Bloodshot Records is excited to announce the signing of Houston, TX-raised/Los Angeles-based artist Jason Hawk Harris. The singer/guitarist – formerly of LA-based indie outfit The Show Ponies – self-describes his sound as "meta-apocalyptic country/Americana grief-grass," a tongue-in-cheek amalgam combining his background in music composition education, impassioned song content, and the influence of growing up listening to traditional country, folk, and rock singers.
In 2017, Harris released his first solo effort, a five-song EP Formaldehyde, Tobacco and Tulips, and has been on the road in support of or writing its follow-up ever since. Bloodshot first caught him at Folk Alliance in 2018, when he gave goosebumps to everyone within the dingy walls of a tiny hotel room with his evocative, powerful, and unrestrained live duo set. Later in the year, he opened up for our own Sarah Shook & the Disarmers on a run of tour dates, after which Sarah relayed her wholehearted approval.
Harris will release his full-length debut with Bloodshot in 2019. In the meantime, here are two live videos to get you acquainted with Jason.
