The Wandering Hearts
With their three-part vocal harmonies, heartfelt lyrics and genre-blending signature sound, The Wandering Hearts burst onto the scene in 2018 with their debut album Wild Silence. Signed to Decca Records (discovered a mere 30mins after uploading their first track to Soundcloud), the London-based band kicked off a whirlwind year by winning the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at the UK Americana Awards before heading out on a sold-out album tour.
After being personally invited to the US by music legend Marty Stuart, The Wandering Hearts became the first UK band to debut at two of the most prestigious venues in Nashville – The Ryman Auditorium and The Grand Ole Opry – in the same week. Receiving a rapturous welcome and standing ovations, the band were invited back to the Opry the following week, after a trip to Memphis to support Marty Stuart at Graceland – live recordings from this show feature on the Deluxe edition of their album.
A busy summer of UK festivals followed, including Latitude, Black Deer and BST Hyde Park, before the band whipped back to Nashville for Americanafest, then returned home to finish the year with their second sold-out headline tour.
2019 has seen the band working on their second album in both the US and UK in-between shows and their first festival headline appearances in both countries. Further live highlights include the O2 arena in London for C2C festival, CMAFest in Nashville, a return to the Opry and Bluebird Cafe, supporting Jack Savoretti on his UK summer outdoor dates, and most recently, supporting Justin Townes Earle on his US tour.
