Mic Harrison & the High Score "Keep On Letting Me Down"

There is something so comforting to me about the sound of jangling guitars. Maybe it reminds me of growing up, when the insistence of a riff; the tone and texture, was a defining statement. Mic Harrison and The High Score bring a brand new CD to us, Great Commotion, which is the follow up to 2008's On The Right Side Of The Grass. The guys all have day jobs, and they all took a six month break to write and record the new album, adding to a catalog of music that started for Mic in the early 1990's. Back then, the Bradford, Tennessee native (just beside the Kingdom of Skullbonia) was asked to join the Knoxville based V-Roys just as the band was being signed by Steve Earle for his E-Squared Records. Harrison was a 29 year old sawmill worker and singer-songwriter. The V-Roys recorded three albums, and toured all across the United States and Europe before they called it quits on New Years Eve of 1999. Mic had short stints with The Faults, Superdrag, and then two solo albums, when he met The High Score in 2007.

Great Commotion is the first release totally recorded and produced by the band, and then mastered by 'The Master' Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, marrying roots rock with power pop. And that provides for catharsis. Enjoy the video of "Keep On Letting Me Down."
