The Hedgerow Folk was formed out of Auburn, AL in 2012 when Jon Myles and Amanda Hammett began leading worship together in their local church. Joined by Bryant Hains, the three began working and writing together, eventually solidifying their group under the name The Hedgerow Folk (taken from a line of a C.S. Lewis poem).
In 2014, they released their first album, Come Close. The heart of this album was to lead people into a time of abiding with the Father, through songs that centered around quiet reflection and intimacy with Christ. Soon after the release of Come Close, the Lord began to birth new music in their hearts, compelling them to write songs of healing for the broken and hurting, and songs of certainty for those who feel lost. These ten new songs formed their second album, Compass, which was released in April 2017. The heart of this album proclaims to God that though we may not understand Him, we trust Him.
A few months after the release of Compass, the band had the opportunity to begin working with Old Bear Records, a music label and studio in Batavia, NY. Together they are releasing a new single, God Who Sees Me, in September 2018. As believers, there are times in life when our faith and our circumstances can feel at odds with one another. Their newest song is one of hope; an encouragement to believe that we are seen and loved by the God of the universe regardless of what our feelings might tell us.
We see ourselves as more of a ministry than a band in the conventional sense and our desire, above all else, is to be useful in connecting people with the Father. It is our hope to create art that leads people to slow down, reflect, and hear God's voice in their lives. Our heart's desire is to bring glory to our Father through the music, gifts, and abilities He has given us.
