Teach Me to Fly
Harriet's songs will touch you, make you laugh, and maybe even make you cry. They will definitely lift you up and make your spirit fly. Some are soft and tender, and inspiring; some are funny. All are full of insight into what matters most. Harriet's soaring vocals and heartfelt delivery will take you to new places in your heart....or help you revisit some of your favorite memories, because she's been there too. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Harriet grew up near Seattle, Washington. She started writing songs around the age of seven. Where other children might have written in their diaries, Harriet wrote songs about the rites of passage through childhood. College and marriage took her away to California, Oregon, and Colorado. And 15 years later, she finally made her way back to the Olympic Peninsula, just to the west of her old home in Seattle. For 14 years, she was a regular at the highly popular Seabold Second Saturday open mic, along with a few others open mics on the west edge of Puget Sound. Much of that time she spent working with her husband as co-owners of Skunk Bay Mushroom Farm. But after 10 years... they shut down the farm and moved on to Texas, where Harriet was finally able to start making plans for her first CD. Excellently produced by Mike Dunbar, in Nashville, Teach Me to Fly is surely the first of several CDs to come from Harriet. Highlights include 2002 Just Plain Folks Best Lyric Nominee Teach Me To Fly, 2004 Just Plain Folks Best Lyric Nominee I Won't Be Here Long, both anthems for the dreamers in all of us... and of course the totally irreverent send-up to "Mr. Ego Himself" Last Man On Earth.
