members for renowned country artists, including Rodney Atkins, Brooks & Dunn, Brett Eldredge,
Faith Hill, Jewel, Rose Falcon, Jaida Dreyer, Mallory Hope and others.
In stark contrast to their role in the country music industry, the progressive pop/rock trio
from Nashville demonstrates their unique chemistry with a collection of smart songs relating
to the nature of desire, the inevitability of change, and the inter connectivity of all things.
They will be joined by keyboardist Chad Kelly and other CT musicians, including banjo player
Dick Neal, Chris and Marc Berardo.
the HiMMs debut performance was at SXSW in March of 2014.
