The Heartland Roots Band

Together for more than 2 years, THE HEARTLAND ROOTS BAND have spent the majority of that time tirelessly rocking the mainstream circuit of pubs and small festivals, packing in the crowds for whom Country music is either an undiscovered delight, or a guilty pleasure.


The band take influences from traditional and modern country and Americana, and create a sound which is truly unique in the British country music scene.

South African-born lead vocalist Samantha Hobson is joined by songwriter Adrian Causier on singing duties, and the band specialise in big harmonies, anthemic sing-alongs, blistering guitars and rock-tight rhythms.


In November 2020, The Heartland Roots Band released their 6th single on True Authentic Records,  ‘Christmas in Paris.’


For the Leicester-based band of troubadours, ‘Christmas in Paris’ is something of a departure from the country rock anthems we’ve grown to love. It is a tender and emotional number which is sure to get fans in a seasonably sentimental mood in this most difficult of years.


HRB already had 5 records in the country charts in the previous 18 months, and a nomination for UK Country Group of the year in the bag in 2020, and their last single received extensive airplay, particularly in the USA, Australia and Scandinavia as they pushed through one million streams worldwide, a feat unmatched in independent label groups in this genre.


The band’s blissful live shows are truly a thing to behold, and surely will be coming to a venue near you, when the new world order allows. Watch this space!



Heartland Roots Band are supported by the team at Country Music Social Media and “Christmas In Paris” appears on their “Christmas Edition” compilation album.

In 2021, The Heartland Roots Band were named UK Country Group Of The Year at The UK Country Music Awards
