Hailing from Seattle, Washington, The Head and the Heart was formed in the summer of 2009 by Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar, percussion). The band also includes Charity Rose Thielen (violin, guitar, vocals), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (piano), and Tyler Williams (drums). After two albums, the group signed to Warner Bros. Records and released their latest album Signs of Light last fall.

Recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), Signs Of Light crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of The Head and the Heart's finest work. Lead single "All We Ever Knew," written during the Let's Be Still era but never captured to the band's satisfaction until now, spent 9 weeks at AAA radio and hit #1 at Alternative radio, the band's first #1 at the format. The Head and The Heart has performed the hit single on Ellen, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, CBS Saturday Morning, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Late Show With James Corden. Throughout the record, the colors are brighter, the electric guitars are louder and the musical touchstones more universal. The head-nodding "Rhythm & Blues,"reminiscent of classic Fleetwood Mac, also hit #1 at AAA and the latest track "City of Angels," is working its way up the charts. Signs of Light debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Rock Album Chart.

The group's 2011 self-titled debut became one of Sub Pop Records' best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to international acclaim. The formative experiences both on and off the stage and incessant touring that followed heavily informed their 2013 follow-up Let's Be Still. On the new album Signs Of Light, that gamut of emotions is felt most deeply on the Josiah Johnson-penned title track, which none of the other members had ever heard until they happened to walk in on him playing it over and over at the piano during pre-production in El Paso, Texas. "It was one of those moments where no one talks," Russell remembers. "No one needs the chords; no one is looking up. You simply pick up your instrument and play. The next thing you know, nearly 10 minutes have gone by and you have no idea how or why or what just happened."

The Head and the Heart have been making their rounds at all of the biggest festivals (see current dates below) this year, including Coachella, Sasquatch!, Governor's Ball, Bonnaroo, Monterey International Pop Festival, Mountain Jam, Newport Folk Festival and Lollapalooza, as well as supporting Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers at Hyde Park and playing two nights at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. They are making one last lap around the U.S. for 2017 this Fall, supported by The Shelters, The Lone Bellow in New York, Dr. Dog in Nashville, and Phosphorescent in D.C.
