Hembree’s path to success is proving to be as nostalgia-inducing as it is powerful: labor away at home and in fly-by-night studios creating music you love; send your song to the local DJ (yes, on the actual radio) and have him love it so much he plays it immediately; tour and tour and tour and tour and tour; and begin to hear that song on radio stations across America, acting as early beacons to the larger world taking notice.
Hembree, named “Best Artist We Saw at SXSW in 2018” by Rolling Stone and one of NPR’s 2018 Spotlight Artists, released their debut EP “Had It All” (Ribbon Music / Domino Records) in November 2017. Its lead single “Holy Water” was featured in an Apple commercial, debuted on the Billboard Alt Radio chart, and garnered millions of streams.
