Harvey Russell is no stranger to country music, having begun his career as the frontman for the alt-country Harvey Swagger Band, followed by five years of touring and recording with country-fold duo, Peasant Moon. Harvey loves what he describes as the ‘challenge’ of writing a quality country song; although they can sound simple, there’s an honesty to country music which means there are few places to hide. Harvey has set his sights on a solo career and has been writing up a veritable storm of country classics. We were delighted when he entrusted Talk Ink. with the honour of helping launch his debut solo album.
