Heartsome In The Spotlight

Last Updated: 19th December 2023

Whether you’re looking for chilled background music or a perfect party-into-the-night vibe, Heartsome have got you covered! With a stunning combination of vocals and guitar, and a repertoire bursting with hits from across the decades, this duo guarantee an expert performance and unforgettable experience for you and your guests. We wanted to shine the spotlight on this sublime duo, to get to know them a bit better! Over to you guys!


Who are Heartsome?

“One of the most talented and in-demand duos playing at weddings, private events and bars across the UK, Heartsome perform a variety of modern and classic feel-good hits for both laid back vibes and upbeat party atmospheres”


Give us a wow fact about your act!

“Between us, we have toured around Europe, showcased at venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and have performed at Glastonbury Festival several times!”


What inspired you both to become musicians?

“Coming from musical backgrounds, it was always certain that they we would be musicians. We both work with young people too, helping to inspire the next generation to enjoy and value the benefits that music can bring to life!”


Which song is your favourite to perform?

“Straight in there with one of the hardest questions to ask! We both have a big love for soul, jazz and RnB – if we get to play something by Stevie Wonder in a set, that’s always a win. There’s a great song by the Coasters that we like to play called ‘Down In Mexico’. We sometimes get to play it at more low-key events and it always goes down well!”


 

Out of the songs you’ve been asked to learn, which is your favourite?

“We’ve loved learning all sorts of songs for ceremonies, first dances, you name it! For seasonal events we often get asked for Christmas songs. They’re great for creating interesting arrangements due to most of them having some pretty interesting, jazz harmony. We’ve done a groovy Bossa version of All I Want For Christmas before which was a vibe. There was a cool track called ‘Ferris Wheel’ by Sylvan Esso that we were asked to learn for a wedding ceremony at a beautiful venue in Suffolk. It’s always great to get requests, especially when it’s of some great music we haven’t heard before!”


One final song question, which is the song you can always rely on to fill the dance floor?

“That’s a pretty tricky question because every crowd can be different! There are always standard tracks, but of late, throwing I’ll Be There For You (Friends theme) and Hey Ya (Outkast) along with your classics like Don’t Stop Me Now (Queen) tends to get people up dancing and singing along… but then again, it might be the sort of crowd that want to party to ABBA, Dolly Parton and Tina Turner! We always try and have a handful of ‘power’ songs from different genres that suit particular groups of people so that we can get the party going!”


 

Do you get on with each other all of the time?

“We’re actually a married couple ourselves… so yes! We love creating a feel-good musical vibe for other couples’ special days!”


Who has the most annoying habit (and what is it)?

“Might be better to not get into that right now…”


What’s the best thing about being musicians?

“Getting to play music together! We both play other instruments – Han plays bass and Stu plays drums, bass, trombone, keys (you might also find him depping with other bands!). Playing music is a great way to meet new people and create long-lasting, great memories.”


… and what’s the worst?

“The packing down, and long late night drives home, of course… a labour of love!”


 

What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to you at a wedding/event?

“It might be best not to repeat some of the situations we’ve found ourselves in. There can often be that character who’s had one too many shandies and has decided it might be better if they entertain the guests instead of us… but hey, it’s all part of the fun… isn’t it?”


Most memorable moment?

“Too many to mention! There are so many great people at the places we play, and we love meeting people! There was once a friends themed wedding though and they did Monica and Ross’s ‘the routine’ for their first dance… that was unique!”


If you weren’t musicians, what would you be doing?

“We both work with young people too, doing our best to inspire the next generation of musicians. It’s such a rewarding vocation, we couldn’t imagine ourselves doing anything that didn’t involve music in some way!”
