The Head And The Heart On Mountain Stage

The Head and the Heart.

Mountain Stage
The Head and the Heart.

The Head And The Heart makes its first appearance on Mountain Stage, fresh off a busy schedule of summer festivals and outdoor shows. With its mix of folk, Americana, and pop, the Seattle band's self-released 2010 debut earned The Head And The Heart a label deal soon afterward.

An expanded version of that album was reissued to a much wider audience, transforming The Head And The Heart from an insider favorite to a nationally beloved headliner. Here, the group performs a stripped-down set, with core band members Jon Russell, Josiah Johnson, and Charity Rose Thielen present in all songs. The band's latest record, Let's Be Still, was released in late 2013.
