About the album:
When the Sun Goes Down is the follow-up to Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert’s acclaimed debut, The Ledges. Recorded live at home, When the Sun Goes Down captures the duo's grounded, restrained playing and singing with a shimmering intimacy.
With themes ranging from the achingly personal to the pointedly political, these new songs from Kane and Gellert illustrate their movement toward a more thorough synthesis of their musical backgrounds. Guitar, fiddle, banjo, and octave mandolin — in combination with their deeply affecting vocal blend — are employed in ways both evocative and modern.
“Kane and Gellert, individually and as a duo, practice an understated and unpretentious virtuosity.” — No Depression
"Kieran and Rayna are the real dope." — Paul Schrader, screenwriter/director (Taxi Driver, First Reformed)
