Most recently, The Webb Sisters were honoured with the opportunity to tour and sing with one of their idols, the legendary Leonard Cohen. Their current album ‘Savages’, recorded with multi Grammy-winning producer Peter Asher, includes several songs written by the girls, plus their own version of Leonard Cohen’s ‘If It Be Your Will’.
Among their multitude of achievements The Webb Sisters represented the UK at America’s 400th Anniversary celebrations, contributed songs to several major TV shows, recorded alongside the likes of Dolly Parton and Rufus Wainwright for a Judy Collins tribute album and have performed on major concert tours with artists such as Jamie Cullum, James Morrison and Jason Mraz.
“There’s a reason Leonard Cohen, for whom Charley and Hattie Webb sing backup, refers to them as “the sublime Webb Sisters.” Instant converts cheered and whistled for their spine-tingling, deadly-precise harmonies.” Montreal Gazette
“The Webb Sisters provided choral richness and gave an exquisite rendition of one of Cohen’s best tunes, “If It Be Your Will.” (Usually it’s a disappointment when backup singers do the star’s material. Not in this case.).” Huffington Post
