ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brady Harris' new CD LONE STAR is the follow-up to 2000's critically acclaimed GOOD LUCK STRANGER (Top 10 CDs of 2000: Pop Culture Press, Delusions of Adequacy).

"One of the strongest roots-pop releases we've heard not only in 2003 but in the last few years."
-NOT LAME RECORDS (www.notlame.com)

"The Texas-bred, Los Angeles-based Harris goes on a highly rewarding musical trip through Beatlesque pop-rock and singer-songwriter intimacy."
-Michael Berick, NO DEPRESSION MAGAZINE

"Brady Harris' Lone Star is Brit Pop mixed with country-rock. You'll feel like you're in a London metro feeling suddenly retro. Great stuff."
-Tony Peyser, SANTA MONICA MIRROR

"Three years on since his critically acclaimed Good Luck Stranger, Brady Harris returns with Lone Star, a lush and layered third effort. Rich in its details, Harris' tunes range everywhere from '80s college radio somewhere between the dB's and The Church, to echoes of the Beatles filtered through lazy, twangy Americana. He capably assembles the sweetest of melodies alongside darker sentiments, making for honest, aching song craft. With a voice often likened to John Lennon on his early solo albums, this California dwelling Texas native seems to bring the best of both locales to his sound - twinkling pop, dark humor and engaging storytelling."
-MILES OF MUSIC (www.milesofmusic.com)

"Another set of alt. country-pop from Harris, who is quietly writing and performing some of the best songs around these days. Think Ryan Adams, only a bit more faithful to whatever sound he's playing at the moment.

Harris writes songs that immediately affect me...He knows how to make a song bite immediately and how to reel in a listener slowly as well.

In my last review (Good Luck Stranger), I called his songs timeless. That description fits the pieces on this album as well. Harris shouldn't be unknown for much longer. Talent like his is all too rare."
-Jon Worley, AIDING & ABETTING

BIO:
"Former frontman for the Replacements-inspired Solid Goldsteins, Brady Harris' solo career has diverged from his previous work into a sound altogether more indicative of his Texas roots. Bearing considerable vocal resemblance to John Lennon, Harris crafts moody country-rock with a hard pop edge. Strongly melodic with a confident wit, he combines well-traveled themes with stoic romanticism. Having paid his dues as a starving artist, busking on the streets of Paris and London, Harris found himself in Los Angeles recording one album with his former bandmates before releasing his solo debut in 1997. That album, Next Door to Nowhere, received favorable reviews and was followed by considerable media attention at 1999's NXNW music conference. Good Luck Stranger (2000) was met with near unanimous critical approval and Harris went on to tour Europe in late 2000. He spent the next two years touring the states where he racked up numerous awards, including $5,000 from the Pontiac Vibe Car Commercial Contest, which helped him finance 2003's highly anticipated Lone Star."

-Jon Worley, AIDING & ABETTING

above those with whom he will be categorized."

Matt Jones

Like Diet Coke with sunshine and honey
Lean, refreshing, complete, sensual...If Sade were a white male from Texas that moved to Venice, CA and sang Beatlesy Country Pop, she would have some stiff competition in Brady Harris- listen to "Can't Wait 2CU" for proof. He does it his way, culling all that is beautiful and hopeful, blending it in his bedroom laboratory, and bypassing the man that always F's things up. Here comes the sun, and I say, it's Brady Harris.

Bearing considerable vocal resemblance to John Lennon, Brady Harris crafts moody country-rock with a hard pop edge. Strongly melodic with a confident wit, he combines well-traveled themes with stoic romanticism. Along with the apparent Beatles resemblence, the underlying tone of the album bares similarities to the classic songwriting style of Elliot Smith.

Anyone out there remember albums?
Anyone out there remember albums? I'm not talking about the fragmented slabs of singles & filler that come out every Tuesday. I'm talking about the complete experience, made up of songs, art, and the printed word. Something you can absorb as a whole. Thankfully, Brady Harris has remembered for us - delivering an album of songs that hang together like fellow leaves on the same tree.

A musical slamdunk...the album shines like a beacon of cool
This is one of the best CD's I've purchased...not just from CD Baby, but best I've ever bought (and I own 'Rubber Soul' and 'Pet Sounds'). Harris is less more 'Alt' that 'Alt-Country.' Anyone that likes Rhett Miller or The Beatles will enjoy 'Lone Star.' Every track is an achivement. 'Weekend in Detroit' and 'Ordinary Song' stand out as I write this, but any song could be a radio single. Buy it today, be in musical nirvana tomorrow.
