Will Payne Harrison
“Harrison follows in the footsteps of his heroes, telling stories that can make you smile right before they make you cry. Willie Nelson and John Prine would be proud.” – Mother Church Pew, Nashville, TN
“Living With Ghosts is an engaging dispatch, a shaken mixture of Bayou and Nashville influences settling in a solution of 100-proof small-town America.” – City Beat Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
“His new single “Jacqueline” is a catchy fusion of Roots and Americana and rockabilly that will inspire you to explore more of Will Payne Harrison’s catalog!” Meet-Country.com
“It is often said that to move forward, you must remember where you came from. Louisiana native, Nashville living singer/songwriter Will Payne Harrison highlights the best of both worlds on his album Living With Ghosts” ProCountryMusic.com
“Harrison’s rich, dulcet voice imbues the lyrics with affluent velvety textures rife with nostalgia and emotional relief.” – Rawckus Magazine
“The biggest truth in this record is my journey,” singer/songwriter Jess Jocoy says of her refined yet rootsy debut album, Such a Long Way. While its songs don’t always tell her story, they certainly show her progress. From the big picture pep talk that is “Existential Crossroads” to the father-son stand-off of “Castles Made of Sand” through the tender reminder of “Hope,” Such a Long Way showcases a thoroughly literate young songwriter finding her voice and staking her claim with equal parts grit, grace, and gravitas.
Having grown up south of Seattle, hitting every karaoke night and singing competition her parents would drive her to, Jocoy kept her eye ever on the prize: Nashville. “I’d had this dream that I was going to move to Nashville and be a country singer like Miranda Lambert or Faith Hill, and get a record deal, and sell out stadiums,” she says. With a twang in her voice, an edge to her sound, and a fire in her belly, Jocoy might just do it.
“If you ever wondered what Janis Joplin would have sounded like doing country, the answer may be in [Kate Coleman]”~ monoblogue music
