Well Hung Heart Announce New Video



Taken from their upcoming album ‘Go Forth and Multiply’ (due for release April 2014), rebellious fusion of punk, blues and boisterous female vocals all come together to make the fiercely energetic ‘Big Plans’.

‘The idea of the big plans music video came about via a Facebook post by Greta. She simply posted that it was her dream to ride around the City of Orange (Well Hung Heart's hometown), while driving drunk in a "power wheels"- a tiny electric car made for children. Andrea Lund, member of OC band Harbortown Saints, and the personal assistant to Exene from the legendary California punk band X, saw the post and replied that they had been discussing doing the very same thing. Though Greta, Andrea and Exene had never met, a plan was hatched via email to make a music video out of the whole escapade.’

British born-and-raised guitarist Robin Davey cut his teeth with the Blues elite; jamming onstage with the likes of Buddy Guy, recording with Mick Jagger, and touring the world as a member of British Blues upstarts, The Hoax. Davey quickly secured a place as the youngest ever inductee into the British Blues Hall Of Fame, and has built a reputation as an eclectic and cutting edge musical mind.

Singer Greta Valenti grew up amongst the deep-rooted musical traditions of New Orleans. Having embraced performance and music on stage since the age of four, she emancipated herself at age 17 to tour the USA with a touring performance group, eventually landing in Southern California and become a staple on the local Punk and Indie scenes. Though the two's early years were spent on opposite sides of the Atlantic, they have both found common ground in their passion for the raw honesty of music, delivered in its most unprocessed and unrestricted form. Having met via a music video competition on YouTube, the pair eventually became an item, and then a band. With a dose of Hendrix, and a nod to PJ Harvey, Well Hung Heart is just as comfortable channeling Nirvana as they are Leadbelly or Led Zeppelin.

Well Hung Hearts brand new 2014 album "Go Forth and Multiply" was recorded live, minimal over-dubs, and direct to tape, in a studio close to the bands current home base in Southern California. Sticking to the bands live set-up, which has Davey playing simultaneous Guitar and Bass, Greta Valenti on Vocals and Keys, and Phil Wilson on Drums Wilson, the band used the recording period as an intense, creative and emotional opportunity to capture album that represents them at this moment. Produced by Well Hung Heart, Mixed by Ryan Hafer, and Mastered by Grammy award winning Gavin Lurssen (Queens of the Stone Age, Tom Waits), “Go Forth and Multiply” is set for an April 2014 UK release.
