The Hanging Hearts are a free jazz trio with strong melodic roots that hang heavily on improvisation. They originally formed in 2013 after saxophonist Chris Wells collaborated with his friends Devin Drobka on keyboards and Cole DeGenova on the drums. And while their sound is firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, they cross between rock, pop, and experimental sounds all the time, making their shows feel fresh and new. All three musicians are classically trained, and their skills really shine when they play together.
