the Head and the Heart
Hailing from the rainy cultural capital of Seattle, Washington, the Head and the Heart started
as an informal group of musicians who frequented the same music clubs and bars within the city's vibrant music scene. All
members of the bands were transplants to Seattle or had recently returned to Seattle, and a career in music was a far off
dream for them, with their musical ambitions ending at impromptu performances at local watering holes. The birthplace of the
band would be the Conor Byrne pub, where graduate students Josiah Johnson and Jonathan Russell would frequently perform during
open mic, and they would soon be joined by fellow regular and recently returned globe trotter Charity Rose Thielen. Chris
Zasche, a bartender at Conor Byrne and musician, would become infected with the Head and the Heart sound and quit his side
gigs to practice with them full time. Kenny Hensley, an aspiring career musician, would join their ranks and Jonathan Russell
would solicit Virginia based musician Tyler Williams to fill out the band's number.
With a steady build towards success,
the band soon self-recorded their debut and began to dominate the local Seattle music scene, and were soon being courted by
multiple labels who had scouted the Head and the Heart as the next big thing on the indie folk scene. They would eventually
sign onto medium sized label Sub Pop, and within the next two years had re released their debut and became one of the hottest
indie acts on the tour scene on two continents, with their addictive sound spilling over the Atlantic and spreading like wildfire
through Europe. The band spent a year opening for some of the biggest acts in rock music today, including Vampire Weekend,
The Decembrists, and Death Cab For Cutie, before leveling up to top status as they headlined their own shows across the globe.
The Head and the Heart would also be beamed straight to homes across North America with a coveted performance slot on late
night television with Conan O'Brien. Two full lengths album and countless live performances later, the Head and the Heart
is the premier indie folk rock band in existence today.
The band's sophomore release Let's
Be Still would cement the Head and the Heart as fundamental folk rock leaders, with runaway success commercially and critically
that included the number one spots on US Independent and Folk Albums, as well as a top ten entry on the Billboard 200. The
album spawned to Head and the Heart classic hits, including "Another Story" and "Shake".
sound has jumped mediums as it invades film and television, with tracks being heard on TV series Chuck, How I Met Your Mother,
Beaver Falls, Sons of Anarchy, Hart of Dixie, and AUDOIO-FILES, as well on the major motion picture Silver Linings Playbook.
