STOP PRESS: 'TOUCH' HITS THE CHARTS!!
Vicky's many fans will be pleased to learn that 'Touch' made its debut in the Folk Radio Top 60 chart, published August 2, 2003. Airplay reports for July placed 'Touch' higher than 'Home' by the Dixie Chicks, or 'Beauty of the Rain' by Dar Williams.
In all, 'Touch' has so far been played on nearly 200 stations in the US and a dozen other countries around the world, with new stations being added on a regular basis.
TOUCH is the long-awaited debut release from Connecticut singer-songwriter, Vicky Harris. Co-produced with top musician and songwriter Michael Mugrage (Rory Block, Chaka Khan etc), the album features 14 emotionally charged songs in a largely acoustic folk vein, written or co-written by Vicky herself.
The four clips available on this page give you just a small taste of Vicky's soaring vocals and insightful songwriting; but if you like what you hear, don't take my word about the rest of the album - listen to what CDBaby's own President, Derek Sivers, has to say:
"Vicky, I love your 'Touch' CD so much I'm going to feature it on the front page of CD Baby... We're REALLY picky about what goes on the front page. We get about 75 new albums a day coming in here now, (about 30,000 total), and yours is one of the best I've ever heard."
Or take a look at this response from Fred Migliore, host and executive producer of nationally syndicated radio show FM Odyssey:
"Congratulations girl, this CD has a wonderful appeal to it... I've created a category in my soul called the Laura Nyro, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Carrie Newcomer category. It is a very gifted category that many can't be a part of. I'd like to add you to that category."
'Touch' is a fully professional recording, engineered and mastered to the highest standards, and comes complete with a glossy, 16-page booklet of lyrics and photos. This package stands comparison with any CD you can buy in a record store.
