"A soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland... a collection of road-dog-roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he’s left behind in the rear-view mirror.” Rolling Stone
“I recently played some shows with Szlachetka, and I was blown away not only by him as a singer and performer, but also as a unique and fresh songwriting voice” - Brandy Clark
A mix of modern Americana, 1970s California rock, and singer/songwriter sentiments, Heart of My Hometown —the second record from Szlachetka —is a classic album for the contemporary world. Szlachetka(pronounced SLA-HET-KA)has been named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know,” but he’s no newcomer. With multiple albums and more than a thousand shows under his belt, Szlachetka has shared the stage with Brandy Clark, the Byrds' Chris Hillman, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell. Now based in Nashville, after 16 years in Southern California, Szlachetka grew up in New England and began his career as the frontman for the acclaimed roots-rock band, The Northstar Session. With The Northstar Session, he recorded five albums and appeared in the second season of TV’s “Parenthood”. After nearly a decade of touring, he left the band and struck out on his own, releasing his first solo album in 2014, Waits For A Storm To Find. Szlachetka’s sophomore album, Heart Of My Hometown is set to release February 16.
