ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Turn it up, and take it easy. Roll down the windows, breath deep, and cruise. Harvest the Heart is a record for
the road, a steady travel companion, and a collection of songs that will stir the mind, and please the ear. But by the end of the album, don’t be surprised if you find yourself at home enjoying a cool drink, lightly rocking on the porch. It’ll take you out, and it’ll bring you home right.

Just two years after his critically acclaimed debut solo release, Greenhorn, in 2011, M.R. Poulopoulos assembled a stellar band of musicians and friends to produce a complete and compelling album full of rich lyrical content with lush and deft arrangements. The album traverses scenic and emotional landscapes, and the stories journey through the complications of relationships, both personal and historical, the wonders of wandering, and explore the difficult remnants of loss, all the while subtly urging the listener to reflect along with the narratives.

Featuring John Rice (Lüt, Red Haired Strangers) on bass and harmony, Tommy Krebs (Alta Mira) on percussion and harmony, Roger Noyes (Dan Johnson & The Expert Sidemen, Arch Stanton Quartet) on Pedal Steel, Laurence Scudder (formerly of Ryan Montbleau Band, Dietrich Strause Band) on viola, and Ryan Dunham (Red Haired Strangers) on harmonica, Harvest the Heart continues Poulopoulos’ literate approach to songwriting and references sounds from the folk, country, and blues genres.

While the foundations of Harvest the Heart are the same as Greenhorn, the presence of, and the communication between the band build upon that foundation, and draw in a wider audience more accustomed to a fuller sound. The album as whole is an exciting new adventure from a promising artist on the songwriter circuit.

Sweetly melodic, melancholy, soulful. "Poulopoulos feels his way through each song like one might find his way through the dark – slowly and carefully. That attention to detail is what defines – and ultimately shines…” (Nippertown). Capital District singer-songwriter Mike Poulopoulos’ songs are honest and eloquent.

". . . a songwriter with a poet’s nerve and a sharp eye for the telling detail. . . like the distilled dream of a man alone at a roadside tavern: stories of recollection, regret, and warmth.” (Dan Johnson) His gentle, storytelling lyrical style is a natural fit for the folk stage, inspired by musicians such as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, and Chris Smither.
