Folk-Americana group The Wandering Hearts are bursting on to the music scene – signing a major new deal with Decca Records and releasing the brand new music video for their single ‘Wish I Could’. Very much mirroring the track’s heartfelt lyrics, the concept for the music video conveys the difficulty of going back to the start and rekindling a relationship once a series of actions have taken place.
The Wandering Hearts were discovered within half an hour of uploading their first demo online and shortly after, were signed to the legendary recording label, Decca Records.
A fresh take on the folk genre, The Wandering Hearts are reminiscent of First Aid Kit, Of Monsters and Men and Chris Stapleton, whilst keeping their British roots at the very heart of their music. Their seamless vocal harmonies and pop sensibility add a twist of Fleetwood Mac.
Band members AJ, Chess, Tim and Tara are all grafters – working hard to hone their skills as musicians, and the standard is there to be seen. The band’s magic is in their live performances. Hearing how naturally their voices blend together, it’s incredible they met almost by chance 18 months ago.

The Wandering Hearts say: “Tara and Tim met at a gig and were introduced soon after to AJ and Chess through mutual friends. Something between us all just clicked – we felt we had stumbled onto something special. We started writing together as a band and quickly developed The Wandering Hearts sound: a truthful lyric and lots of harmonies.”
Now with the backing of a major label, The Wandering Hearts are embarking on a new chapter in their career – performing around the UK, thrilling audiences and garnering new fans. This year, the band has already performed at C2C Festival and to a sold-out crowd supporting Brothers Osbourne, and are planning a trip to Nashville later this year. Music-lovers can catch them next at a string of festivals this summer.
The Wandering Hearts are currently working on their album with producer Pete Hammerton, which promises to be a thrilling debut from this exciting new band, due for release in October 2017.
