…and to our first blog post!
Proper photos, an EP release, a website…we’ve really been getting on our game in 2017 #swag
So here’s more about what we’ve been up to lately:
Tiny Fractions EP – Our 4-song EP features three original songs and one of our mash-ups (‘Timber’ by Pitbull/Ke$ha with ‘2 Heads’ by Coleman Hell). All songs were recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeremy Nichols at CoCoa Break Studios in Woodstock, GA. We’re super excited to share these with the world, so take a listen and give us a follow on Spotify!
Photo Shoot – We finally got some professional-quality photos…we figured with the EP release it was time! Our good friend Emily Holst is a fantastic photographer and did a wonderful job with our awkward selves. Photos were taken at various locations around the Marietta Square, mainly at our favorite two bars Johnnie MacCrackens and Two Birds Taphouse.
500 Songs For Kids – We love to perform in the 500 Songs For Kids event benefitting the Songs For Kids Foundation every year. Although this is the first year for The Hearsay, it was Ashton’s 6th year and Travis’ 3rd. It’s an amazing organization with the mission to enrich the lives of children suffering from illness and hardship. We performed on April 1st with the song “Believe” by Cher (watch the video here)! And BONUS, they asked us to do an encore performance on April 28th– we’ll be performing one of our usual covers Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” at Smith’s Olde Bar.
BBQ & Brews Festivals – We got our start as a band a little over a year ago when we were asked to play at the first BBQ & Brews Festival in Canton, GA. Created by a friend of Ashton’s, the BBQ & Brews team has been very good to us– we played at the one in Ellijay in September, and just played the one in Cartersville this past weekend on April 1st. We’ll be at this year’s Canton festival on April 29th!
That’s enough for now, I think 🙂
