"A collection of genre-bent creativity...a whole new landscape with evocative time signatures and interwoven classic-led melodies." 

~ Carol Campbell, WERA-FM, Arlington, VA

Their music has been described as "genre-bending" and "courageous," Soul Stew Records recording artists Abigail Selby & Eric Selby are two songwriters who perform their original music on electric harp, keys, guitar, vocals, drums & percussion: a true fusion of Celtic, psychedelic, jazz, indie, blues and rock. Within their music, Abigail and Eric attempt to magnify their sound beyond what you might think two people can create. Their music can be seen as a true original and unique art piece that could only be described if you've experienced it.

Abigail Selby and Eric Selby began performing together in March of 2014. They initially planned to expand to a larger group, but after some time, decided to stay as a duo, primarily focusing on the instrumentation of harp, drums and vocals (with a little guitar and keys thrown in for creative good measure). In January of 2015, Abigail and Eric began recording their self-titled EP as well as their first full-length album, "Shedding Shadows," with their debut album release concert being held at Washington, D.C.'s historic Blues Alley. In early 2016, Abigail and Eric had a successful tour of the southeast United States, supporting both their EP release and their full-length CD. Both releases have received airplay throughout the U.S. and the world. In the Summer of 2017, Abigail and Eric performed on the west coast of the United States, including shows in Los Angeles and San Diego, California. While on the west coast, Abigail and Eric recently created a music video for Soultone Cymbals in Los Angeles, CA. They recently released their second full-length album, "Gypsy Second" on January 1st, 2018.

"Ever since I stumbled upon Abigail and Eric in rehearsal, I knew this was something special...glittering, swirling original music that lifts you from the ordinary and let's you hear ancient voices and commune with gathering spirits. All of us need a bit of the 'otherworldly' in our lives and this is a great place to start. Indulge yourself in "Gypsy Second"

“You all have come up with an experiment that has really worked.”
~David Muse - WPFW-FM, Washington, DC

"Abigail's approach to playing the harp is sensitive, heartfelt and exciting. Eric paints a snare drum like he was Rembrandt."
~Maggie Sansone, Alan Chideste - Maggie’s Music, KRFP, 90.3 FM

“The drumming has taken me all over the place. I’ve heard a lot of different influences in the drumming and then you add the harp to that with your voice, it creates this tapestry of almost a larger group of being in front of you.”

~David Muse - WPFW-FM, Washington, DC
