HeartStrings has been playing together for over four years and not only do we enjoy playing music but it seems others enjoy listening as well. We are all members of the SDA church in Sonora, CA and regularly participate in the music worship program. After playing individually in various groups, we came together and found that we all enjoyed the same type and style of music - a unique sound developed from the combination of musical instruments, the choice of older hymns, unique musical arrangements and all fully orchestrated.
- Bill Hale - Upright Bass
- Jeff Nash - Acoustic/Classical Guitar
- Jim Nord - Hammered Dulcimer
Here's the exciting part! We have worked this pasted year on two very ambitious projects: "Almost Home" and "Glad Tidings" our first CD's.
Almost Home was released summer of 2009 and picked up by Chapel Records (which was very exciting in itself). If you like traditional hymns with fresh new arrangements you can buy 'Almost Home' in our store section. This is our first CD; Almost Home. A year in the making and worth every minute. After playing for church and giving programs in the area we took our favorite hymns and inspirational songs and began the process of recording. We chose to orchestrate most of the songs because the moving strings of the orchestra really complimented our sound. You're going to love the fresh new arrangements and the relaxing traditional melody blended together for an inspirational experience.
Glad Tidings a collection of wonderful Christmas hymns was released December 1st, 2011. With the Christmas season soon approaching the CD sold like wildfire and was found wrapped under many a Christmas tree. This is our second CD call Glad Tidings. Our first CD was so successful there was a calling for Christmas carols in our style with orchestration and we thought this most fitting. The problem was it was already August and that left 12 weeks to arrange and record the songs before going to press. We rolled up our sleeve asked for the Lord's blessings and off to work we went. What an experience! The hard work paid off as we received the finished product December 1st and it soon was in the hands of all those who wanted Christmas gifts. We hope you enjoy the recordings and are richly blessed by the good news from which these carols proclaim.
Below are three songs that Jeff has worked hard to put together. Feel free to use the controls to have a listen.
