Bryan Elijah Smith & The Wild Hearts released ‘These American Hearts’ at The State Theatre in Culpeper, Virginia on August 30th, 2014. This marks Smith’s 8th full length studio effort & the 4th album that features The Wild Hearts. ‘These American Hearts’, which was recently voted #50 on WNRN‘s ‘100 Top Albums of 2014’, was written over a year & a half in which Smith narrowed it down to 11 tracks from around a 100 that were written. The self-portrait story that unfolds digs deep revealing all the joys, sorrows, demons, love & heartache that life on the road manifests. The outcome is a batch of 11 of the most honest songs Smith has written to date. Produced by Bryan Elijah Smith over the course of a year & mastered by Brian Lucey (Ray LaMontagne, The Black Keys); it sonically reaches new heights not previously heard in Smith & The Wild Heart’s catalog but has the same raw, backcountry energy that is certain to draw you into an album that will not only capture your ears but ultimately steal your heart.
