The Head and the Heart released their live album Rivers and Roads: The Head And The Heart – Live from Pike Place Market today as an Amazon exclusive. The record is a companion LP to the band’s concert film of the same name.

The film and live album document The Head And The Heart’s August 2019 rooftop performance in their hometown of Seattle at the famed Pike Place Market. The concert literally and figuratively marked The Head And The Heart’s ascent over the past decade.

The Head And The Heart released a statement detailing the concert and their experience busking in the iconic Seattle locale. Read the band’s words below:

At the beginning of our journey as a band, a few of us would busk in a stairwell below the main entrance of Pike Place Market because the acoustics were free, our songs were tested via passers by and sometimes we would gather enough gifted cash to share a good meal,” the band explains of the meaning behind the performance.

Ten years later, in August of 2019, we found ourselves performing on top of this same market to tens of thousands of people – strangers, friends, close family and the many who have supported us along the way. Our band has gone through extreme highs and lows, experiences of joy and of loss and we’ve continued on, reminded that people change, bands change, the story deepens and widens, but a gratitude for the city that raised us up will never falter.

The Head And The Heart previewed the film and album earlier this week with a video clip of “Down In The Valley.” The film and LP also contain favorites like “Honeybee” and “Missed Connection” as well as “Lost My Mind,” the first song the band wrote in Seattle.

Rivers and Roads: The Head And The Heart – Live from Pike Place Market can be heard and seen via Amazon. Check out a trailer below:
