Heart Hunters is a duo comprising Brianna McGeehan and Drew de Man. They specialize in mystical hobo folk music, bringing wanderlust, loving spirit and transformative social politics together in their tunes. Brianna and Drew’s voices blend in richly hued harmony, wrapping themselves around songs of love and loss, spiritual yearning and social justice. Heart Hunters’ luscious harmonies are often decorated with South American drum or pedal steel.

And now coming to the news we mentioned in the titled.

They are making a dream record !

We were anxious about the reason for the upcoming record to be called as “Dream Record” by them. Here is what we find out.

 

” We’re calling this the “Dream Record” for a number of reasons. We’re so excited about the possibilities and the energy of it and it’s a synthesis of all our experiences and work together. We have been making music for five years. Although we’ve put out an EP and an album (and prior projects too), nothing we’ve recorded so far has the energy and vision of what we’re poised to do.

Peter Case will be producing this record!

We first connected with Peter Case in San Francisco two years ago, but his music feels like an old friend. I (Drew) was given a cassette of the acclaimed Man With the Blue Post-Modern, Fragmented, Neo-Traditionalist Guitar album for my 15th birthday. Case’s top-notch song craft set a high standard and influenced me deeply. Listening to his records is part of a good education in production as well. When we began thinking of what kind of record we wanted to make, it occurred to us that maybe we knew just the guy to produce it. His last record is as good a soundtrack as you could want for the present social landscape of the US.

A highly respected teacher of songwriting, Peter will spend time with us, revising and arranging the material, and doing pre-production. Then we’ll hit the studio to capture the magic and share it with the world. The songs cover everything from love and ghosts to spiritual thirst and social justice. There’s a lot of wonder and joy in there, but no looking away from the challenging realities of the times we live in. One thing we see clearly in Peter’s songs is a skillful expression of folk music’s tradition of populist storytelling and the social vision to accompany that. We offer you a volume of songs to uplift you politically, teach you a new hymn or two, and hopefully leave you a little dazed, grinning.”.

 

So the record is expected to be released in next few months. They also successfully ran a kickstarter campaign for this. Its surely going to be fun listening to this much anticipated record.
