New Album Update
More updates on Hem's upcoming album are on the untitled new album page, including some new possible songs for the album. Since the last All About Hem news update Hem has posted a bunch on Twitter (which is where Dan mentioned these new songs), so go visit if you haven't already.
Discography Update
A "new" compilation CD has been added to the discography page. It is Live From Studio 2A, Vol. VI, a collection of live studio tracks from KXCI in Tucson, Arizona that includes Hem performing "Hollow" in 2005.

Hem on Twitter
Tweet with all the cool kids and follow Hem on Twitter. There's not much there yet, and not even one Tweet pun about "The Cuckoo" or "Bird Song," but more updates should be on the way. If not, keep tweeting at Hem to get them to post their every last thought that's 140 characters or less. They'd *love* that. Tell them All About Hem sent you if you want to shift the blame.

"Half Acre" Liberty Mutual Ad
Your eyes and ears do not deceive you: the first Liberty Mutual commercial featuring Hem's song Half Acre is back on TV! Catch it all over the place (in the US, at least) for the next few weeks. You can also see it online here at Liberty Mutual's website.
Anne Heaton's "Blazing Red"
What could the latest album from Anne Heaton have to do with Hem? It was produced by Hem's own Gary Maurer! Visit Anne's website to hear the songs and buy the album. (I know, I know, you want to buy a new album from Hem, but that will come soon enough. I hope. Stay tuned!)

Valentine's Day
Your Valentine's Day would be better with music, don't you think? Listen to Hem's cover of Bruce Springsteen's song "Valentine's Day," which if you don't already have (why don't you already have it?!) you can download right now, like at Amazon or eMusic. Live versions are also available for (free) download at archive.org, where Hem kindly lets fans share concert recordings. You can find "Valentine's Day" as part of these shows: Bracknell, 27 Feb 2022, Dublin, 3 Mar 2022, and Brooklyn, 16 Apr 2022. Also listen to a Valentine's compilation called Sweet Nothings that includes Hem's song "The Present." You can download it for free here.

All About Me
Today is All About Hem's 5th birthday. Thanks to everyone for visiting over the years and especially to everyone who has contributed news tips and photos to help grow the site and make it fun for me to run. Thanks also to Nettwerk for their continued kindness and support and to Geof for being a super web host. The biggest thanks, of course, go to Dan, Gary, Sally, Steve, and the rest of Hem for their marvelous music that makes the world a better place and for their personal generosity and support to me and this site that continues to be a blessing.
Discography Updates
Over the past few months I've added a number of new entries on the discography page that I haven't specifically mentioned in the news because they were all older compilations or promotional releases. For the truly devoted, these are the newest discography additions: Not California CD single, RabbitSongs.com Downloads, Merry Happy Christmas compilation, The Bridge compilation, For The Kids 3 Promotional CD, and Tracks Magazine compilation.
