Album Notes
Channeling influences as diverse as Woody Guthrie, Kurt Cobain, Hank Williams, and Raymond Carver, Seven Harkey’s “singable short stories” tell tales of longing, love, drugs, death, and other earthly delights. His music has been called “edgy & compelling”, “infectious” and “delightfully disturbing”, with performances compared to Grant Lee Buffalo, early Wilco, and even Gram Parsons backed by Pageant-era R.E.M.

Growing up in rural North Carolina, Seven swished with country music, gargled with pop, and spit southern rock. On the cusp of the Alt-Country surge of the early nineties, Seven greyhounded to San Francisco, where he explored “garage country” with Farmgirl, and “powerfolk” with the Lomaxes. But after seven years in a seven-by-seven-mile town, his hunger for a change of atmosphere drove him east to Chicago. After a series of musical incarnations, he continues to evolve his unique brand of guitar-playing and word-singing to new levels of strum and bash.

Seven was hand-picked by legendary writer Ben Fong-Torres to perform on his Fog City Radio NPR show. In the studio, Seven has lent his talents to recordings by John Wesley Harding and E (of Eels). Live, he has played with Jeff Buckley, Peter Himmelman, Leon Russell, Southern Culture on the Skids, Chris Isaak, and more.

Kicks Major A** A great collection of tunes
dirtysomething..... Don't miss it. I just got mine and I love it. I call it delightfully disturbing. It's haunting, raw, edgy, the real deal.
"Dirt and Dust" Kicks Major A** . A GREAT collection of tunes.
Happy Customer

sweet can not wait for the next CD
First time I heard this CD. So I bought it. There are some catchy tunes, some just seem to stay in your head. Seven Harkey needs to release more of his music.
