The word that comes to mind when describing Folk-Americana band The Wandering Hearts’ career so far is ‘whirlwind’. The London-based four-piece have burst onto the scene almost out of nowhere – their chemistry of voices and creative styles seems incredible given that they met only eighteen months ago. Band members Tim and Tara met first at a gig, and were then introduced to the pair that would complete the line-up, Chess and AJ, through mutual friends.
From that point on, there was no turning back. Just thirty minutes after uploading their first demo to SoundCloud, the band were discovered and quickly signed to Decca Records for their debut album, and have since been making waves online and on tour with country music legend Marty Stuart in the UK.
We caught up with the band at the Premises Studios in Hackney, where they recorded the album, to discuss the gorgeous serendipity of their journey and their music so far – watch the video for yourself below.
