ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael Reno Harrell is an award winning songwriter, as well as a veteran storyteller and entertainer, and he’s from the South…the Southern Appalachian Mountains to hone it a bit finer. Four decades of performing have taken him to over forty states and many foreign countries. One could compare Michael’s performances to your granddaddy’s pocket knife, well warn and familiar feeling, but razor sharp and with a point. He gets the job done. His recordings top the Americana Music Association charts year after year. Michael’s combination of music and storytelling are based in experience, sometimes downright funny, sometimes just plain scary, maybe even with a message worth taking away, but always mesmerizing and entertaining.
He has penned hits for Nashville receiving both Gold and Platinum Awards. Michael won First Place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting contest at Merle Fest in 2002. He has recorded with some of the giants in the acoustic field including pals Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas. His storytelling has been described as, "Andy Griffith with an edge" and "...the Appalachian Mark Twain". Don’t miss an opportunity to immerse yourself in the Southern Experience.

Qoutes:

“…a complete songwriter, one who delivers the goods with power and without pretension " -Dirty Linen Magazine
"Harrell invites you into his soul rather than merely allowing you to peek through barred windows.."
-amazon.com

“Michael Reno Harrell writes like a jeweler might work on a watch; Every piece has its place, every part is for a purpose, and the result is everything moves.
-Country Music Today

"Michael Reno Harrell is one of those natural born Southern musicians and storytellers who is filled with wit, charm and surprises. Whether the story is in song or narrative, Michael will draw you in and entertain you, all the while making you feel right at home."
-David Holt - Four time Grammy winner and nationally acclaimed musician/storyteller

"Every time I see a picture of this guy, I mistake him for Arlo Guthrie. Harrell's got the long silver locks, yes,...but here's what puts him ahead of Arlo: Harrell's Southern to the bone."
-Mark Kemp - former Rolling Stone music editor
