The Lonely Hearts are an Americana/rock band from Nashville, Tennessee.


The Lonely Hearts were formed in 2003 in Nashville, TN by brothers Will and Josiah Holland. They have released one full length album, Paper Tapes.

They released Paper Tapes through Tooth & Nail on March 7, 2006,[1] but are currently independent. Recently they have recorded demos with Ethan Luck for a new album at Rebel Waltz Recording Co. in Franklin and East Nashville, Tennessee.
