Description

Harlem River marks the solo debut of songwriter Kevin Morby. Known for his work as the singer and guitarist for the Brooklyn band The Babies and bassist for Woods, the Kansas City native and new Los Angeles resident calls the record ‘an homage to New York City’, his adopted home for the past five years.

Harlem River features eight interweaving tales of tragedy and misfortune; a series of desperate characters playing out their dramas with the city as backdrop. A departure from some of the signature sounds of his better known projects, Morby’s songs glisten with a haunting intimacy and while he maintains that the songs are stories about other people, it’s hard not to feel a piece of him in each one; a half-imagined, half-painfully personal world of lost love, addiction, violence and prayers for the departed.

The album was recorded in Los Angeles in February and March 2013 with producer Rob Barbato who recorded The Babies’ second album, Our House On The Hill, and whose guitar and bass work figure prominently on Harlem River. The album also features drummer Justin Sullivan (The Babies) as well as contributions from Will Canzoneri, Tim Presley (White Fence), Dan Lead and Cate Le Bon.

Kevin's second solo album, Still Life, will be released via Woodsist in October.

Support comes from Irma Vep and Fully Mared.

Kraak is a performance and exhibition space in the Northern Quarter. It’s down a cobbled street, just behind Fit To Dance off Stevenson Square.

This show is a co-promotion with Comfortable On A Tightrope.
