HUMMING HOUSE BRINGS THEIR NASHVILLE ROOTS TO THE METRO AREA
COME BE A COMPANION WITH HUMMING HOUSE ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28
RALSTON, NE (January 23, 2018) – With the release of their 3rd studio album, Companion, Humming House hits the road from Nashville on their Spring Tour. Making a stop through the metro area on Wednesday, March 28 at the Side Room Lounge inside the Ralston Arena. Tickets will be available for the public on Friday, January 26 at 10AM. Tickets can be found online, by phone or in person.
Humming House is Justin Wade Tam, Bobby Chase, Joshua Wolak, and Benjamin Jones. The band formed organically out of jam sessions that Tam held in his living room in East Nashville—evidence that some of the best projects come from spontaneous collaboration and the subsequent seeing it through. Now, three albums and six years later, Humming House continues to embody what is best about the Nashville each transplant chooses to call home.
Humming House does not want to wish away the pain and fear all too real in our lives, but to put those elements in conversation with the elements that sustain us: hope, partnership, even joy. And so, their newest album begins with Tam’s unmistakable voice intoning, “I want to be your companion.” It’s an appropriate beginning for a band who has built itself on complex musicianship and careful collaboration. They know the value of hard work and compromise. Their music is evidence of the thrill of creativity.
Tam notes that the “extremes of the record in emotion are wider on this album. There’s more desperation, but there’s also fun and an upbeat aspect that’s more joyous.” The first half of the album is infused with Indie Rock, especially in songs such as “Can’t Stay Away,” “Takin’ Over,” and “Make it Through.” The influences of squirkey 90s music, a la Cake is very evident in this album and you wont want to miss this performance on Wednesday, March 28.
