Hem is an indie folk band that is known to have mapped out one of the most appealing soundscapes in the contemporary American music scene. In just a few years with a couple of albums, its music was appreciated with reviews like ‘an effortless timeless appeal’ and now having released six studio albums, the band’s fame has reached across the world. Its concerts are loved by folk and rock fans globally that accelerate the sales of Hem tickets every time before its live performance.
Hem has its roots in New York City and has been entertaining the music lovers since late nineties. Nine friends got together and worked on the band’s debut album ‘Rabbit Songs’. It was released in 2002 and its music was appreciated not only to be raw and rusty but also to be cinematic and sweeping. With singles like Now the Day is Over and Lord, Blow Out the Moon, Please, it set standards for new Americana music for the critics and listeners. Washington Post reviewed Hem’s first album in words, ‘The band has defined a sound-detailed and dreamy, intimate and horizon-eyed’. This album proved that Hem is one of the promising new acts of the decade and it actually tried to live up to it by working effortlessly for its new releases.
Hem’s music is a fine combination of traditional Americana and rock music which is evident in its second album, ‘Eveningland’. It songs were as sparkly as they were in its first album and this had a positive effect on its fan following. The growing fame doubled with its third studio release, ‘No Word from Tom’. It is a collection of rarities, covers, demos and live recordings that featured highlights of their musical journey spanning over five years. It also made apparent to the world that music evolves and grows over time. This album apart from featuring covers of the well known artists included the remakes of its own hit singles. Songs like Cincinnati Traveller with a slight change in lyrics became a new song altogether called, The City and the Traveller. This, along with remakes of the other most wanted singles worked out positively for the sales of the album.
Although Hem started off as a low budget collaboration with a couple of musicians but with the passage of time has grown to have nine members in total. Its dedication to explore the American Songbook and its drive to make additions to it has led to the release of six studio albums in total to date. It has also performed at the Symphony Hall with Boston Pops and at the orchestra’s annual event Edgefest. Hem has recently been noticed for a brand new production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and won a ‘Drama Desk Award’ nomination in the category of the Outstanding Music in a Play.
The current lineup of the band includes Dan Messe, Gary Maurer, Steve Curtis, George Rush, Heather Zimmerman, Bob Hoffnar, Sally Ellyson and Mark Brotter. These exceptionally talented members apart from having amazing vocals are apt in playing piano accordion, guitar, mandolin and drums.
Hem’s musical journey spans over a decade and so far it has been successful in achieving its goal to stand out for its music.
