The Toy Hearts, featuring British bluegrass sisters Hannah and Sophia Johnson, have released a video for the latest single from their Femme Fatale project.
The song is The Captain, written and sung by the lovely Miss Hannah, with able support from the equally lovely (and talented) Miss Sophia. Hannah says that the song is meant to express her refusal to be dominated by those who wield significant power in the music industry, and the hardships faced by The Toy Hearts navigating the British bluegrass scene.
That sounds like a hard message, but the lyrics and the delivery are intentionally demure, providing a nice contrast with some of the gutsier numbers on Femme Fatale.
Rounding out the band is proud pater Stewart Johnson, assisted in the studio by Missy Raines on bass, Jesse Cobb on mandolin, and Ross Holmes on fiddle.
