Bio

They don't have a CD. They've been a band for only a few short months. They are four young college undergraduates who, despite their passion for music, are studying History, Cognitive Science, Engineering, and Dance. They are not yet known far away from UCLA.

They don't have a CD. They've been a band for only a few short months. They are four young college undergraduates who, despite their passion for music, are studying History, Cognitive Science, Engineering, and Dance. They are not yet known far away from UCLA. Perhaps the best way to describe them? “The best band you’ve not yet heard of, but should someday.”

Meanwhile, THE STREET HEARTS have already been discovered by LA-based luminaries and won more awards in their few short months than most bands win in a lifetime. One critic calls them, "multi-dimensional alt-folkers.” In other words easy to listen to, and even easier to love.  Paula Abdul joined a panel of celebrity judges who selected The Street Hearts as BEST BAND at UCLA's 2013 Spring Sing, where they performed before 8,000 fans.  These same 8,000 fans voted The Street Hearts as winners of the prestigious Bruin Audience Choice Award. Around the same time, The Street Hearts also won UCLA's JazzReggae 2013 Battle of the Bands and opened LA's JazzReggae Festival for Ziggy Marley, Common, and Santigold, despite their music being anything but jazz or reggae.  They’ve since performed at the UCLA’s presidential “palace,” have a super duper California wedding gig lined up for October, yet remain evermore committed to performing on sunny Los Angeles streets.

Club Passim is proud to sponsor The Street Hearts' first gig outside Los Angeles. (Founding member and bass player/vocalist Nicholai Hansen, is from Brookline, so why not?)  The band's remaining members all hail from bearish California: guitarist and lead singer Andrew Giurgius, keyboardist and vocalist Nick Valentini, and banjoist and vocalist, Sarah Summers.

Take a chance on a new sound by a new band you've never heard before, first by previewing them on YouTube (search “The Street Hearts UCLA”), and then, as The Street Hearts themselves say, "Be there, or be not there."
