The siblings have each issued two solo albums, with Angus releasing Smoking Gun (under the pseudonym Lady of the Sunshine) in 2009 and Broken Brights in 2012; Julia's albums are The Memory Machine (2010) and By the Horns (2012).

History[edit]

Early years and musical style[edit]

Angus & Julia Stone are a brother-sister folk-blues duo which formed in Sydney in early 2006. Their parents, John and Kim Stone, were a folk duo before Angus and Julia's elder sister, Catherine, were born (ca. 1982).[1] Catherine, Julia (born 13 April 1984) and Angus (born 27 April 1986) grew up in the suburb of Newport on Sydney's Northern Beaches. They attended Newport Primary School and then Barrenjoey High School – they were all taught by their father.[1] At family gatherings, when the children performed, Catherine was on saxophone, Julia on trumpet and Angus on trombone.[2][3]

During their teen years their parents separated and soon after Angus started writing pop songs.[1][2] The children lived with their father, and after finishing schooling, Angus initially worked as a labourer while Julia taught trumpet.[4] Angus learned guitar while recuperating from a snowboarding accident, he travelled to South America to join his sister.[3]

Gap year[edit]

Angus returned to Australia while Julia spent the rest of a year travelling.[4] Julia later recalled, "[Angus] was writing amazing songs ... [he] had shown me how to play guitar in Bolivia, and those songs had gotten me through that year".[2] She elaborated "At that time the guitar was a new thing for me. I'd just bought it because I wanted to start learning. So we're in the middle of the jungle with this guitar and Angus was playing us these songs he'd been writing. I hadn't really been around him that much for the last couple of years – once I finished school I moved in with my boyfriend and Angus was off surfing and skating – and all of a sudden we're in the middle of the jungle and he's singing these songs that are so beautiful so I asked him to teach me some songs and that was the start of learning guitar and our friendship, I suppose, and the start of us having this amazing experience".[5]

When Julia returned to Australia she encouraged Angus to start performing.[4] By 2005 Angus was playing at open mic nights, sometimes Julia performed backing vocals – for their first such gig, at the Coogee Bay Hotel, they performed Angus' track, "Tears".[6] By that time Julia was writing her own material and they played split sets with each providing backing vocals for the other's material.[2]

Collaboration[edit]

The siblings decided to collaborate on their musical endeavours as a duo in early 2006.[2] In terms of composing material, they each write on their own, then work together on structure and harmonies.[3] Australian music journalist, Ed Nimmervoll, described their songwriting as "Julia with her highly romantic confessional relationship songs, Angus with his more guarded lyrically, more directly pop oriented songs".[3] Julia related her process as "The songs and the writing happens all over the place and from all different sources of inspiration. It can be a combination of a place, a person and then the emotions that you're going through in relation to those things. And then there's the people around you who you're leaving with and the lover you've left at home and the fact it's your mom's birthday next week and you're not going to be there".[5]

They have distinctive vocal styles, according to The Sydney Morning Herald '​s Bernard Zuel, "[h]er voice has a fractured feel like Jolie Holland; his has a smoke-on-the-beach drawl". While Nimmervoll offered, "Angus has a Paul Simon style voice, in the high register, equally as suited to lead and harmony. Julia's is one of those girly, fragile theatrical voices very much in vogue in alt-folk these days. She'd struggle to distinguish herself against the competition, but alternating with Angus gives her the necessary platform of variety, and just as well, because the songs she takes charge of are such wonderful tales of forlorn reflection".[7]

United Kingdom journalist Johnny Sharp of Mojo stated, "[m]ost impressive, though, are the songs – simple but blindingly effective acoustic compositions, warm boy-girl harmonies and delicate, less-is-more arrangements. Resistance is surely futile". Lewis Bazley of inthenews.co.uk felt they had a "winning mix of Angus' Damien Rice-like lilting vocals and Julia's Bjork-esque warbling creating a sonic combination that lulls the listener into wistful contentment".[8]

2006: Chocolates and Cigarettes and Heart Full of Wine EPs[edit]

In March 2006 Angus & Julia Stone began recording their debut extended play, Chocolates and Cigarettes, with Julia on vocals, guitar and trumpet; Angus on vocals and guitar; Mitchell "Mitch" Connelly (The Beautiful Girls) on drums and percussion; Clay MacDonald (The Beautiful Girls) on bass guitar; and Hanna Oblikov guested on cello.[2][9] The EP's title was provided by Julia, "I really like both ... But I'm trying to not like cigarettes. I only smoke now after I play gigs".[2] Connelly, who was Julia's then-boyfriend, and MacDonald had permanently left their band, The Beautiful Girls, to back the duo for live performances.[2] Their first single, "Paper Aeroplane", from the EP was played on Australian radio[10] in April including on FBI. That same month Angus & Julia Stone played at The Great Escape Festival.[11] At the end of July, the siblings played to two hundred people packed in a tiny tent at the Splendour in the Grass festival in Byron Bay.[11]

By August they had signed a two-EP distribution deal with EMI Music in Australia and independent label Independiente Records in the United Kingdom and relocated to London.[12] On 26 August that year the six-track EP was officially released by EMI Music with Ian Prichett (The Beautiful Girls) producing.[2][9] While in the UK, they were invited into Chris Potter's studio (The Verve, Richard Ashcroft) to record. Fran Healy from UK band Travis had also heard their debut EP and invited them to his house to record.[3] The result of these two matchups was the duo's second EP, Heart Full of Wine, which also had six tracks, appeared on 3 February 2007. Again Connelly provided drums and percussion, but on bass guitar was James Perryman and on cello was Bethany Porter – both Angus and Julia also played harmonica.[13][14] At the end of 2006, the duo signed a worldwide publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Creative Artists Agency came on board as their UK-European agent.

2007–2009: A Book Like This[edit]

Performing at Falls Festival, Marion Bay, Tasmania, December 2007

During their time in London, Healy helped Angus & Julia Stone with material which later become a part of their debut album, A Book Like This.[3] With a producer to guide them, the siblings sat on Healy's lounge-room floor, continuing to record songs, using vintage guitars and microphones.[4][15][16][17] The rest of the tracks were recorded in their mother's lounge room back in Newport with Pritchett.[3][16][17] 2007 commenced with the duo playing at January's Big Day Out.[10]

Their single, "Paper Aeroplane", was listed at No. 43 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2006.[18] In February 2007 they played their first national Australian tour, which sold out. In the same month, Chocolates and Cigarettes and Heart Full of Wine, were double-packed and released in Australia and the UK.[19] The double EP reached No. 12 on the UK iTunes and their single, "Private Lawns", was named Single of the Week on BBC Radio 2. It received a positive review from The Evening Standard, which called it "[t]heir finest track[;] its cheeky toe-taping rhythm [is] impossible to resist".

In late March that year the group signed with the William Morris Agency as their US agent. In May they played at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, The Evening Standard reported, "Potentially chart-bound tracks were in far greater supply when Angus and Julia Stone took to the stage". In August they issued their third EP, The Beast, in Australia as a four-track – the UK-edition appeared in October with two additional tracks. The EP appeared in the top 40 of the ARIA Singles Chart.[20] On 8 September the group followed with their debut studio album, A Book Like This, which peaked at No. 6 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[20] By 2008 it was certified platinum by ARIA for shipment of 70,000 units.[21] The group spent the rest of 2007 dividing their time between Australia and the UK. They toured around Australia and gigged extensively in the UK, Ireland and Scotland including support slots with The Magic Numbers and a winning display at the Latitude Festival.

They welcomed in 2008 by performing at the New Year's Eve Falls Festival in Australia before heading back to the UK to support Newton Faulkner and David Gray, as well as playing their own sold-out London shows at Scala. Two of their tracks were listed on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2007, with "Wasted" at No. 31 and "The Beast" at No. 45.[22] A Book Like This was released in the UK in March 2008. In May they performed at the Woodford Folk Festival.[23] The UK press lauded the duo: Uncut magazine said they performed "Fragile, beautiful songs"; a reviewer for The Guardian said "[they] fill [my] heart to bursting point with joy". The second half of that year was filled with more touring including a support spot with Martha Wainwright across the UK and into continental Europe playing gigs to over 25,000 people. In October they issued another four-track EP, Hollywood,[3] which included re-recorded versions from A Book Like This with lead vocals swapped from Julia to Angus for "All the Colours" (aka "Wasted") and "Johnny and June" ("Hollywood"), and from Angus to Julia for "Lonely Hands" ("Just a Boy") – a three-track version was released for the US market.[24][25]

In March 2009, A Book Like This was released in the United States. The siblings supported Brett Dennen around the US, then they performed on the KCRW stage at South by Southwest as well as their own US shows. By April, however, they decided to take a break from performing and recording together, Angus released his debut solo album, Smoking Gun, under the pseudonym, Lady of the Sunshine.[3] His album reached the top 50 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[26] One of his tracks, "Big Jet Plane", from Smoking Gun was later re-recorded by Angus & Julia Stone and released by the duo as a single in May 2010.[27][28]

2009–2010: Down the Way and "Big Jet Plane"[edit]

Angus & Julia Stone spent most of 2009 writing, recording and self-producing their second studio album, Down the Way. The album was mixed by Kieran Kelly (Midnight Youth) at The Buddy Project in Astoria, New York.[29] On 18 November 2009, the brother and sister appeared on Triple J's Dools show with Scott Dooley and premiered their single, "And the Boys". They announce their second album, Down the Way, was due in March 2010 and coincided with an Australian tour.[30] After six months apart (Angus back in Australia, Julia in New York), they recorded the album in studios in Sawmills Cornwall England, Brooklyn in New York and with Govinda Doyle in Coolangatta, Queensland.[3] Angus described the album: "All the songs were written so far [apart] that the styles and moods are really different". It debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[20] The lead single, "And the Boys", became the group's second entry into the ARIA Singles Chart top 50.[20]

During April 2010 the duo toured the UK to sold-out venues, Katy Ratican of Contactmusic.com caught their performance at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester, "a set led primarily by Julia, she had the greater presence of the duo throughout. With Angus appearing the most shy of the two, it was left to Julia to engage the audience with chat and it wasn't until later in the set that Angus' seemingly gentle nature was fully accepted".[31] Alexander Gunz described their gig in Berlin "[they] look exactly as they do in the press photos: a slightly pot-smoking Neo-Hippie couple. He with artfully excellent and fluffy hair under his hat, her with Edding-painted roses on her guitar and a long blue dress, which while dancing she lifts slightly with her fingertips".[32] The following month, the Big Jet Plane EP was released which included Julia singing a cover version of "You're the One That I Want" from Grease.[31][33] In Australia, "Big Jet Plane", their highest charting single, peaked at No. 21.[20] It appeared at No. 20 on the New Zealand Singles Chart,[34] No. 23 in Belgium and top 40 on the French Singles Chart.[35][36]

In an April 2010 interview with the Australian edition of Rolling Stone magazine, Julia revealed she had recorded a solo album in New York in late 2009.[6] Her song "This Love" appears in the Australian film The Waiting City.[6] The album, The Memory Machine, was released in a low-key fashion in September 2010.[3] She described it as "mellow" but darker and spookier in tone than the duo's work.[37] Due to her commitments with the group there were no solo tours to promote her album.[37] Down the Way also charted in Europe where it peaked in the top 30 on the French Albums Chart and stayed in the top 200 for 86 weeks.[36] It reached the top 50 in Austria and Belgium;[35][38] and the top 100 in Switzerland and The Netherlands.[39][40] At the ARIA Music Awards of 2010 Angus & Julia Stone won 'Album of the Year' and 'Best Adult Alternative Album' for Down the Way and 'Single of the Year' for "Big Jet Plane", as well as Artisan Awards for 'Producer of the Year' and 'Best Cover Art' for their work on Down the Way.[41] Their song "Big Jet Plane" was announced No. 1 on the Triple J Hottest 100 on Australia Day (26 January) 2011.[42]

2011–2013: Solo albums[edit]

According to Julia "When we make a record there are always too many songs, so we try and cut back to six songs each. There's no real process of deciding what gets put on the album and what gets put on our solo records ... It's funny, Angus didn't hear my solo record until it was being printed and I hadn't heard any of the songs from his solo record – we did them totally separately", March 2011.[5]

In an interview with Jason Treuen of Rolling Stone (Australia), Angus & Julia Stone confirmed they were writing material for a third album with Angus stating, "I want to write stuff that makes me wanna move, more groove-based stuff."[43] They performed at the 2011 Falls Festivals[44] and Big Day Out festivals in Australia, followed by the Coachella festival in California. During July that year, the band toured Europe for a month visiting Portugal, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Italy.[45]

The pair planned to travel and holiday overseas for the rest of the year, while also writing and recording. According to Triple J, in December 2010, they aimed to release their new music at the end of 2011.[46] On 26 September 2011 the duo's song "Love Will Take You" was announced as the second track on the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga film, Breaking Dawn – Part 1.[47] On the same day, the band was selected as a top ten finalist in MTV Iggy's 2011 Best New Band in the World! competition.[48]

In May 2012 Julia told Rolling Stone (Australia) that the duo had shelved work on a third album, indefinitely: "It was too much to think we could only pick six songs each… We were both in a place where we really wanted creative space to go in whatever direction we wanted so we were like 'let's just take a year out'". She explained that those songs were unlikely to be heard, but maintained the group would reunite after their solo projects.[49] That same month, Julia released her second solo album, By the Horns,[50] which debuted at No. 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[51]

She described writing the songs and temporarily parting with Angus, "[w]e had already been working on a new record together but it didn’t feel right ... I was thinking 'I'll make it now and we'll figure out what happens when it happens'".[52] "Then Angus and I were talking on the phone and he'd been working on more stuff on his own as well and we both just agreed – we were both in the same place, ready to put together a collection of our own songs". From late 2011 Angus had worked on his second solo album, Broken Brights, which was released in July 2012, and reached No. 2.[53] He told Garin Fahlman of Vancouver Weekly that he had "discovered a lot about time ... Just in general. To take a step back and let something unfold and breathe and become ripe when it says it's time".[54] In November 2012, Megan Sauers of Venture Mag reported that Angus & Julia Stone were due to tour Europe during January and February 2013.[55] In early December 2012 Julia and Angus each performed solo slots at Homebake, Julia indicated further solo shows from mid-February 2013.[56]

2014: Self-titled album[edit]

The duo began working with Rick Rubin in Malibu during April 2014.[57] On 17 April, Julia tweeted from her Twitter account, "Up at the studio in Malibu. Recording with me brethren and the man of wonder Rick for the new album."[58] Rubin helped reunite the duo and co-produced the album.[59] The producer said of the experience: "This album is extraordinary; Angus and Julia are truly unique musicians. They are authentic and pure people who do things from the heart. I've never worked with anyone like them before." The album has been said to contain "blended harmonies [...] and more experimental guitar textures".[60]

Angus & Julia Stone was released on 1 August 2014 in Australia through EMI Music Australia,[61] and on the same day in the United States through American Recordings.[62] Its release was preceded by the singles "Heart Beats Slow",[63] which peaked at #37 in Australia,[64] and "A Heartbreak".[65] The videos for both songs as well as a video for "Get Home" were directed by Jessie Hill.[66]

The album is the highest-charting by the duo to date, reaching the top 10 in several countries including France, Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand. With an average of 67 based on 7 reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, Angus & Julia Stone received generally favorable critical recepetion.[67]
