CD of the Week from The Head And The Heart
In 2010, Virginia native Jonathan Russell and California transplant Josiah Johnson formed the core of the songwriting partnership of The Head And The Heart in their new hometown of Seattle. The band was quickly rounded out with the addition of drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche. Their 2011 debut album on Sub Pop became one of the label's best-selling debut releases to date. The Head And The Heart's Let's Be Still is their follow-up to that initial success.
