"If you don't know the blues, there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll, or any other form of popular music." - Keith Richards
There is no mistaking the bluesy undercurrent that forms the bedrock of Well Hung Heart's raw and uncompromising Rock sound. British born guitarist Robin Davey cut his teeth with the Blues elite, jamming onstage with the likes of Buddy Guy and recording with Mick Jagger. Davey quickly secured a place as the youngest ever inductee into the British Blues Hall Of Fame, and has built a reputation as an eclectic and cutting-edge musical mind.
Singer Greta Valenti grew up amongst the deep-rooted musical traditions of New Orleans. Though the two's early years were spent on opposite sides of the Atlantic, they have both found common ground in their passion for the raw honesty of music, delivered in its most unprocessed and unrestricted form. With a dose of Hendrix, and a nod to PJ Harvey, Well Hung Heart is just as comfortable channeling Nirvana or the Beastie Boys, as they are Leadbelly or Led Zeppelin.
Well Hung Heart record just as they play live - stripped down to the core, void of multiple takes and studio trickery. Well Hung Heart finished off their first year in existence with high profile shows both sides of the Atlantic, appearing at London's prestigious O2 Academy, and at the Make Music Festival in Pasadena, opening for Grouplove and Cults.
With a series of breathtaking, self-directed YouTube videos establishing the band's presence, Well Hung Heart have managed to build a burgeoning fan base, with both their blistering live performances, and their creativity in the digital age.
