Josh and Heather
Josh has made his living as a much revered, and referred, Physical Therapist in Arlington. He and Heather met playing in the church worship band.
Soon, they created Tuesday music night, collaborating on songs. Heather would write lyrics and clumsily strum them on guitar until Josh figured out what she wanted and suddenly, they were making music of their own, together.
They fell in love, and 6 years later married on a Tuesday night.
In 2017, Heather was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent bilateral mastectomies and 6 weeks later, full hysterectomy. This, along with other issues such as Empty Nest, (daughter left for college), and the subsequent pandemic, made them reconsider the trajectory of their lives. They began to take the opportunity Social Media presented and started playing their songs on Instagram. That led to a few places, with outdoor spaces, hiring them to start playing gigs, something Heather had wanted for years. In her mind, there was no time to waste. It was time to fulfil the purpose she felt she had been gifted to do with him as a duo.
They have been creating music of their own, for 17 years, and have been blessed to open for amazing artists such as Hayes Carl, Micky and The Motorcars, and record with artists like Jomo Edwards of the Possum Posse, Rachel Stacy, Milo Deering, Josh Rodgers, and Aden Bubeck.
They attend the annual LAS- Life's a Song songwriters weekend in Port Aransas, hosted by friends Terri Hendrix and the incomparable Lloyd Maines , and have met many amazing, and talented people that have become forever music friends.
Hankins released their first album in 2016, titled, Well and Truly Blessed. The project was a result of many supportive friends that encouraged them to record, and who donated half of the funds!
They released 4 singles in 2022 which can be heard, along with the first album, on all streaming platforms.
HANKINS recorded a second album to be released in early 2024!
