The Laughing Hearts

Chicago, IL

Tyler Stock, Ari Shellist, and Tom Hipchen have been writing music and performing together for 8+ years. The trio met in a college
jazz ensemble while attending University of Missouri and quickly began playing in bands together. The trio formed The Laughing Hearts in 2017 after returning to their hometown of Chicago

The Laughing Heartsmusic channels the energy of classic rock nroll and the songwriting sensibilities of modern pop. Coming from a city known for raucous rock shows from the likes of Twin Peaks, Post Animal, or Dehd the trio complements insightful songs with a dynamic sound and fiery live performances.

The band prolifically plays in Chicago, most recently headlining Hideout Inn and performing at Schubas for a special concert series cohosted by Audiotree and These Days Magazine. The groups music is produced by member Ari Shellist and the band recorded Fast & Free at Palisade Studios (formerly Decade Studios) with engineer Alex Burns (Beyoncé, Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, and many more). This will be the bands second EP after a series of singles and their selftitled EP released in December 2017
