Hey We Heart Music,

We are an LA-based band, Heartwood, in the midst of releasing a set of A-side B-side singles, the second of which is this Friday, April 10th. We reached out to you about our previous single in the series, "You Should Really Thank Me," and are following up with this one to see if you're interested in premiering or featuring us the day of the release. We've been huge fans We Heart Music for a while and thought this would be a great opportunity to reach out. Attached we have our press release, short bio, and a link to the single. Check it out and let us know if we can work something out!


New Single:

After a year of recording and rehearsing, Heartwood is set to release their first batch of thoroughly crafted music. The band will be releasing a 7” Series: 5 pairings of A-side and B-side singles, the second of which (You Should Really Thank Me/Nothing Can Do You Wrong) to be released on April 10th. The 10 songs were internally created, having been written, recorded, produced, and mixed by only the 4 members.

Heartwood is an Alternative Indie Rock band from Downtown Los Angeles. After meeting in 2013, they quickly realized that their musical energy and camaraderie was undeniable. Their influences include rock legends such as Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Led Zeppelin and The Beach Boys, as well as modern acts like Radiohead, The Arctic Monkeys, and Green Day. Based on a deep-rooted appreciation for their heroes of the past, the band creates their own stamp on Rock n’ Roll with a fusion of pop-oriented hooks, creative soundscaping and in-your-face trombone solos. Heartwood is on a mission to bring rock back to the forefront of music, and with these new elements they are sculpting a rock and roll of the future.

Teddy Lasry , sax player of French band : MAGMA died May 14 .


John Hawken keyboard player of the original Renaissance as well as member of the Strawbs passed away on May 16.


From Dave Cousins FB page:


It is with deep sadness that I must tell you that John Hawken passed away peacefully with his family at his side at 2pm US Eastern Standard Time today.

John Hawken joined Strawbs in late 1973. His contribution to the Strawbs legacy was immense and with John on board Strawbs played consistently to the band’s biggest audiences. The breakthrough for Strawbs in the US and Canada was the 1974 album ‘Hero and Heroine’. The following 1975 album ‘Ghosts’ charted even higher in the Billboard charts. John’s keyboard work contributed greatly to our success.

John Hawken was renowned for his sensitive touch on the piano, most notably on ‘The Winter Long’ from ‘Autumn’. John became highly adept on Mellotron and Moog synthesizer, defining the backbone of the Strawbs sound.


Dear all,

In Musicians and singers who died in 2024 there is missing:

[8 May 2024] John Barbata (American drummer for The Turtles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Jefferson Starship), 79


Teddy Lasry est parti sur Sohïa

C'est avec tristesse que nous avons appris le décès de Teddy Lasry survenu il y a quelques jours. Il avait rejoint Magma à l'automne 1969, participant à la genèse du premier double album en composant un magnifique titre, Sohïa. Bénéficiant de quelques contacts dans la "chanson", il permit à Magma d'enregistrer avec Gilles Elbaz et Jean Max Brua pour ne citer que les plus connus.
Avec le scission de la fin 70, il pris véritablement en main la section de cuivres, assurant les arrangements pour l'album Magma 2 tout en composant un nouveau morceau en face 2. Il participa aux premières versions live de MDK (voir le récent coffret à ce sujet) lors de la fameuse tournée des MJC de 1972. Suite au "disband" de la fin de l'été, il hésita un temps, Christian Vander lui ayant proposé de remplacer Faton au piano... Il quitta le groupe en Octobre 72, après avoir composé le morceau figurant dans le film Moi y en a Vouloir des sous tout en dirigeant les sessions de cuivres au printemps lors de l'enregistrement de MDK ainsi qu'à New York en Juillet 73. Son dernier passage fut assez fugitif lors de la Rétrospective de Juin 1980...

Par la suite il se consacra à l'illustration sonore (un nombre de disques assez conséquent) avec deux sorties officielles dont le E=MC2 réédité récemment.

Avec lui une partie du son du Magma des origines est partie pour toujours... Pensées pour les siens.
