HAND ON THE HEARTLAND
OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
“Mendon Hale is a simple, straight-shooting guy, here to sing what he knows, sharing his brand of authentic country music, grounded as the boots on his feet."
While most artists spend a lifetime honing their craft and finding their sound, country artist Mendon Hale’s modern country-meets-traditional vibe came so effortlessly and unmistakably - it was simply a case of getting “back to the basics.” The straightforward nature of his sound and song choice might seem baffling to some, given a sorted history in rock music. But for Hale, it’s the first time he’s felt lyrically and sonically on-par. That confidence, something most artists never master, can be heard on the Missouri native’s latest EP release Hand on the Heartland, featuring songs like “I Got the Girl,” “Raising Humans,” and the title track - a collection of tunes encapsulating Hale, both as an artist and person. Produced by longtime friend Marshall Altman (Aaron Watson, Frankie Ballard, Amy Grant), the project boasts his pristine vocals and obvious conviction for the stories he tells - laying claim to the fact that Hale has found his sonic space within country music.
