At the center of Fawkes & Hownd’s artistic mission is an intent to convey authenticity. With an attention towards meshing influences ranging between Canadian and American roots, Phöenix Lazare and Justin Kelley’s work showcases an organic core. More important to them than any musical flourish, then, is a dedication to exhibiting the truths that were prevalent between one another when developing each of their songs.
‘Our Time’, Fawkes & Hownd’s newest single, expresses this dedication beautifully. Partners in life as well as music, the duo venture through their love’s layers even in the light of coming obstacles. Recorded by Atom Lazare and Deanna Milligan with gorgeous shots at Salt Spring Island and the Tree House Cafe, For Folk’s Sake is proud to premiere the tune’s accompanying music video.
