New Music | Big Harp – Goodbye Crazy City
by Kyle Mitchell, the editor and founder of Music Savage, lover of music, hater of remixes.
Next week, LA’s Big Harp will release their record White Hat’s (9/13). I’ve had the opportunity t give this a good listen, and honestly haven’t shut it off much at all. American Songwriter has an exclusive stream of the album up now. But first, you might want to give this husband and wife duo a good listen. I’ve posted Goodbye Crazy City, a classic country / folk track that shoes off vocalists Chris Senseney’s deep vocals, straightforward rhythmic approach. Its a track about giving up on being young, leaving the city, and reflecting upon a life of craziness. The simplistic sound, and stripped down approach to songwriting and music is really well done here. There aren’t any frills, just a solid song, sang well, and a guitar that strums along perfectly.
Big Harp will be touring this fall with Maria Taylor in support of White Hat. All shows are listed below.
