The Head and The Heart: Northwest Folk and More

The Head and Heart are not brand new to Seattle and the Northwest.  People who follow music might have heard the name, and soon enough, they will spread much further.  I was able to see them open for David Bazan last weekend.  A lot of people came just to see The Head and the Heart, funneling out after they finished their 40-minute set.  I wasn’t far behind them, because Bazan just couldn’t compare to the smooth, fun sound that The Head and The Heart put out.  They can switch from a Pop-folk rock out, to a sweet folk ballad in a matter of seconds.  Led by three singers with nice voices, adding their own style to the harmonies, they build on the northwest folk tradition and make it more fun.  I recommend seeing them live.

    love head and the heart but i dont think its really fair to compare them to Bazan at all. Completely different shows. While the head and the heart are more of a crowd pleaser, Bazans music is on a much deeper level. If you stuck around long enough you’d notice that the crowd that stayed was generally a bit older and much quieter than the head and the heart crowd. love both bands but to say Bazan couldn’t compare, sounds a bit ignorant.

    Fair point, i was just more in the mood for the head and the heart that night. Didn’t mean to speak poorly about Bazan. i know that he has some very dedicated fans.
