The Head and The Heart is an indie folk band from Seattle, Washington that formed in the summer 2009. The band consists of 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). They are signed to Sub Pop Records, and have released two studio albums.
When the band signed to Sup Pop Records in 2010, they remastered their debut self titled album. They re-recorded their song “Sounds Like Hallelujah,” and re-released the album in CD format. The band toured extensively through 2012 and 2011 to promote their music in both the United States and Europe. They have opened for Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, Dr. Dog, Dave Matthews, Iron & Wine, and many more. Later in 2011, Seattle’s City Arts Magazine named them “Seattle’s best New Band.”
The Head and The Hearts second album, Let’s Be Still, was released in October of 2013. Their first track off the new album was titled “Shake.” In an article with the Rolling Stone, Frontman Johnson stated, “This is the first time that we produced as a full band. This one is everyone’s influences equally present and prevalent throughout the album.”
