The collective of 'Deft Heart' has shared the stage with artists as varied as 'Walk the Moon' to '30 Seconds to Mars', from 'Switchfoot' to 'The Dropkick Murphys', and many more in between, at hundreds of colleges, clubs and festivals across the Northeast U.S. This is a simple reflection of their ability to reach the commonality that connects all music lovers: 'heart'. Members Brian Westman and Shamus Clancey began playing together in high school, and maintained a musical partnership on and off throughout their careers while playing with other projects. In the last few years, they've polished their vision, and joined together with musicians: Julian Dalton and Andrea Rennie. Strings, percussive acoustic guitar, uncageable bass lines, vast soundscapes, and a stone soul rhythm section; 'Deft Heart' is a band best heard and felt to be understood.
