The new JP Harris and the Tough Choices album “Home Is Where The Hurt Is” was released on September 23, 2014 on Cow Island Music. Check out a few words about the new album below :
Home Is Where The Hurt Is (produced by Harris, guitarist Adam Meisterhans, and engineer Justin Francis) was recorded and mixed at Ronnie’s Place (formerly the personal studio of Ronnie Milsap) in Nashville. It features your not-so-typical Music Row studio musicians, but young local players, many of whom have spent thousands of miles on the road in JP’s backing band The Tough Choices. Lending a hand on the album vocally is friend and local Indie-Country star Nikki Lane, as well as long-time friend Chance McCoy, singer and guitarist of Old Crow Medicine Show. McCoy also took rhythm and lead guitar in addition to fiddle duties throughout the album.
After two years of touring without much in the way of recorded music, Harris made a trip to the sweltering heat of south Louisiana. In an old Cajun cook shack he and a few pals pounded out an album in three days, and shortly after it’s completion, he made the move to Nashville. JP released his all-original debut I’ll Keep Calling in May of 2012 on Cow Island Music. Shortly after it’s release, without the aide of publicists or a large label’s bankroll, it won “Best Country Album of 2012” from the Nashville Scene, the same honor at the Independent Music Awards, a cameo on NPR’s American Routes, and as JP says “a whole mess of other stuff in the papers and on the internet.” Two songs were also licensed to the soundtrack of 2012’s At Any Price starring Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron.
When he isn’t touring, JP can usually be found repairing an old house, splitting wood in his backyard, or digging through the trash for useable refuse.
This is a great album. You can also find JP Harris & the Tough Choices here :
