Since he started playing guitar as a kid, writing songs has been an important outlet for Harrison Whitford. The LA-based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist has spent the last several years lending his warm, expressive guitar skills to Phoebe Bridgers, and even when her music started being noticed, Harrison still felt the urge to flex that creative muscle.
A few years ago, in between touring with Phoebe, Harrison collected the songs he’d written between the ages of 17 and 21 together into his debut album Afraid of Everything, released via Screwdriver Records.
New album Afraid of Nothing, released 12 November 2021 via Screwdriver Records, is both an evolution and continuation of Harrison’s songwriting and sound, a delicate, hushed yet emotionally devastating album that builds upon his unmistakable guitar work and expands to create its own sonic world.
Josh King kicked off his solo career with 2018's ‘Into The Blue’, but the North Carolina-based songwriter is no newcomer.
Years before writing songs that mix the breezy, backwoods bounce of Americana with the hummable hooks of guitar pop, he cut his teeth as the leader of ‘House Of Fools’, an indie-rock outfit signed to Drive-Thru Records. The six-piece band spent years on the road, touring with acts such as Jimmy Eat World and Steel Train along the way.
In 2020 came ‘The Shed’, recorded in the peak of COVID-19 isolation and with it single ‘Man on TV’, a communal track that mixed the all-hands-on-deck harmonies of "We Are the World" with the apocalyptic, rootsy pop/rock of Dawes' “We’re All Gonna Die”.
Solo album number 3 entitled ‘Feel Good’ was released 5 November 2021 via Screwdriver Records. An album almost 2 years in the making, Feel Good pushes Josh and his sound to new limits, creating an album that exudes his talent and personality.
