  • The Vocal Folk Sound

    Recorded in the chapel of St. John's Anglican Church, Hearth and Hollow Folk Voices captures a real and intimate vocal session synonymous with indie folk. Created with Hunter Rogerson, this VST focuses on the texture and tonality of how real people sound — highlighting the warmth and unique character each singer’s voice has to offer. Hunter gathered 2 of his closest friends to produce a library that mirrors the natural textures and tonalities of indie folk music.

    Four arrangeable vocal signals with 11 articulations and 8 mixes all curated to fit comfortably in your arrangements. Blend this library with Hearth and Hollow Plucked Folk Ensemble for an authentic acoustic sound.
