Sim Sim Debut Performance!

November 11, 2013


November 19 NYC at Rockwood Music Hall stage 2, 8pm: Singer/guitarist/songwriter Margaret Glaspy and I have started a new group called sim sim.  This will be our debut performance, featuring not only new songs, some of which we wrote together, but new arrangements of some old hits.  Margaret is holding down the lead vocals, and if you haven’t heard her sing, you should come check this out.  Jeremy Gustin will play drums and Devin Hoff bass.


Huffington Post: A-Sides

August 27, 2013

Jesse stopped by A-Sides recently to perform a song and chat about his new album with Jon Chattman. Check out the write-up here and the videos below.


“Borne Away” is “unlike any other record I’ve done before”

It’s been only about 11 months since Jesse Harris released “Sub Rosa,” his 2012 album featuring guest appearances by several of his musical friends, including Norah Jones and Conor Oberst. But in the past year, while touring behind “Sub Rosa,” Harris entered another creative period. He wrote a new batch of songs — about 30, to be exact — and decided he had more than enough good material to record another album.


JesseHarris-BorneAway-CDHappy Summer Everybody! Today is the official release of my new album Borne Away. It is, without a doubt, the most intimate recording I’ve ever made. I didn’t think I would go back into the studio so soon after Sub Rosa, but last year was an especially fruitful one for songs. As a matter of fact, this album represents only half of what was recorded. Perhaps a volume two will appear one day!  In the meantime, I’d love if you ordered a copy. I’m releasing it on my label Secret Sun Recordings in the States (with Hillstone in Japan and Som Livre in Brazil) and every sale helps a lot. It’s available on vinyl, digital, and CD. There are also still copies left of the limited Japanese edition, so grab one while you can – it’s a beautiful signed-and-numbered hardcover book with the cd, extra illustrations by Asuka Ohsawa, full lyrics, and liner notes by painter Nicholas Weber.



If you’re in New York City tonight, join me for the album release gig with Julian Lage, Anthony Wilson, and Bill Dobrow at Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm. $10 tickets can be purchased here.

We also have a show Saturday at the amazing art center in Red Hook, Pioneer Works, that will also feature sets by Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Margaret Glaspy, and Julian Lage.

All the best!
