Musical styles: Blues, Country, Psychedelic, Punk, Originals
Handmade instrument played: Cigar Box Guitars, Lowebow
Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are the married couple that make up the two-piece that is Hymn for Her, a one-of-a-kind musical act, and family for that matter.
Wayne is the driving rhythmic force behind the band, playing kick drum, and high-hat, while managing a guitar (or banjo, or cigar box guitar), harmonica and vocals. Lucy tears up a cigar box guitar or Lowebow, sometimes a banjo or acoustic guitar, and lends a softer note to their gnarly blues-infused, uptempo psychedelic country with her vocals. Together they travel, coast to American coast, in an Airstream trailer with their daughter, nanny, and dog.
Not only does their family live together in the trailer while on tour, but Lucy and Wayne also use it as a studio, recording in the Airstream while on the road.
Hymn for Her is a back to basics band, relying on a multitude of simple instruments played simultaneously, giving them the sound of something much larger, and frenetic.
Says Lucy in trying to describe the experience for a listener, “I would say if they’re working on the roof, hammering some nails and listening to us, they would fall off the roof,” she said. “It’s fall off the roof music.” -quoted by Sarah Cure of al.com.
