by Performing Songwriter Magazine....

"San Francisco songwriter and ecologist Alexis Harte has stepped out of the studio musician and tour sideman shadows and produced a solo record of impressively simple, clean, cosmopolitan folk. Harte's efficiency with words and plainspoken imagery call to mind Richard Buckner; his warm, woody voice and organic melodies are akin to Dave Matthews; and his sophisticated acoustic guitar playing and arrangement are an amalgam of everyone from Bob Mould to Bill Frisell. That, said, Harte's work most certainly stands on its own merits. With Junebug, he hits and airy, uncomplicated, and innocent resonance.

The arrangements on Junebug draw from Latin American, flamenco, and traditional folk influence, and the melodies slip and cast about above the spare acoustic instrumentation with clarity and ease. Harte's lyrics are kitchen-table-simple and stay rooted in the staples of nature, love, reflection without sounding self-indulgent or out of touch with reality. Junebug glides along between inconsolable melancholy and wide eyed happiness and settles into a cool, smiling personal space."

Greetings Alexis!

This is Michael, the fellow on the plane from Seattle to Copenhagen! Thanks so much for sending the second copy of your wonderful CD. I've been listening often the last 2 weeks since I got back. The melodies are feeling more familiar and enjoyable each time. I'm really impressed at your gentle artistry.

I can't be the first person to imagine in some of the numbers a very welcome return of Cat Stevens! Many highlights but I especially love the descending ending of Lies Waiting.

Glad to hear your Swedish concerts were warmly received.
I'm busy ordering #3 CD on-line for another Swedish friend!

Best wishes for getting back to Sweden next year.
Hope to see you in concert one day.

With great appreciation,
Michael

Hi Alexis.
Yes....I did order 3 of them.
Thank YOU!
Actually, I heard about you through a friend of a friend. The commonperson
being Tally, who I think contacted you about assisting you with some
promotional stuff. She gave a couple of copies to a friend, then thatfriend
gave one to me, and I LOVE it.

I've actually ordered these three for three friends of mine...
Will you be in Los Angeles anytime soon?
I'd definitely like to round up some friends to come listen to you play.

Sure...I'd love to be on the list for upcoming shows.
Thanks.
Take care.

Nicole Howard

A really wonderful collection of songs
Heard you on Folk Sampler driving home late and bought your cds the next day. What you do with the guitar is amazing; it feels like the notes you play are an extension of the lyrics you sing, not something separate. Thanks for such great music!

Mike

Super Dooper CD! Definitely worthy of anyones musical library.
Really great music! Incredible talent and unique style.
The artist has an obviously solid future presenting enjoyable music to listeners who enjoy great performers!

Lea @ Glass Growers Gallery

Beautiful music to live by...
Wonderfully crafted with beautiful nuances - each song with it's own... a perfect way to start or finish your day. Thank you Alexis!

Spirited humanism
This album is full of empathy for dreamers, old men sitting on benches, people searching for connection and hope in the seemingly unfeeling city streets. Alexis's work roots out the rich humanistic vein in the mundane business of everyday life, and with his peerless guitar playing, he makes that humanistic spirit dance and caper and look thoughtfully (but never ponderously) at its own reflection. This CD is among my very favorites.
