The Hedgerow Folk was formed out of Auburn, AL in 2012 when Jon Myles and Amanda Hammett began leading worship together in their local church. Joined by Bryant Hains, the three began working and writing together, eventually solidifying their group under the name The Hedgerow Folk (taken from a line of a C.S. Lewis poem).
In 2014, they released their first album, Come Close. The heart of this album was to lead people into a time of abiding with the Father, through songs centered around quiet reflection and intimacy with Christ. In April 2017, the band released their second album, a ten song project titled Compass. The heart of this record proclaimed to God that though we may not understand Him, we trust Him. A few months after the release of Compass, the band worked with Old Bear Records in Batavia, NY to create God Who Sees Me, a single released in September 2018. As believers, there are times in life when our faith and our circumstances feel at odds. This song is one of hope; an encouragement to believe that we are seen and loved by the God of the universe regardless of what our feelings might tell us.
Jon, Bryant and Amanda are excited to be back in the studio working on two new singles as part of a five song EP to be released in the summer of 2020.ed to be back in the studio working on two new singles and a five song EP to be released in the summer of 2020.
