Humming House Plays At The Camp House Aug. 29

Monday, August 11, 2014

Nashville-based indie-folk band Humming House will be in Chattanooga on Aug. 29 for a performance at the Camp House.   

Humming House is set to release a new live album, Humming House Party, on Aug. 26.  This album is inspired by Beach Boys Party, an album released by the Beach Boys in November of 1965.  The album featured a live party atmosphere replete with laughter and background chatter.  Humming House has taken the Beach Boys' concept and applied it to Humming House Party, recording this album live at the Eastside Manor in Nashville on May 23 with a full crowd in attendance.   

Lead singer Justin Wade Tam said the album was born, "Out of a desire to capture the fun atmosphere and raw energy of our live shows, we decided to invite 50 of our closest friends to experience the Humming House Party. Selecting several previously unreleased original songs, some of our favorite covers, and tunes from our debut release we captured a raucous and intimate live performance we're very excited to share."

Recently, Humming House opened for Emmlyou Harris during an episode of Music City Roots, played Forecastle Festival last month, and played alongside St. Paul and The Broken Bones, the Lone Bellow, Brandi Carlile, and Buddy Miller on the Cayamo Cruise this past January.  NPR's All Things Considered, American Songwriter, The Bluegrass Situation, and Folk Alley have all highlighted Humming House's debut album, citing the group as a band to watch.

We were already swell friends, since he’d watched me grow up at First Presbyterian Church every Sunday with his kids, and he liked some of the stuff I tried to write back then. So ... (click for more)
