Singer-songwriter Heyward Howkins has been a fixture in the Philly music scene for the past decade, going back through a lineage of bands like Hong Kong Stingray and The Trouble With Sweeney. It seemed like, eventually, he would get around to releasing music of his own, and now that time has come to pass – his majestic solo debut The Hale and the Hearty is coming out on June 26, and it rings out with the warm intimacy of like-minded new folk acts like Bon Iver and Iron & Wine.

The other night, Howkins and two of his bandmates stopped by WXPN to record a Key Studio Session that we’ll bring you next week, but for now, you can get a sneak preview with this performance of “Sugar Sand Stitched Lip.” Download it below, and check back for the entire session this Wednesday, June 6.
