Head for the Hills is a modern Bluegrass band who is mostly acoustic but they draw on electric influences. The band members didn't grow up immersed in bluegrass music but came to it later in life, with each other. Head for the Hills fourth record, Blue Ruin, fuses bluegrass, jazz, hip-hop and indie rock into songs inspired by love and misery and comic books. A quintessentially Colorado band, Head for the Hills has been fortunate to work with many of the area greats, starting with Grammy Award winning Dobroist Sally Van Meter, producer of 2007's Robber's Roost and the list goes on. Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon) was quoted saying, Head for the Hills "Cutting edge. Listeners will fully enjoy this unique sound," and City Weekly (Salt Lake City, UT) said "Fiery and precise - what modern bluegrass should be".
