Solar Hearts is the brainchild of songwriter and vocalist Christopher Hewat, who’s been performing original feel-good-folk-pop from early days in New England to subsequent years spanning both coasts. Landing most recently in Asheville, NC, he’s been playing live shows from New York to L.A., to wide swaths of NC and VA. 

Christopher continues to pull from his roots of being steeped in classic rock, folk, and Mowtown soul, with what emerges as unique and familiar; garnering comparisons to John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Jason Mraz. Over the years he’s performed supporting artists including: The Connells, Juliana Hatfield, 4NonBlondes, and Tim Reynolds’ TR3. 

He continues to perform solo and full band shows. With song placements in film and tv; including guest vocals on Together We Will Run, by Somer,  featured on Love Is Blind (Netflix), and Amber Brown (AppleTV). 

The EP, 'Strange The Way We Love', marks the emergence of Solar Hearts: an original blend of indie folk; flavored with americana, vintage soul, and classic rock unplugged. Organic Soul Pop. 
Along with an outstanding array of players, producer, Scott Kinnebrew (Sounding Arrow, Truth&Salvage Co.),  and engineer Stewart Myers (Jason Mraz, Gomez) helped craft the 'Strange The Way We Love'  EP into existence, followed by mastering engineer Gary Lurssen's  finishing touches (T-Bone Burnett). An uplifting call to LOVE and LIFE, 'Strange The Way We Love' is now available through iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby:  DISCS AND DOWNLOADS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE HERE!
