“Finally, like many Tom Petty albums, this one is perfect for a night drive, particularly if you have to be driving along a coast. It is a soundtrack for freedom, movement, and hope, and it is perfect for opening the windows and singing as loudly as you can.” - Glide Magazine

ZERO GRAVITY video - unlisted on YouTube

Positive energy runs throughout the album over a twangy and spacey’s a sound & philosophy that we could all use after the last couple of years” - Glide Magazine

“Dynamite duo who aim to pull up their roots, stick by their guns and bring back the sounds of the Laurel Canyon in the 1960’s, the British invaders of the ‘70’s and the cosmic cowboys still twirling thru time and space” - Pop Matters

The HawtThorns materialized in 2019 in Los Angeles and have released 2 full length studio recordings (40 Below Records & Mule Kick Records) 

After the release the sophomore record Tarot Cards & Shooting Stars in 2022, we cosmically beamed into the Nashville orbit of musicians where we were invited to make a record with members of the Wood Brothers at the Wood's studio. We found ourselves surrounded by stars in an artistic universe that includes producer Ted Pecchio, 

photographer Alysse Gafkjen, videographer Anana Kay, stylist Cybelle Elena and an asterism of talented musicians who left us floating in ZERO GRAVITY. 

We have watched our social media and Spotify engagement go from nebula to supernova with exploding fan engagement.  Our stellar evolution continued with sold out shows in markets from North Carolina to California.

The band will showcase songs from ZERO GRAVITY at this year's Americanafest and embark on a tour this fall opening shows for Toad the Wet Sprocket as well as doing headlining club dates during the mission. Count down begins now...prepare for take off
