My Morning Jacket and Jackson Browne to Headline Newport Folk Festival – – This made it in for two reasons; first it’s The New York Times, and second because just like they spell The New York Times with a capital “T” they should have done the same for The Head and The Heart. Personally it makes no difference, but it’s The New York Times.

David on THATH:

“I discovered The Head and the Heart while covering the Dr. Dog coming home show (March 2011) at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. I was instantly attracted to the bands lush harmonies, stage dynamics and elegant delivery of their unique song style and performance. They were a pleasure to shoot, and I have been following their growth throughout this past year. Having the opportunity to photograph The Head and the Heart at such a small and local Philly event (Philly has an AMAZING music scene) was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!”
