Will Payne Harrison
Born and raised in Jenkintown, PA, Veronica Stanton now lives 827 miles away in Nashville, a move which inspired her to pen the heartfelt title track of her debut EP. In “827 Miles”, the singer-songwriter invites you into her world of wanderlust, heartbreak, and all the mistakes and joys that being a 20-something entails. Stanton cracks her heart open for all to examine, and the contents are beautifully vulnerable songs that speak to the part of each of us that’s a little lost.
Erin Rae, who contributed harmonies to Stanton's EP, said “the most meaningful journey is the one we make within ourselves, and with this pure and genuine debut effort she has bravely begun hers; a journey that will no-doubt find a wide audience of listeners who remember or yearn for that journey inward of their own.”
Will Payne Harrison
Everyone knows that Louisiana is a great melting pot of music, food and Southern culture. Will Payne Harrison simmered in that pot for most of his life, soaking in influences of Traditional Cajun, Louisiana Blues, Swamp Pop, New Orleans Brass Bands and Zydeco. Even after departing Louisiana for Nashville to start his own solo career, he has kept in touch with his Louisiana Roots making his own unique blend of Americana and Roots music. On East Nashville Blues, Will Payne Harrison dove deeper into Bluegrass, Country and Singer-Songwriter genres, using a cast of top-notch Nashville musicians. With his newest album, Living With Ghosts, Harrison went back to his roots, bringing in the Crème de la crème of Louisiana musicians featuring The Rayo Brothers members (Jesse Reaux, Lance Kelehan and Jordan Ardoin) along with lead guitarist Jim McGee. Fats Kaplin (John Prine) even joined in on pedal steel and fiddle. Slated to be out in late Summer/early Fall, Living With Ghosts will encompass the perfect blend of Will Payne Harrison’s Louisiana/Nashville sound.
