The song Sanctuary was written and recorded with a message of hope; fortunately many of those prayers have just been answered, giving its lyrics an added celebratory note.

North Carolina folk band Hiss Golden Messenger, with M.C. Taylor at the helm, has produced a warm and beautiful slice of Americana in this atmospherically rich number. Sanctuary has a soothing quality – and do check out the utterly captivating KidEthnic-directed music video.

Over the course of the last decade, Hiss Golden Messenger have released seven critically acclaimed albums and received their first Grammy nomination for the 2019 album Terms of Surrender. So for any new fans out there, you’ll find plenty of material to get stuck into.
