We are super excited to have Brian Swislow and Richard Love of ‘Object Heavy’ as our guests on No Simple Road this week. Object Heavy is Northern California’s hardest hitting Soul sensation. While based in Arcata, this cast of musical characters has made waves up and down the North Coast of California, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the United States. Object Heavy has also been voted best band in Humboldt, three out of the last 5 years, including 2022. Now Object Heavy has hit the studio and cooked up a new album, ‘LOVE AND GRAVITY’, produced by Kelly Finnigan (Monophonics), showing off their progressive yet soulful sound.
We get right to it in this conversation talking about creating the new album ‘Love and Gravity’ with Kelly Finnegan of the Monophonics producing for them, how Object Heavy started as a house band way back when in 2013, what made Mike pull up stakes in Texas and move himself up to Northern California to follow his dreams, how he discovered his vocal talents from singing in church back in the day, how a chance meeting and a ride changed all of their lives for the better forever, how grit, persistence, and patience pay off, what the Arcata and Humbolt music scene is like, Swiz’s love of The Grateful Dead, and a whole lot more!
For all thing Object Heavy including tour info, merch, and more head over to: www.objectheavymusic.com
