Lucy Tight & Wayne Waxing are "Hymn For Her", a band that hails from anywhere they can park their trailer.
H4H live, tour and record in their 16 foot, 1961 Bambi Airstream (comes with dog and baby). Their new summer release 2010, 'Lucy & Wayne and THE AMAIRICAN STREAM' was entirely recorded in their classic trailer on a coast to coast U.S tour. They stopped at various campgrounds and friends’ driveways between shows, set up their gear in their Bambi/home recording studio, rolled tape and rocked out. Many photographs and videos were taken during this endeavour. (Music videos will be released throughout 2010.) The album was mixed by Jim Diamond (who did the first White Stripes record) and captures the live, raucous sounds of H4H. Armed with 2 bullet mics, a three-stringed broom handle/cigar box, banjo, dobro, bass drum, hi-hat, and harp, this 'lil duo causes massive earthquakes wherever they play.

Review from Live Show/ Orlando Weekly:
this week’s best surprise was Philadelphia’s Hymn for Her. The domestic duo tour and record in a vintage 16-foot travel trailer with their toddler. Their amalgam of folk, blues and bluegrass ain’t no easygoing sweet-tea affair. It’s an intensely haunting, alternative vision that sometimes strikes cutting moods.
He basically plays a one-man band setup with drums and banjo, while she makes them a full band. They employ a cigar-box guitar with only a few strings that, when fed through her pedals and played with a slide, has a wild, untamed drone that’s just enormous in presence. But despite their intriguing instrumentation, a big part of their sound is the vocal dynamism between the two, like when they rocked a Zeppelin cover where the typical guitar parts were performed with their voices.
Together, it all weaves extraordinary atmosphere. From otherworldly meditations to fire-breathing rave-ups where banjos are banged like bongos, their live show is riveting and transcendental. Hymn for Her conjure a grippingly modern vision of folk that’s completely free of cliché. Do yourself a solid and check ’em out.
