which raised money for Meningitis.
“This experience happened in 2011 and changed my outlook forever” says Amy Whiter, “Although obviously a very frightening experience, it left me with a renewed and profound sense of love for family and friends, and a greater appreciation for life.
The song is really an exploration of being in this strange place somewhere between life and death, and about coming to terms with the experience. The Willow Tree is for me a symbol of the bridge between life and death.
Paul chats to Amy and Chris about heir journey to writing Willow tee, a song written during lock down with the different musicians and singers working together in a new way, from home rather than in a studio.
