Chris While and Julie Matthews have been nominated eight times for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the Best Duo, Best Song & Best Live Act categories.

While and Matthews met in the Albion band in 1993 when Julie left the band and Chris joined. A year later Julie rejoined the band and she and Chris formed a part-time duo, touring in Canada as The Women Of Albion. After leaving the band in 1997 they began their full time duo career, releasing their debut album Piecework that year followed by Higher Potential in 1999. The much requested double live album Stages was released in 2000 followed in 2001 by their highly acclaimed studio album Quest produced by Kwame Yeboah (e2K, Miss Dynamite, Craig David). In 2005 they released their stripped down album Here and Now and in 2007 recorded their second live album on tour in Germany.

Thoughout their career they have toured solidly as a duo in the UK, Europe, Africa, North America and Australia where they have achieved great success and are held in the highest esteem, filling concert halls and headlining festival stages. They've also worked on several musical projects for the BBC including Tales of the Towpath, a radio documentary about the building of the Manchester Ship Canal and The 2006 Radio Ballads.

Chris While & Julie Matthews are both individual writers of some note but it's when they combine their writing talents that the unique nature of their partnership flourishes. They are world renowned for their affinity on stage and for the energy and enthusiasm of their live perfomances.
