September 2014 – From Texas’ upper east side in the rural arts hamlet of Winnsboro, award-winning performing songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne (self-proclaimed “organic song farmers”) tour nationally, serving up seasoned original songs mixed with fresh harvests of homegrown music in a spirited and soulful genre they define simply as "Texas Folk,” with subtle jazz and blues overtones.
Adler & Hearne's latest release is “Second Nature,” produced by Texas music icon Lloyd Maines, recorded at The Zone in Dripping Springs, TX outside Austin, and officially released on Labor Day, September 1, 2014. In June, the duo was honored by the Texas Commission on the Arts, being named to the state’s official Texas Touring Roster for the September 2014-1016 touring season.
In concert, she (Adler) and he (Hearne) blend their voices and instruments in a spirited signature sound that reflects their true second-nature connection through song. The two met in Nashville while on solo musical journeys. Years later their paths merged in Texas, where they formed the duo Adler & Hearne, along with their indie label Spring Hollow Records.
In 2005, they released a house concert recording aptly named “Opposites Attract.” Returning to Nashville in 2009 (the city where they first met), Adler & Hearne made their debut studio recording “To The Heart” produced by Rick Clark, and in 2010 named among the Top 20 releases by the Folk DJ community. Their 2012 release “Adler & Hearne Live at Eddie’s Attic,” showcases songs from a June 2011 concert on the legendary stage in Decatur, GA, and features special guest Michael Johnson with whom they co-billed on that summer night.
In addition to producer Lloyd Maines’ instrumental contributions, their new release “Second Nature,” (released September 1, 2014) features guitar-slinger/songwriter daughter Kate Hearne on lead guitar on several of the CD’s 13 songs. Other special musical guests featured are Glenn Fukunaga (bass), Chris Gage (keys), Terri Hendrix (harmonica and harmony vocals), Pat Manske (percussion and engineer) and Steve Smith (mandolin).
Adler & Hearne's music has grown deep roots in the sandy soil and piney woods of their Spring Hollow Organic Song Farm. The duo’s musical formative years share common experiences in folk, gospel and classical music – organic influences that inform their singing and songwriting. But the subject matter of their songs knows no bounds, nor does their musical style. Their live sets range from crooning songs of love and longing, losing and finding – to covering touchy subjects with unexpected musical overtones – to camping it up with modern day spirituals steeped in dry wit. The two pride themselves on their multigenerational audience appeal.
Adler & Hearne's favorite places to sow songs in people’s hearts include house concerts, community concert halls and folk venues, church coffeehouses and Sunday morning church services, festivals and conferences, schools and libraries, and venues of all description that provide an opportunity to have a meaningful connection with a listening audience. Coast to coast and worldwide.
