I wish I was a slave to an age-old trade, like ridin' around on railcars and workin' long days. ”

Lyrics from Down in the Valley

The Head and The Heart are an indie folk-pop band from Seattle, Washington that formed in the summer of 2009. Members include Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar, percussion), Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar, percussion), Charity Rose Thielen (violin, vocals), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (piano) and Tyler Williams (drums). The Head and the Heart’s music is a harmonic vocal blend mixed with piano, violin and prominent percussive elements. Pressed on Sonic Boom Records, the group sold over 10,000 copies of their debut 2009 album The Head and The Heart through concert appearances, word of mouth advertising and consignment sales at local record shops. Indie giant Sub Pop Records signed them in November 2010. The group have toured through the US and UK opening for prominent acts such as Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, The Dave Matthews Band and The Decemberists. In March 2011, Seattle’s City Arts Magazine named them Best New Band.
The Head and the Heart
Good old-fashioned, earnest Americana with plenty of sing-a-long fun
