Oak & the Acorn
Glad Hearts is like the family car when your older brother first gets his license. We're out to see what we can see, and pick up some friends along the way. Through the motion blurs and cracked windshields, we've been lucky enough to see and hear a lot of beauty, and the songs are meant to be a token in tribute of all that beauty. Here are some very kind things people have said about the record: 'Whether it's the sparse, low-key music or the words that go with them, it tugs at the heartstrings deftly. The Oak and the Acorn is one of those albums that engages you emotionally and builds to a great hopeful catharsis at the end that leaves you drained but happier for it.' -Ryan Simmons, Wonka Vision 'Glad Hearts, as their name suggests, succeed in bringing forth the joy and naturalness inherent in music, shining with a uniquely diverse and dense sound derived from a huge instrumental assortment that brings the fantastic into the everyday.' -Susi Muhr, The Deli NYC 'Masterful percussion and lively guitar riffs on tracks such as 'West Fast Enough' and 'We'll Need Our Blood,'...will make you an instant fan.' -Nereida Fernandes, Exclaim! 'Your songs have hope in them.' -Ryan's Grandma Thank you for listening!
