Nashville band Humming House recently released their third full-length album Companion via Soundly Music. The follow-up to 2015’s Revelries, the new album finds the Music City quartet expanding their sound into a new territory, creating sonic landscapes that remain compelling and honest while still maintaining a sense of intimacy that is derived from their roots of making music as friends all together in the same room. Today they released the video for “Hope In My Head” ahead of their homecoming show at Cannery Ballroom later this week following months of being on the road.
The story of Companion mirrors the story of the band: it’s one of collaboration, experimentation, and showing up for each other over and again. There are songs of hope and of desperation so that the prevailing mood is one of exchange and balance. While their established acoustic sound still centers the creative impulses of the songs, the added electric influence and expanded instrumentation imbue the new songs with a dynamism that is irresistible.
Humming House is Justin Wade Tam, Bobby Chase, Joshua Wolak, and Benjamin Jones. The band formed organically out of jam sessions that Tam held in his living room in East Nashville – evidence that some of the best projects come from spontaneous collaboration and the subsequent seeing it through. Now, three albums and six years later, Humming House continues to embody what is best about the Nashville each transplant chooses to call home.
