Warmth in Here
Half Looking is a delicious mix of folk, pop, rock, and blues. With incredible songwriting and soaring harmonies, this band is a delight for the ears. Half Looking has been on the Midwestern scene for five years, playing clubs and festivals, including the 2002 National Women's Music Festival, the 2001 Michigan Women's Music Festival, the 2000 Albuquerque Wimminfest, and the 2000 Missoula Womensfest. Half Looking has also shared the stage with Melissa Ferrick, Dar Williams, Indigo Girls, and Laura Love. Half Looking rolls five years of roadwear into a warm and personal new album. The Warmth in Here (2002) offers soothing, introspective songs dashed with fresh pop hooks and upbeat rhythms. This evocative project delves into the realms of alternative folk, bluegrass and celtic rhythms, featuring the talents of new band member and keyboardist Mike Lynch (Larry McCray Band) and upright bassist Dominic Suchyta (Steppin' In It). Half Looking's first and second CDs, Tip of My Tongue and Delicious Humming, together sold over 3500 CDs locally and nationally, with the assistance of endless touring and independent distribution with Goldenrod Music. Half Looking is Hez Naylor (acoustic guitar, mandolin, lead vocals, primary songwriter), Holly Miller (electric and acoustic guitar), Murray Stewart-Jones (drums, djembe, mandolin, backing vocals), and Mike Lynch (accordian, piano, Hammond B-3).
