June Updates!

Bonjour!

After a nice little 3 week hiatus, while Ashton hung out at the Cannes Film Festival in France, we have a busy June ahead! Here’s what we’ve got going on:

While Ashton experienced nothing but 70-80 degree weather and sunshine in France, apparently it’s been storming pretty consistently in Atlanta, and it doesn’t seem to be lessening up. SO, although we have two shows this upcoming weekend, they are both outside with a possibility of cancellation due to rain…

June 2ndSuwanee Food Truck Friday – 7 PM: We’re very excited for our first time at FTF! Let’s hope the rain holds out…

June 3rdFire Stone Wood Fired Pizza and Grill – 7 PM: Our show here on May 6th was canceled due to rain. Hopefully, this one will go as planned.

June 10th – Two Birds Taphouse – 9 PM: Back at Two Birds, #reunited.

June 23rd – Golden Tripod Awards Party at TERMINUS: Student films + awards + party + The Hearsay= #RIPJustKilledTheClub. Haven’t heard of the newest convention/festival to hit ATL? Do yourself a fave and check it out.

 

Welcome to our site…

…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 🙂
