The Hurts formed from a previously undiscovered species of dinosaur egg now so-called Hurtsasaurus. Miraculously preserved, the Hurts, comprising of Will Thompson (percussion), Mara Smith (vox, guitar, keys, bass), Jill Palumbo (vox, bass, guitar) and Rebekah Holbrook (vox, key, harmonica, guitar), hatched after an incubation of two years and carefully sporadic practice.

Despite their Jurassic origins, The Hurts bring you a dose of very serious irreverence that is meant purely for creative release. A mix of songwriting styles inform the sounds, ranging from future western murder ballads to sensitive introspective songs leaning on a 90s indies slant with delicious three part vocal harmonies.

 

Wes Charlton, a singer/songwriter from Virginia, integrates his Americana roots with modern themes to create a poetic and at times haunting vision of relationships, the struggle to find yourself, and the pursuit of the “Promised Land”.  Opening for artists like Tim Easton, Stephen Bruton, Michelle Shocked, Pat McGee Band, and Virginia Coalition, Wes plays to enthusiastic audiences everywhere. With proficiency on a variety of instruments, Wes blends his musicianship with sophisticated lyrics to paint a profound portrait of growing up in rural America, while maintaining a connection to contemporary youth through driving rhythms, electric guitar and the exploration of found-sounds.
