The Head and The Heart

The Head and the Heart - FUV Live - 2013

by Rita Houston

The eagerly anticipated sophomore album from The Head and the Heart, Let's Be Still, is finally out. The album addresses the challenges of life on the road, but not in an Eagles "Take It Easy" way. The songs deal with the more universal aspect of leading busy lives while remembering to slow down once in a while. The band stopped by Studio A to play us some of their new songs, and I got a chance to talk with Josiah Johnson and Jonathan Russell about the making of the new record.

Newport Folk Festival: Day 3

Sometimes it felt like we were paying as much attention to the weather radar as the music, but in the end, there was sun.

Day 3 at Newport had quite a finale: the skies cleared up, and a mutual admiration society of Dawes, Jonathan Wilson, Tom Morello and Sara Watkins held court on the Fort stage with Jackson Browne as their leader, soaking it all up. "Lawyers, Guns and Money" with a Tom Morello solo... Maybe the first time an electric guitar has been played with teeth at Newport? Probably a tie with "These Days" for my highlight of Jackson's set.

The Head and The Heart - Words and Music - 2011

by Claudia Marshall
This weekend's Newport Folk Festival is a far cry (and a lot of miles) from their origins at a Seattle open mic night, but the 6 members of The Head and The Heart are familiar with big gigs thanks to the success of their self-titled album. Learn more about the sound and story of the band, as they join host Claudia Marshall in FUV's Studio A. [05/16/2011]
