Description

The Telegraph Folk Album Of 2015. Since signing to Wild Sound Recordings in 2013, Harry Harris has been making a reputation for himself as one of the UK's most formidable and unique singer-songwriters on the circuit. A ruthless guitar player with a voice that goes from explosive to intimate. He writes songs that grab you by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let you go. His influences range from the great American songwriter Warren Zevon to the bar rock vibe of The Hold Steady, to the Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart. Songs About Other People is Harry's second album, and the follow-up to his self-titled debut, recorded when he was only 17 years old and produced by his now label boss, Polly Paulusma. The new album is a more intimate affair, recorded with analogue equipment at Soup Studios in London and featuring some weighty and noteable guests, including sibling folk singer Jack Harris, Treetop Flyers' guitarist Sam Beer and Nizlopi bass player John Parker. Across the record's ten self-penned tracks, Harry takes you from the heroic goal-scoring talents of Ronnie Radford who, having knocked Newcastle United out of the FA Cup, calmly went back to his roofing job the next day.to the love affairs of Hans Christian Anderson - via the cowboy friends of John Wesley Harding - Harry delights in telling us his stories - and interprets them warmly, and quite strongly - always invitingly. Like any good storyteller, Harry is someone that you will want to sit down and listen to. In the past Harry has been championed by the likes of Tom Robinson, The Telegraph and fellow songwriters including Eric Taylor, Anais Mitchell and John Smith. 2014 also saw him hit the festival circuit for the first time, which included a memorable unplugged set to an enraptured crowd at the beautiful Festival No. 6 in North Wales. Harry Harris will be touring extensively in 2015. "Harry's music is thick in the tradition of songwriters before him, from Neil Young to Warren Zevon" - Folkroom Records "[Harry] was a kid with focus and fearless dedication - All these years later, I find the same focus and fearless dedication. This man can write and build songs and stories" - Eric Taylor, Blue Ruby Music USA.
