Heat Speak is an indie band led by singer-songwriter multi-instrumentalist Dario Ré. His impassioned poetics sung in English and French are supported by dynamic musicianship and intricate arrangements to create a unique blend of indie folk, chamber pop and world fusion.
The project began as a trio in 2014 in Spokane, Washington. The group formally banded with a full line-up following their 2017 album, Aspen Artichoke (released under the eponymous band name Dario Ré). At the end of 2018, the group rebranded as Heat Speak in preparation for their 2020 album release, To Love Wind.
In 2019, Heat Speak played approximately 60 live shows in the Pacific Northwest and were nominated for a Bartlett Award as Best Local Folk Band/Artist.
They have an array of original merchandise for sale through their website including woodcut prints, candles, CD’s, magnets, stickers and more.
