2014 Headliner: The Head and The Heart


The chart climbing band, The Head and The Heart, known for its hits “Shake” and “Another Story” will be headling the 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll USA Finish Line Festival Concert. Just 4 years ago, the members of The Head and the Heart were playing local bar gigs in Seattle, dreaming of life on the road. Today, the band’s sound reflects the experiences the huge success their second album, Let’s Be Still, has earned them, with appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and dedicated fans packing live shows across the country.
