Featured Release This Week From The Head And The Heart

Oct 9, 2016

Signs Of Light​ is the third album from The Head and The Heart.  The six-piece folk-rock band began in Seattle in the summer of 2009.  Vocalist and guitarist Josiah Johnson explained the band's name, and also gave an indication of difficult decisions involved in the group's formation when he said:  "Your head is telling you to be stable and find a good job, (but) you know in your heart that this (the band) is what you're supposed to do even if it's crazy."  This is their first release for Warner Brothers Records, and that could be taken as a sign of their growing success.   Along with the cachet of being on a major label comes the pressure to be more "commercial."  While the band does seem to have upped the production values for this record, their songwriting and playing remain superb.
