Anchor & the Butterfly is singer-songwriter Bridget Robertson and guitarist Lance Hillier. They play modern Australian country-folk that sits comfortably between artists like Lucinda Williams and Cat Power.

They have a DIY approach to music, doing everything themselves, including the recording of their first album in a converted tin shed in their back garden. From their home in Bendigo they create music that is emotionally honest, understated and a little existential.

They released their debut album ‘Nothing to Win Nothing to Lose’ in 2014. The album received rave reviews across Australia and overseas. Rhythms Magazine said of the release, ‘If the breathy vocals, lonely piano notes and reverberating breaths of electric guitar doesn’t capture your immediate attention on Nothing to Win Nothing to Lose, you are indeed difficult to please.’
