Hungrytown is the musical and married duo of Ken Anderson and Rebecca Hall, who have been making music full time since swapping their New York-based UN jobs for the hills of New England in 2004.

Since then, the couple has been touring extensively, and has released two CDs, the self-titled Hungrytown (2008) and Any Forgotten Thing (2011).

Rebecca learned to sing in church when she was five years old, and had developed into a skilled interpreter of jazz and blues standards by the time she was in her 20s. Her discovery of roots music coincided with the reissue of the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music in 1997, which inspired her to write her own material. She soon developed a reputation for creating simple, melodic and achingly beautiful songs, weaving modern themes into traditional song structures.

Ken is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist as well as a talented producer and arranger. He learned to play drums and organ as a child, and has since moved on to bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. He also has a remarkable gift for musical harmony, and is responsible for Hungrytown’s luxuriant vocal stylings. Having produced all of their recorded works, his artistry has been singled out for praise: ‘Anderson has a knack for crafting rich arrangements that don’t clutter things up,’ writes Casey Rea of Seven Days magazine.

When not touring with Rebecca, Ken is often upstairs in their home studio, working with other songwriters and instrumentalists.
