Mildred Fox and Christian Hind aka Hidden Stills, have been writing and performing their own style of pared back contemporary folk songs since the start of 2017. They attempt to create songs of reflection and introspection with close harmonies and interesting melodies, which turn out at times to be dark and emotional. This distillation process of paring back the songs and music as much as possible gave them their name.
The pair spent the greater part of 2017 building their repertoire and developing their style while working on how to best present the songs as an album. To that end, recording began in early 2018 with producer Darragh Nolan in Asta Kalapa Studios in Gorey, Co.Wexford. Several talented local musicians were brought in to augment Mildred and Christian’s acoustic sound. An eponymous collection of 11 songs was released this Summer.
