The Huntress and Holder of Hands is a band born out of grief, devotion, and determination. With layered compositions built on driving electric bass and drums, the band’s songwriter, MorganEve Swain (Brown Bird) exposes her heavy post-metal, blues and grunge-rock influences, even as they are tempered by intertwining vocals and the utilization of cello, viola and string bass. The Huntress and Holder of Hands is not for the faint of heart, but for those whose hearts swell for human connection. Fear not, Comrades in Woe.
The band’s first album, Avalon, was self-released in 2017. A new record is in the works for 2023.
