A sultry duo from the subtle hills of the Ozarks — that’s how the jazz-folk pair of Anna Horton and Joel Ludford refer to themselves as Handmade Moments.
The seductiveness of Handmade Moments’ music is heard on the second track of their debut album, where Horton sings, “Oh, do it again. I may say, ‘no, no, no, no, no,’ but do it again. My lips, they ache for you to take the kiss that’s waiting for you.”
