“You’re in the presence of something very special… what a voice” Sid Smith, BBC Music
The Last Inklings are Leonardo MacKenzie and David Hoyland, both accomplished multi-instrumentalists with a solid folk background. The band’s innovative sound crosses genres, centred around cello, mandolin and vocal harmony, layered with guitar, piano, strings, synths and percussion. With vibrant backstories and creative musicianship, their songs have a modern flavour that is rich with imagery and narrative, exploring at their core what it is to be human.
