The Truehearts are a Nashville based Americana/Roots duo comprised of singer/songwriters Debra Buonaccorsi & Steve McWilliams. Their music is characterized by close harmonies and close ties to the roots of American country and folk music; rich with the sound of wood and steel and stories of the everyman. Their songs are melodic, expressive and muscular, ranging from melancholic ballads to boot-stomping rockabilly.
“The Truehearts’ rich harmony blend and honest song-craft evokes the heart and soul of another Nashville duo, Wild Ponies. Purgatory Emporium is filled with people who are finding trouble and strife while imagining a finer place. “The story’s never right or never wrong, it’s just who sings the song,” Debra and Steve sing at album’s end. These stories found the right singers.”
(Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, music journalist, author)
“The music feels good, with guitars that jangle and shimmer, vocals and harmonies that recall Emmylou, Kelly Willis and Tom Petty, Steve Earle and even The Whites, The Jayhawks and Mary Chapin Carpenter, with an occasional sidelong glance at The Beatles”
(Singer-Songwriter, East Nashvillian Magazine)
“I’ve known Steve McWilliams for more years than I care to count. His music has always led from the heart, full of melody and an open spirit. With Debra, he has found a perfect partner, in voice and song and music. The Truehearts make you think and make you happy. What more could you ask for?”
