Album Notes
Harriet’s songs will touch you, make you laugh, and maybe even make you cry. They will definitely lift you up and make your spirit fly. Some are soft and tender, and inspiring; some are funny. All are full of insight into what matters most. Harriet’s soaring vocals and heartfelt delivery will take you to new places in your heart….or help you revisit some of your favorite memories, because she’s been there too.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Harriet grew up near Seattle, Washington. She started writing songs around the age of seven. Where other children might have written in their diaries, Harriet wrote songs about the rites of passage through childhood. College and marriage took her away to California, Oregon, and Colorado. And 15 years later, she finally made her way back to the Olympic Peninsula, just to the west of her old home in Seattle. For 14 years, she was a regular at the highly popular Seabold Second Saturday open mic, along with a few others open mics on the west edge of Puget Sound.

Much of that time she spent working with her husband as co-owners of Skunk Bay Mushroom Farm.
But after 10 years… they shut down the farm and moved on to Texas, where Harriet was finally able to start making plans for her first CD.
Excellently produced by Mike Dunbar, in Nashville, Teach Me to Fly is surely the first of several CDs to come from Harriet.

Highlights include 2002 Just Plain Folks Best Lyric Nominee Teach Me To Fly, 2004 Just Plain Folks Best Lyric Nominee I Won’t Be Here Long, both anthems for the dreamers in all of us… and of course the totally irreverent send-up to “Mr. Ego Himself” Last Man On Earth.

Emily Sanders

expertly produced, exquisite melodies, sweet voice
Harriet Ames' music touches our hearts with amazingly universal themes presented in a very unique way. Her lilting voice and expertly produced arrangements by Nashville's treasure, Mike Dunbar, make this CD truly exceptional! All of the songs have strong commercial appeal, but I particularly enjoyed "And the Sailor Needs the Sea", which Ames co-wrote with Bobbie Gallup and Corky Bernard.

Powerful Pure Vocals...and Songs That Touch
Harriet Ames has a pure and powerful voice that is so easy to listen to. My favorite song on this long awaited CD is
Teach Me To Fly, followed by The Sailor Needs The Sea.....
I was delighted to attend Harriet Ames' Release Party in Nashville and hear her sing all these songs Live accompanied by Razzy Bailey and Mike Dunbar!!! This is a wonderful addition to any CD collection and one that I will listen to often!

It'sabout time!
It's about time that the world heard Harriet Ames. I have enjoyed her music since we met years ago in Kingston, WA and played all the same venues.
Harriet has a unique style of playing and writing that makes you sit,lean a bit closer,close your eyes and listen intently to every word. My favroite song has been and still will be Teach Me To Fly

Her CD touched my soul
I have known Harriet since she was about seven years old. We were an item in the fourth grade but both moved on. Her CD truely touched my soul. I Wont Be Here Long brought tears to my eyes and Teach Me to Fly made me take a hard look at my life and dreams. Harriet has grown up a lot since the fourth grade, as I would expect her to do. I don't think I really know her anymore but her music speaks directly to me in so many ways.

Good Luck and much future success Harriet. Just don't forget that kid in your fourth grade class because he will never forget you.
