The Mechanical Botanicals are a Welsh/Canadian duo consisting of Lydia Hibbing (Canadian) and James Mannion (Welsh). Based in the picturesque small town of Tumbler Ridge in beautiful British Columbia, they had been making music together since 2014 in various local acts before forming The Mechanical Botanicals in 2016.
The pair focus heavily on their dynamic harmonies and vocal strengths blending their voices effortlessly in a Simon&Garfunkel/Gram&Emmy-Lou style. The Mechanical Botanicals repertoire of both originals and classic covers such as The Beatles’ ‘Something’ and Ray’s ‘Georgia’ lend themselves well to the pairs soulful style.
The duo is set to release their debut EP entitled ‘The Road’ later this year.
