Nominated by Denver Westword for Best Folk Band, The Heartstring Hunters are a 5-piece indie-folk-rock band from Boulder, Colorado with a debut CD release hot off the press. Their self-titled EP was recorded at Wind Over The Earth Studios in Longmont, CO, and has been well received by KGNU, The Marquee, and Denver Westword along with thousands of fans on the front range and all over the globe.
The Heartstring Hunters are currently touring throughout Colorado and the West, sharing stages with artists such as SHEL, The Good Lovelies, The Dead Horses, Karla Bonoff, The Leftover Cuties and MINER. They recently performed at Pagosa Folk’n Bluegrass Festival, Telluride MountainFilm Fest, The Boulder Theater, and the TedX conferences in Denver, though you’re just as likely to find them spontaneously entertaining crowds at farmer’s markets and street fairs all over the state. All east-coasters originally, it was the power of connection and a love for music that led them from the forests of Vermont, the rivers of Virginia, and the beaches of Florida all the way to the Rockies.
“The Heartstring Hunters are a young energetic band who are taking on the world. Their blend of pop and folk create an energetic brand of music rarely heard amongst the more conservative folk-grass bands of the modern era.”
-Colorado Central Magazine
“With Carolyn Hunter’s light, dancing vocals as its centerpiece, The Heartstring Hunters’ debut release is a showcase of the creative minds of Hunter and her husband/guitarist Daniel Hunter. The songs come across as quite sanguine, even when they sing about the realities of life like they do on “Rich In Love.” The album is, as they say, “an adventure that dances between the space of the open road and a midnight sky.”
– The Marquee
“An odyssey of love. Rich harmonies, youthful optimism, and laid back grooves fuse the spirit of Laurel Canyon with the band’s more diverse influences of jazz, rock, and modern folk.
