The Head and the Heart performing at the ACL Live Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on July 10, 2019, with Jonathan Russell, Charity Rose Thielen, Matthew Gervais, Kenny Hensley, Tyler Williams, and Chris Zasche.
All the band members Charity Rose Tielen, Chris Zasche, Kenny Hensley, Tyler Wilson, Josiah Johnson and Jonathan Russell met after a series of open mic nights in a pub in Seattle. The band name, as explained by Johnson is based on the concept that “your head is telling you to be stable and find a good job, you know in your heart that this is what you're supposed to do even if it's crazy.”

The band spent most of their formulative years touring around the Northwest region of the United States, and released their first self-titled album in 2010, and then was re-released when they signed with Sub Pop Records in 2011. Having gained a lot of popularity, the band toured the United States, as well as Europe as the supporting act for various other bands such as Vampire Weekend, Dr. Dog, Iron and Wine and Death Cab For Cutie. They even made their debut television appearance on Conan at the end of 2011.

The band’s music was also featured on various, widely popular television shows. “Rivers and Roads” was used for both Chuck as well as How I Met Your Mother, and “Down In The Valley” was used for the British television show, “Beaver Falls.” Following the success of the first album, they released their sophomore album, “Let’s Be Still” in October 2013, which was entirely produced by all members of the band with the help of Shawn Simmons.
