With a sound built around piano, violin and prominent three-part harmonies, The Head and the Heart have a unique sound full of “sing-along meditations and winding Appalachian roads” (Filter). The band makes their Austin City Limits debut with a set full of “jaunty piano and declarations of love” (Spin).
The Seattle sextet formed around open mic nights, settling on its current lineup and gigging incessantly. Their self-released, self-titled first album became a local bestseller and led to a deal with Sub Pop, who remastered, expanded and re-released the record earlier this year. NPR said “Impeccable, sweet-voiced folk-pop hangs heavy over the Pacific Northwest. But The Head and the Heart is a particularly lovable practitioner, making a nationwide name for itself.”
