ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

Expand your Mind
I first saw H4H play in a little dark dive bar in Orlando (Wills Pub) 2 summers ago . I loved Wills Pub and the patrons When they started playing these crazy instruments and singing and jamming I was blown away. Blues, rock,hard stuff, alternative country It was all great!!
The harmonica was insane I couldnt help but lose myself in the music It just makes youwant to move and dance and enjoy the moment For a 2 piece band they rocked the house The ebb and flow of their music just gets inside you Nice to feel and hear the music Wish they would come up to Red Bank or Asbury Park NJ by me Lots of places that would appreciate their style for sure. Grave and Odette top notch songs by top notch creative musicians Get ya some of H4H !!

PASS THE SHINE
There are some creative sounds, full and fresh, soft and gritty coming from these 2 - yes, 2 playes. I have heard them live a couple times and their sound is as full live, as it sounds on the CD, thanks to the cigarbox/broom stick "GET YOUR LED OUT" electric guitarish instrument they play, along with some great vocal affects. The music is full of red neck trailer love, adventure and danger - perfect for a hard drive at high speeds. This music is in it's own realm and a good addition to anyones collection.

That trailer was rockin' in ALL the best ways.
OH what a righteous gumbo Lucy and Wayne have cooked up in the rolling cauldron of their Airstream! Watch yourself-- if you're tasting this twangy stomping brew while behind the wheel-- you might just come to in the next county. If you're in the house, you may just have to grab the keys and hit the road! This high octane bluesiness, infused with sweet sexiness and the edginess of the road, is just plain addictive.... dangerously good!

Just do it!
Ok, let’s say you’re in the mood to listen to something really blah… because you cant handle more… because you want blah… Then do NOT listen to Lucy & Wayne and The Amairican Stream from Hymn for Her…


Every note will take you someplace else, whether you wanna be on a roller coaster or under an olive tree…

The song “Not” is a great appreciation of Maggi’s great soothing voice for those who love “Flame” . The cover “Thursday” just wants you to give them a hug for knowing and saluting what they were influenced by…. Don’t even get me started on “Odette”… Just buy and listen… You won’t regret ☺

A band you NEED to know about
I first saw Hymn for Her play in a friend's living room. Bands, living rooms - you can't expect too much. But this band BLEW ME AWAY! I have never seen so much music come out of two people in my life. They effortlessly jump between instruments and music genres and you can pick up influences of alternative, punk, bluegrass, classic rock, heavy metal, country - amazing! Their sound on this album is edgy, fun and has a country/punk feel. The Cigar box Guitar is SMOKIN!

Their Road Treats You Right
'Lucy & Wayne and THE AMAIRICAN STREAM' is an album full of fantastic musical surprises. The twang at the beginning of Slips, the first track, would lead a listener to believe that they are in for a traditional bluegrass experience. However that is definitely not the case with this album and being wrong never sounded so good! Hymn For Her’s Maggi and Pierce weave elements of punk, blues, rock and folk into a bluegrass base and the result is a sound that’s as modern and unique as it is familiar and classic. From gripping melodies that perfectly blend both voices, to banjo played at a breakneck pace, to the wild distortion of their signature cigar box guitar, to haunting harmonica and rocking riffs, to emotional lyrics that beg you to ask tough questions, to hooks that have you humming along days after a listen this album truly takes you on a journey. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this duo (yes only 2 players create a sound this big!) a few times and I am impressed at how well this album captures their live sound, especially after learning that it was entirely recorded in their vintage Airstream trailer! If 'Lucy & Wayne and THE AMAIRICAN STREAM' is Hymn For Her’s attempt to take fans on the road with them then myself and everyone I’ve played this album for are asking, when’s the next road trip?

An excellent step in the right direction...
Been following Maggi Jane and Pierce Ternay for a number of years now and have nothing but good things to say about them. This time around, they up it a notch with a little acoustic raunch & slide along with their unique songwriting vocal style. I have them all--- all of the Maggi, Pierce & EJ's and both of the Hymn For Her's--- and it's not because I collect. It's because I love what they do. Listen to the samples. It's in the grooves.
