It’s difficult to fit Jason Harrod’s sound into one genre. It’s not quite indie-folk, not exactly bluegrass, and not really alt-country. But it has catchy melodies, expert guitar work, and honest lyricism, and that’s all you need.
Harrod has been creating music for nearly two decades, and is set to release his latest album Highliner on August 27.
Harrod wrote the song after hearing an interview with one of the first men to walk on the moon.
“I forget his name, which is kind of the point. Here’s a man who reached the very pinnacle of human achievement, and yet most people don’t know his name,” said Harrod.
“Moon Mission” also features Shannon Stephens, whose vocals seamlessly wrap around Harrod’s to create effortless harmonies.
