The original songs of Steve Harris are contagious. Heartfelt songs with memorable melodies you'll be singing in your head for days. Steve's fluid acoustic guitar style has been influenced and blended by years of playing professionally in folk, bluegrass and Celtic bands in a variety of venues. Steve became permanently disabled in late 2001, but music continues to be a positive healing and creative force in his life. For this CD, Steve collaborated with Mark Dodge to bring his solo acoustic songs into full bloom. Mark plays guitar, bass, drums, organ, and tenor ukulele on this record, and contributed arrangements and musical themes, ranging from the delicate acoustic tones of 'Tom' to the dense layers of the title track, 'Northwestern Sky.' Several songs on the record also feature the saxophone virtuosity of Big Quack Records' artist Tim Miller, as well as the pure sweet harmony vocals of the South End String Band's Wende Hilyard. The result is an eclectic record that touches on the fringes of folk, jazz, and rock; great songs you'll be singing in your head for days.
