Jason Hawk Harris hit rock bottom during the writing and recording of his debut full-length Love & the Dark. In the last few years, the Houston-born-and-raised, Los Angeles-based musician endured life-altering hardships—illness, death, familial strife, and addiction—yet from these trials, a luxuriant and confident vision of art country emerged. This is an album I highly recommend. As well, we’ll explore new music from Stephen Grady, Esther Rose, RW Hedges, Nagillum and more!
