The Heartless

More from this show

The Heartless – a band originally formed in Tempe in 2004 – brought their songs “Unbelievable” and “Uno Mas” to Arizona PBS’ studios.

All four members grew up in the Phoenix area and were all involved in the local punk rock scene in the early 2000s. “I was playing in a band,” said singer/guitarist Chris Wagner, “Ryan was playing in another band, Johnny was playing in another band, and we all just kind of met each other through playing shows.”

When the other bands went their own ways, Chris and guitarist Ryan Mott knew that they wanted to be in a band together.

“These guys are some of my closest friends,” Mott said. “Playing music with them in a live setting just gets me really excited and fired up – it’s just a joy.”

“It’s very comfortable to play with these guys,” agreed guitarist Jeff Tretta. “You just kind of let loose when you get on stage.”
