Heart Hunters is a soulful husband-and-wife duo who specialize in mystical hobo folk music. They bring wanderlust, a loving spirit, and transformative social politics together in their tunes, and on Thursday, May 23, they are coming to Isis Music Hall in West Asheville.
Heart Hunters’ Drew de Man founded his first band, No River City, in 2001 and spent the next several years making records, touring the country and sharing bills with artists such as Iron & Wine, Calexico, and Alejandro Escovedo.
After a decade away from the spotlight, his new project Heart Hunters — a duo with his wife, singer/songwriter Brianna Blackbird—builds on the moody indie/alt-country sound de Man explored with No River City, updating them for a new era with debut LP American Eclipse. Produced by Peter Case (T-Bone Burnett, John Hiatt, Mike Campbell), American Eclipse puts Heart Hunters’ gorgeously wounded harmonies front-and-center.
The show will be held on May 23 at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $10.
