The Wandering Hearts

Mar 17, 2023

8:55pm – 9:25pm CT


The Wandering Hearts achieved their second #1 on the UKs official Americana charts with their 2021 self-titled second album, recorded in Woodstock with producers Simone Felice and David Baron.

Arriving to a second wave of critical acclaim and again championed by Bob Harris (who previously awarded them his Breakthrough Artist Award), the album cemented the trio's reputation as one of the leading lights in British Folk - as underlined by their further nomination for Album Of The Year at the UK Americana Awards 2022 alongside The Staves and Yola.

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 Tom Petty, Justin Townes Earle, John Prine, Margo Price, Lukas Nelson, Robert Plant and Eagles.

Signed to Chrysalis Records for their upcoming third album the band put more focus on their world renowned three-part harmonies to explore their Folk-Rock influence, blending flavours that bring to mind Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac and contemporaries like Milk Carton Kids and First Aid Kit.
