Hire The Head and the Heart:
The Head and the Heart is an American indie folk band. They were formed in the summer of 2009 by Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar, percussion) and Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar, percussion).
The members met and the band was formed through a series of open mic nights at Seattle’s Conor Byrne pub in Ballard, Seattle.

Josiah Johnson had moved to Seattle from Southern California to attend graduate school, and Jonathan Russell had recently relocated from Richmond, Virginia. They met keyboardist Kenny Hensley, who had also moved to Seattle to pursue musical score-writing, and Charity Rose Thielen, who had recently returned from a year studying abroad in Paris at Sciences Po.
Drummer Tyler Williams had been in the band Prabir and The Substitutes in Richmond, Virginia and moved to Seattle to be a part of the Head and The Heart after hearing a demo that Russell sent of the song “Down In The Valley”. Chris Zasche was bartending at the Conor Byrne Pub, working aftercare shifts at The Perkins School, and playing in Seattle bands The Maldives and Grand Hallway. He was the last to be added to original lineup.
Josiah Johnson explained how the name of the band was chosen: “Your head is telling you to be stable and find a good job, you know in your heart that this [the band] is what you’re supposed to do even if it’s crazy.”
In 2010 and 2011 the band toured extensively through in both the United States and Europe, and opened for Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, Dr. Dog, Dave Matthews, The Low Anthem, The Decemberists, Iron & Wine, My Morning Jacket, and Death Cab For Cutie, as well as headlining their own shows.
In October of 2013, the band’s second album, Let’s Be Still, was released. Frontman Johnson said of it “…this is the first time that we produced as a full band. This one is everyone’s influences equally present and prevalent throughout the album”.
James Christopher Monger of AllMusic said of the album: “The group’s predilection for heartfelt, Avett Brothers-meets-Fleet Foxes roots rock is apparent right out of the gate with “Homecoming Heroes” and “Another Story,” both of which utilize familiar folk-rock architecture to spin earnest and familiar tales concerning the two body parts from which the group takes its name.”
On November 2, 2013, Let’s Be Still reached number 10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The band spent much of 2014 touring in support of the album. Thielen spent time writing for other artists, including Mavis Staples, while she married fellow musician Matt Gervais.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE HEAD AND THE HEART?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE HEAD AND THE HEART for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE HEAD AND THE HEART booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE HEAD AND THE HEART, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
