Cementing their place in a burgeoning Charlotte music scene, The Hawthornes are a step forward to music-retro. Fusing imaginative, melodic hooks with sultry vocals, fiery guitars, and luscious grooves, The Hawthornes color the musical winds with unmistaken character.
This widely-influenced group of musicians has taken time to craft an album that stretches to the edge of their varied styles, noting that most fans of music can find familiarity in elements of their sound.
The band operates in somewhat of an Omni-genre, combining the backgrounds of each individual member’s primary discipline, and marrying them in a sonic-sphere that is equal parts accessible and challenging. From the rhythm patterns and grooves laid by Horace Carney (drummer) and Chris Freeman (bass/vocals) to the intricate chord play of Mike Prescott (guitar/vocals) and alluring melodies of Ade Herbert (vocals/keys), The Hawthornes deliver musical experiences that delight the casual music fan and the audiophile.
