Angus & Julia Stone are a brother-sister duo from Newport on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.
Both Angus and Julia have distinctive vocal styles. The Sydney Morning Herald’s Bernard Zuel described their vocals as such: "Her voice has a fractured feel like Jolie Holland; his has a smoke-on-the-beach drawl." UK journalist Johnny Sharp stated, "Most 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."
A Book Like This is the first full-length album by Australian singer-songwriter duo Angus and Julia Stone. It was released in September 2007 in Australia, and will be released elsewhere internationally in 2008.
