If you haven’t been to Richard Julian and Rosita Kess’ amazing new bar and live music venue Bar Lunatico in Bed Stuy, you’re missing out! Next Thursday the 24th I’ll play two sets there with Star Rover.
At the end of October, Will Graefe and I will travel to Mexico for a number of shows duo before heading up to LA to meet up with Jeremy Gustin and do a JH & Star Rover show at Blue Whale November 9.
We’ll also perform with Petra Haden at Largo November 10, in a bill titled “Petra Haden Sings Jesse Harris,” which is also the title of our album together. Look for a release in Spring 2016!
Are you a fan of Forro in the Dark? Check out their new album of John Zorn’s music, “Forro Zinho,” which I co-produced with the band. You can find it at Tzadik.com.
The new video of “Catch the Ash” from my latest album No Wrong No Right was premiered at Entertainment Weekly. Director Lyle Owerko and I went back to our iPhone roots and shot a quick video that I edited using iMovie.
Veteran singer, songwriter and musician Jesse Harris has just announced the release of new album No Wrong No Right, out Feb. 10 on Dangerbird Records. We are happy today to show you the new video for the track, “Miyazaki,” directed by Luis Ortega. Juxtapoz got both Harris and Ortega to talk about the video, and as you can see, the director gets right to the point.
The 13th solo effort of Grammy Award winning, singer/songwriter Jesse Harris entitled No Wrong No Right is charted for a February 10 release on Dangerbird Records. Enter the obligatory Norah Jones reference that earned him said Grammy, but Jesse Harris is chock full of sad songs and jazzy folk-pop bravado, enough to have collaborated with some of the world’s most talented artists. He’s written genre scaling songs that highlight the performances of artists the likes of Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Bright Eyes, and Cat Power.
Jesse Harris may be known for writing Norah Jones‘ first hit “Don’t Know Why” and collaborating with the likes of Bright Eyes, Cat Power, Feist, M. Ward, Melody Gardot, Mike Patton, John Zorn, Solomon Burke, Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris; however, the singer-songwriter is just as a prolific solo artist, gearing up to release his 13th solo album, No Wrong No Right. Today, we’re excited to premiere the video for the title track. Watch above as Harris and experimental duo Star Rover display their take on modern minimalism in the simple yet striking clip.
Time Out New York once said about the singer/songwriter Jesse Harris, “[His] gift lies in his deft rendering of fleeting moods and passing moments.” This holds particularly true for “Catch the Ash”, a track off of Harris’ new album with Star Rover, No Wrong No Right. The spartan tune uses delicately played minor chords to slow down time as Harris reminds us to “catch the ash before it falls”. Harris rose to fame after writing Norah Jones’ Grammy-winning song “Don’t Know Why”, but since then he’s remained a prolific and unique recording artist, a streak continued by No Wrong No Right.
