Heard : Instincts
Free range originals, rich vocal harmonies, no artificial flavors... not to mention fun! Lord knows what's in it, but it sure is tasty! How does a veteran singer/songwriter with a great voice and hot-rod guitar chops form a band? Most would find some passable side players and be the shining star front-man, but if you were Mark Utting, a rocker from Seattle, that just wouldn't be good enough. You'd hunt for singers, writers, and players whose skills rival your own. And if you teamed up with Josh Bogle, a versatile jazz-head from Oregon, pulled in Daniel Reed, a sharp gospel-folkie from California, and then were lucky enough to snag celtic torch chanteuse MB Whitaker from Idaho, you'd end up with The Heard. Four singer/songwriters dedicated to backing each others' diverse visions; always surprising, always supremely musical, always laid-back fun and dead-earnest seriousness tied inextricably together. Ingredients: harmonies, songwriting, rocking, grinding, dreaming, no GMO's.
