ABOUT HARDWOOD HEART

Hardwood Heart was born out of compulsion - a desire for guitarist Josh Clinger and mandolin player Jed Nussbaum to keep as musically active and exploratory as possible. What started as two songwriters swapping tunes in backyards and living rooms turned into an impressive catalog of original material and covers woven together with creative improvisation and vocal harmonies. Together they paired up with bassist Caleb Mattis and forged a sound rooted in bluegrass but stretching into jazz, folk, blues, and rock and roll, touching down on heartfelt balladry but extending into high-energy jams that have kept the audience moving at late-night festival slots and busy clubs. The trio maintained a steady work ethic throughout the slowdown in 2020, releasing a steady stream of recordings showcasing the band’s pension for interweaving heartfelt lyricism with deft instrumentalism. Somewhere amongst a busy 2022 that found the band playing over 130 shows in seven states throughout the Rocky Mountain and Pacific Northwest, Hardwood also found time to record their first full-length album. Entitled Growth Rings, the ten songs encapsulate the evolution of a band that has honed their craft in living rooms, on stages, and along the open road.
