?The Heartstring Hunters are an indie-folk band based in Boulder. Rich harmonies, youthful optimism and stories-from-the-road characterize a sound that invites listeners into a musical conversation between friends, an adventure that dances between the space of the open road and a midnight sky.

A genuine collaboration between singer-songwriter Carolyn Nicely, producer/mulit-instrumentalist Daniel Hunter, bassist Alessandro Ceserani, drummer Alex Heaton, and vocalist Rachael Sheaffer, the Heartstring Hunters are currently touring throughout Colorado, sharing stages with artists such as Karla Bonoff, Miner, Good Lovelies, The Leftover Cuties and SHEL.

They have played the Telluride Mountain Film Fest, The Boulder Theater, and the Tedx conferences in Denver, though folks are just as likely to find them spontaneously entertaining crowds at farmer’s markets and street fairs all over the state.

All east-coasters originally, it was the power of connection and a love for music that led them from the forests of Vermont, the rivers of Virginia, and the beaches of Florida all the way to the Rockies.

The Heartstring Hunters are releasing their debut EP this year and while many listeners lovingly match Nicely’s lead vocals to the tones of Joni Mitchell, their new music also incorporates other times and influences such as Feist, Lavender Diamond and Matt Corby. In the summer, they plan to hit the road to tour heavily in support of this new release, along with their camper and two beloved canine companions, Tyrone and Dixie.
