The rough, tight and independent punkrock that has had a stamp printed in our music history since the seventies and the more technical, melodic and modern poppunk. In a combination of the two, forms an male and female fronted band that plays with eccentric humor, a lust for entertainment and the will to be different with a message that comes straight from the heart.
Since the founding in 2011, The Hearted was formed by Kayleigh van der Wijst (guitar/vocals), Harvey Sengers (bass/vocals), Pieter Rohrbach (drums/backing vocals) and Jip Lee (guitar/backing vocals) as they were already determined not to sit around in silence. With a selftitled EP with just three songs in their pocket, they played throughout the Netherlands at Patronaat, Paard van Troje, Dynamo, Bibelot and more.
After that they got the taste for it and departed on a European tour through Belgium, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. After an extensive tour schedule, the lady and three gentlemen were ready for the next step of takeover and so the official music video for "Jack Knife" appeared and they released their debut album "Sorry For Apologizing" shortly after on July 11th, 2014.
Immediately after the release, they accelerated again; the band wins the 1st prize for the "Amplified Talent Show" and they plan a tour abroad for the fourth time. Upon their return, they play their first cameo in the Dutch full length movie "Dreamers" and are chosen as candidate for the Grand Prize of the Netherlands (“Grote Prijs van Nederland”). They also get chosen for the SEN Stage Europe Network exchange program, where they work together with six other bands from all over Europe and as a closure of the week they opened the outdoor festival Westerpop 2014. On the 28th of February, 2015 they released the official music video for 'Make All Mistakes'. Also, they signed with the booking agency 'Pick Up' to handle their management and bookings.
The Hearted invites you to a energetic show where you can let go of everything that you can’t hold on to. A unique act that works hard and isn’t afraid for any challenge.
