The Wandering Hearts
London, United Kingdom
The Wandering Hearts achieved their second consecutive #1 on the UK official Americana Chart as they built on the breakthrough success of 2018's Wild Silence debut with last summer's self-titled second album, recorded between Woodstock and Omaha with acclaimed producers such as Simone Felice, David Baron and Mike Mogis. Arriving to a second wave of critical acclaim and again championed by Bob Harris at BBC Radio 2 (who previously awarded them his Breakthrough Artist at the UK Americana Awards), the album cemented the trio's reputation as one of the leading lights in British Folk-Americana - as underlined by their further nomination for Album Of The Year at the UK Americana Awards 2022, alongside Yola and The Staves. The only British act to debut at both the iconic Ryman Theatre and The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville in the same week, The Wandering Hearts have shared stages and tours across the UK and US with artists such as the late greats Tom Petty, John Prine and Justin Townes Earle, and Margo Price, Lukas Nelson, Robert Plant and Eagles. Signed to Chrysalis Records for their third album (to be released in 2023) the band put more focus on their world-renowned three-part harmonies to explore their Folk-Rock influences, blending flavours that bring to mind Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac and contemporaries like Milk Carton Kids and First Aid Kit.
