Lemoncello are like two halves of a whole. Laura Quirke and Claire Kinsella met in University, and bonded over their mutual love of close harmony and vulnerability in songwriting. Kinsella is an intensely proficient cello player, while Quirke’s voice has grown into its own character over time. Together, they have a stunning blend. (EARMILK, 2020)
