I love unexpected collaborations and the art of the duet. What a great example we have of both with the new album from Flo Morrissey and ​​Matthew E. White, called Gentlewoman, Ruby Man.

Flo is an emerging star from the UK. Matthew is a well known indie producer and artist from the vital Richmond, Virginia, music scene. They met at a Lee Hazelwood tribute show and shared ​Spotify playlists to come up with the material for their first album.

On this episode of FUV Live, I spoke with them about their love of classic duets, how they chose what songs to cover, and why they chose to honor heritage music. We'll hear a stripped-down session with the pair that is very different from their meticulously produced album, Gentlewoman, Ruby Man.
