Brett Harris’ set from the Daytrotter venue in Davenport, Iowa on June 6, 2016 is short, but snappy. Many of the songs he performed were off of his recently released LP, Up In The Air. In addition to his work as a solo musician, Harris has also participated in live performances of Big Star’s Third and worked as a touring sideman with the dB’s.
With Harris’ soaring harmonies on tracks such as “Out of The Blue,” this performance will appeal to many different kinds of music listeners. Harris’ songwriting approach is pure and skillful, and many of his songs clearly do well in a live setting. If you enjoy artists such as Nick Lowe, Harry Nilsson, or Elvis Costello, you should certainly check out this stellar performance.
