He's got a Scottish accent. She's got an autoharp. They sing funny songs together. Yet somehow, Libby & Cal is not a gimmicky band. It's an authentic expression of two individuals.There is beauty in their 48 strings and their vocal harmonies. There is sensitivity and humour in their lyrics. Their sound is like no other, but also cozily familiar.
Ottawa-based folk duo Libby & Cal's second album, “If You've Given up on Love, then Let's Call it Something Else” is a collection of songs about alternative love. In response to popular lyrics about self-sacrifice and unrealistic devotion, this album proposes something different: a step off the relationship escalator. There are many roads to Happy Ever After, and marriage is only one possibility.
