There’s something inherently special about Chatham Rabbits, comprised of partners in music and life, Austin and Sarah McCombie. Their music isn’t just about notes and lyrics; it’s a testament to their shared history and the deep connection they’ve forged over the years. Rooted in the rich traditions of their North Carolina home, Chatham Rabbits weave together stories of love, life, and everything in between with remarkable finesse.

From their debut album, “All I Want From You,” to their latest release, “If You See Me Riding By,” Chatham Rabbits have continuously pushed the boundaries of roots music. Their sophomore album, “The Yoke is Easy, The Burden is Full,” garnered widespread acclaim, with the song “Oxen” being hailed as the “Top Folk Song of 2020” by Paste Magazine. Their journey didn’t stop there; amidst the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis, the McCombies embarked on the innovative “Stay at Home Tour,” bringing their music directly to neighborhoods across the nation.

The duo’s authentic charm and undeniable talent haven’t gone unnoticed. Garden & Gun Magazine praises their ability to capture the essence of their live performances in their songs, while No Depression highlights the genuine connection they share with their audience—an intimacy that only a married duo could bring to the stage.
