Not long ago these rising stars of indie folk-rock were busking on Seattle street corners, strumming their acoustic guitars, stomping their feet, and singing in harmony to attract the attention of passersby. The Head and the Heart's unbridled energy informed their original material, which was honed in local clubs and captured on their 2011 debut album for the Sub Pop label.

Critical acclaim for their new album Let’s Be Still points to an enduring career ahead. “From the lush chamber-pop of ‘Homecoming Heroes’ to the groovy ‘Summertime’ and the roots-rocking ‘Shake,’ the album is the work of a more well-rounded ensemble,” says Rolling Stone.

“The group’s predilection for heartfelt, Avett Brothers-meets-Fleet Foxes roots rock is apparent right out of the gate,” says All Music Guide.

The Belle Brigade opens. Sister-brother duo Barbara and Ethan Gruska are the grandchildren of former Boston Pops conductor John Williams. While influenced by Simon and Garfunkel, John Lennon, and the Everly Brothers, their sound is uniquely their own. The Los Angeles Times calls their 2014 release Just Because “a knockout of a new album.”
