To Wake You is the new project from Mark Davis (US) and Karoline Hausted (Denmark), a musical marriage between two soul-friends, with songs of wonder at the mystery of love, written from opposite sides of the globe. 

The two songwriters first met twice with an interval of eight years in between and it was after their second meeting, when the stars where aligned, that songs started emerging, and at a rapid speed were exchanged back and forth across the Atlantic.  

Now the duo is bringing these powerful songs into the light, through recordings and live performances.

Mark Davis and Karoline Hausted each have individual career paths behind them. They first toured together in 2013 and have most recently been involved with the award-winning group “Shadowlands” based in San Luis Obispo, California.

To Wake You is music and lyrics written from a rare intimacy and authenticity reminiscent of artists like “The Swell Season” (from the movie Once), “Feist” and “Damien Rice”.

"Here is something as rare as an original artistic temperament at play. Hushed, special and urgent, she is addictive as a drug and completely impossible to get out of the system."
