HFags featured in AMERICAN SONGWRITER

OMG! A song from our new album (Life Inside The Body) is featured in American Songwriter magazine’s JULY SAMPLER!!!

The song is called “STRANGE SKIES” and was written by our own Page Campbell.  It was recorded by our own Suny Lyons.  And features lots of sibling harmonies and finger-pickin’ guitarwork.  CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!!!

A.S. says: Anchored by acoustic guitars and topped with the sort of effortless, entwined harmony vocals that only seem to come from siblings, “Strange Skies” is an indie-folk ballad for lazy summer mornings and empty country lanes.

So, so, so many things to tell y’all!!!

First of all our own Claire Campbell is performing at The Melting Point in Athens, GA on Wednesday, June 27th at 7:30pm. Finally, an EARLY SHOW IN ATHENS! They said it couldn’t be done.
