Shovels and Rope Background

Husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst were busy with their own careers – his with the band, The Films, and hers as a soloist before they teamed together. When they started collaborating, just the two of them, they discovered their personal chemistry transitioned successfully to their music together. Ever since 2010, they've claimed the hearts of many roots-music fans, thanks to the married couple's heart-tugging songwriting and passionate live stage performances.

Born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Hearst quietly emerged onto the contemporary folk music. It didn't take long, however, after her tune, "Hell's Bells" was included on the HBO vampire-themed series' True Blood that Hearst gained some fame. This spotlight only amplified the success of her pair of solo albums and helped garner her some mainstream success as she and her husband, Michael Trent, collaborated on touring and penning songs.

Trent was somewhat established as a recording artist in his own right, having issued a solo album in 2010. (This was after initially cutting an independent album with Hearst.)The Winner came out on his own Shrimp Records Label. Although Trent's solo projects didn't make it to any TV show soundtracks, the tunes on The Winnerwould definitely interest all fans of Shovels and Rope - they are electrifying and creative, soaked with dance-able rhythms.

In the spring of 2012, Shovels and Rope dropped their first full-length album, O' Be Joyful. They became officially recognized as the band named after their first album. Shovels and Rope overtook the folk festival scene that same summer, claiming the adulation of fans and critics along the way.

Shovels and Rope Albums

Leveraging one-of-a-kind tools and an unconventional setup to create their "garage folk" sound, the musical married couple, Shovels and Rope, have been known to take turns behind a junkyard drum kit rescued from an actual junkyard, along with harmonicas, guitars and assorted percussive devices. Their first homemade record, O' Be Joyful, is soaked with country rock and punk influences. Their 11 well-crafted tunes feature double shots brimming with piss and vinegar. To hear songs like "Birmingham" and "Can't Hardly Stand It" live, make sure you get your Shovels and Rope tickets today through StubHub!


Shovels and Rope Trivia

According to Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent's official bio, the couple reside on Johns Island, South Carolina, where they are the proud "parents" of a hound dog and chickens. And, if you're wondering where they borrowed their name from, it comes from the title of their first album together. According to their official bio page, the couple said, "It's a pretty good record featuring several murder ballads where some characters were hanging and others were doing the burying, so the title seemed apt. It now serves as the official moniker of the band." They also added, "The name of the band is not 'Shovels & Ropes.' It's just one long length of rope, of which you can cut off appropriate lengths to accommodate whatever job necessitates having it."


Shovels and Rope Concert Experience

Reminiscent of rough-and-smooth couples like Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello, Shovels and Rope are full of edgy, creative talent. Using a kick drum, two old guitars, a handful of tambourines, harmonicas, a snare, the couple sing harmony fueled country, folk and rock songs.
