Follow Your Heart Now Available

Follow Your Heart is now available as an LP, CD or digital download.

"This new album was recorded in a 1903 Sacramento Church and it sounds amazing."
-Marcus Crowder, Sacramento Bee

"Follow Your Heart, the first vinyl release from Ross Hammond is a shimmering beauty."
-Jason Kennedy, The Ear Magazine (UK)

"..the music brings to mind long, dusty drives in rural America. It’s contemplative—mournful, even. The record is a response to his daughter asking him if they would continue to be best friends after they died, so maybe that’s why the album sinks right into your gut. It’s not exactly sad, but it’ll pull you out of your world for a while."
-Amy Bee, Sacramento News and Review

"The music here does have a rich, swampy, sly, earthy, eerie sort of vibe. I haven’t heard a solo acoustic guitar record nearly as fine as this in a long time."
-Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery (NYC)

"In an easygoing, ‘storytelling’ style that more often than not resembles Appalachian folk music Follow Your Heart is really less about Hammond’s ample guitar chops and more about the mental images and memories it might conjure up."
-S. Victor Aaron, Something Else Reviews

"In truth there isn’t weak tune on this collection, just some great playing from the current standard bearer for a very rare breed."
-Jason Kennedy, The Ear Magazine (UK)
