The Head and the Heart are a folk rock band from Seattle, Washington. They formed in 2009 with band members 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 put on one hell of a show. I think one of my favourite things about watching them live was how they interacted with one another. Watching Josiah and Jonathan together was almost like watching two little boys playing, they were a lot of fun.
I wish Charity did more solo singing her voice is something! I think it’s the way she pronounces words when she sings that makes her different, all I know is that I love it and I want to hear more of it.
The opening act was Basia Bulat a Canadian folk singer from Toronto, Ontario. Lead singer Basia Bulat rocks the ukulele, Autoharp and vocals. Bulat appeared with her brother Bobby Bulat on drums and Ben Whiteley on guitar and bass. I love going to shows for opening acts, it’s how I find some of my favourite bands.
