Closing out another transcendent summer of music with BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! 2023 is The Head and the Heart with Izzy Heltai as our opener.
First performing at BCB! in 2012, The Head And The Heart return to our stage as international superstars. Their signature lush harmonies and nuanced acoustic arrangements make them the perfect fit for our closing night. At once expansive and stripped down, opener Izzy Heltai’s music is inviting and intimate, offering listeners a grounding clarity of sound.

*Please Note: For our d/Deaf and hard of hearing communities, we will have an ASL interpreter at the left side of the stage.

ABOUT THE HEAD AND THE HEART

The acclaimed Seattle band The Head And The Heart released their fifth studio album, Every Shade of Blue, headlined sold-out shows all over North America on their Every Shade of Blue 2022 North American Tour, and performed multiple times on national television, everywhere from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to performing at the championship banner drop for The Seattle Sounders.

Every Shade of Blue was produced by GRAMMY-award winning songwriter, producer, and engineer Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Pink, The Shins, Tegan and Sara) except for album tracks “Shadows,” “Don’t Show Your Weakness,” and “Love We Make” which were produced by Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Wet), and “Paradigm,” produced by John Hill and Sammy Witte (Florence + The Machine, Portugal The Man, Cage The Elephant), and mastered by Emily Lazar and Chris Allgood at The Lodge, NY.

Initially self-released in 2011, The Head And The Heart’s self-titled breakout debut produced instant classics including “Rivers and Roads,” “Down in the Valley,” and “Lost in My Mind” (#1 at AAA) and is now certified Gold. 2013’s Let’s Be Still and 2016’s Signs of Light settled into the top 10 of The Billboard 200 album chart, with Signs of Light securing the #1 position on Rock Album Charts, scoring the band’s first #1 at Alternative radio with “All We Ever Knew” and also holding the #1 spot at AAA for nine straight weeks. The band’s fourth full-length album, Living Mirage, was released to critical praise in 2019. “Missed Connection” reached the #1 position on the Alternative Chart as well as the Mediabase and BDS alternative charts, after having already achieved #1 on the AAA chart. The album’s breakout track, “Honeybee,” became a fan favorite with 153M+ total global streams and 1M+ global weekly streams. The Head and the Heart have appeared in Cameron Crowe’s Roadies, and their music has been featured in countless other commercials, films and TV, among them CoronaSilver Linings Playbook and more. The band is a touring powerhouse, having landed prime-time mainstage slots at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. The Head and the Heart has performed 18 times on national television, including appearances on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Austin City Limits, CBS Saturday Morning and more. Every Shade of Blue is the band’s fifth studio album.

ABOUT IZZY HELTAI

Izzy Heltai creates moments you could hum to yourself in a moment of introspection or scream off the top of a parking garage at 2am – either would feel like a catharsis. His music is as nimble as it is grounded – walking the seam between confessional lo-fi musings and raucous basement rock. Sonically unpretentious and lyrically relatable, Izzy invites you into his world like a conversation with a best friend over a cigarette on the back porch – the moment of clarity you didn’t know you needed.
