The Head and the Heart will continue the run of big name acts when they roll into DC’s newest venue, The Anthem, on Friday, October 27.
The band is continuing to tour for their third album, Signs of Light, with this show constituting their second stop in DC in just over a year (having played DAR on October 22, 2016).
The live band is currently comprised of pianist Kenny Hensley, bassist Chris Zasche, drummer Tyler Williams, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charity Rose Thielen, and vocalist/guitarist Jonathan Russell. Co-founder Josiah Johnson continues to take a break from the band on his road to recovery, though he has made appearances at some shows.
Each of THATH’s albums have had a slightly different sound, but at their core, each one retains the indie folk kernel that propelled their first album, The Head and the Heart, to great success on Sub Pop Records. Their sound has continuously expanded on successive albums (Let’s Be Still and Signs of Light), turning the focus from smaller, more intimate songs to louder, more elaborate, and layered songs. Their growth is an organic one, and their sound should fit well on the stage of the new Anthem.
