(PR) Hailing from Brooklyn, NY but with songs imbued with imagery of traveling long, country roads, through small towns and open prairies. Hem's third studio album Funnel Cloud waltzes over alt-country and folk terrain with their nod to traditional folk storytelling and rootsy mixture of steel pedal, piano, mandolin and stand up bass (along the lines of Lucinda Williams, Cowboy Junkies and Patti Griffin).
Past tours with Elvis Costello, Beth Orton and Wilco have won the band an avid international audience and the band will be touring the US through Sept/Oct, with initial West Coast show info below and national tourdates soon to be announced.
