Neptune's Car - Letters From The Road
Neptune’s Car is a duo made up of New Hampshire guitarist/songwriter Steve Hayes and singer/songwriter Holly Hanson from Massachusetts, together they blend a sweet sound of folk and alt-country rich in story-telling.
They have a shared passion for Lighthouse's and and historical biographies, Neptune’s Car was a clipper ship with a female captain — a true adventure of heroism on the high seas in the 1800's.
Letters from the Road is their second album, a twelve-song album of original songs.
In April 2012, Hanson and Hayes traveled to Hendersonville, Tennessee, to record with Morgan Jahnig (Old Crow Medicine Show). Jahnig plays upright bass on all twelve songs, as well as recorded, mixed, mastered, and co-produced Letters from the Road.

The debut album, Strawberry Moon, reached #4 on the FOLK-DJ chart and included the #1 song “Lighthouse Keeper.” The album was also featured on several “Best of” lists:
Hanson lived the life of a lighthouse keeper as she and her two sons cared for the Rose Island Lighthouse in Newport, Rhode Island. The music video for “Lighthouse Keeper” was shot on location at the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse and Great Island Common in New Castle, New Hampshire. Lighthouse historian, author, preservationist, tour guide, photographer, and president of the American Lighthouse Foundation Jeremy D’Entremont directed, filmed, and edited the music video.
