Alternative Rock Artist Harris Face Performs Live September 8th at the DC Electric Maid
Los Angeles, California – Harris Face will be featured on the upcoming Compilation, “Indie Anthems”. He is donating a track called, “Missed Connections”, a blues/folk song. The compilation, which is produced by the WiFiPR Group to showcase new artists they have recently signed to their client roster, will come out as digital release only and be distributed at upcoming music festivals and industry events including CMJ Music Marathon in New York City in October.
Harris Face is a folk-rock-blues artist from Washington, DC. Percussive guitar, harmonica, and emotive rock dominate his music, drawing comparisons with an acoustic Springsteen, Dylan, and Cat Stevens, but with his own modern day interpretations. Sprinkling light banter between his folk ramblings and blues confessionals, Harris Face has a voice that is at times nostalgic and hopeful, at times serious and ironic, but always full of the dreams that life is worth living, regardless of it’s difficulties.
Emerging from a bustling DC singer-songwriter scene, he has been featured at the Capital City Showcase, Wonderland Ballroom, and Rock & Roll Hotel. Harris has toured the East coast and Midwest with Adrian Krygowski and Amber Dutton, and shared the stage with semi-national headliners, including Brothers Lazaroff and The Vespers.
In a letter to friends and fans, Harris Face has described his extended EP, ‘How The Story Goes’, as “a selection of old and new songs meant to tell a story of personal revelations.” Miguel Urbiztondo at Sound of Music Studios in Richmond, VA produced Face’s new EP, which was recently released June 7, 2012. Miguel has worked with Hotel Lights, David Immergluck of Counting Crows, and David Lowry. In a recent interview, Face commented that he is inspired to write songs about life struggles, facades, personal transcendence, and unrequited love. Face says, “The song I am proudest of writing is “Cotton Clouds and Gold, which is track 7 on ‘How the Story Goes.”
Harris moved to DC from New York in 2010. Back then he was a bright-eyed idealist ready for a career in politics, but became quickly disillusioned with that world, and turned back to music, something that has remained incorruptible throughout his life.
Here is what the press has said about Harris Face, and his music:
“If you haven’t heard him before, think folk and acoustic rock rolled up and double-dipped in Americana (with sprinkles on top).”–Micah Battino – The Lifetrack
“Reminiscent of a fresh-faced, wide-eyed Dylan on his first ramble through Greenwich Village, Harris has a voice and songwriting style that is both humorous and insightful. He draws the audience in with a smile, he tells stories about chance encounters and encounters with chance, he talks of escalators… And he will make you laugh, while openly admitting his fears.”—Jonny Grave, Gunslingers and Songwriters
Please make sure to see him live at one of his upcoming shows.
