Hernan Savastano

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Hernan Savastano began writing folk pop songs on acoustic guitar in 2008 and soon formed a band called the Sweetheart Army, which performed for several years in Seattle (High Dive, Tractor Tavern, Sunset Tavern, the Mix) to positive local reviews (The Stranger, Seattle Weekly). After taking a musical hiatus, he was inspired through his work with plant medicines and by medicine songs from South America to take up his guitar again. His new songs are intended to evoke the healing and wisdom of Mother Nature and the sacred elements.
