Artist of the Month: Harvest Thieves

KUTX Artist of the Month

Every month we turn the spotlight on a new release from a Texas artist with a series of weekly features that give you a sneak peek at the new music and some insight into the artist behind it.


Austin’s Harvest Thieves may look like your run-of-the-mill honky-tonkers but don’t let the pearl snaps and cowboy hats fool you. Beneath the plaid is a thoroughly poised and polished country band with a sound honed through years of regular gigs at the now defunct Holy Mountain. The club’s closure also signaled the departure of founding member James Taylor but not an end to the music. Harvest Thieves’ new album Rival, out January 8th, continues the thoughtful lyrics and rich storytelling with a bit of that outlaw country swagger that has become their signature. Harvest Thieves are Cory Reinisch on vocals and guitar, Dustin Meyer on bass, Annah Fisette on keys, Coby Tate on guitar and Wes Cargal on drums. Stay tuned for special features on the Harvest Thieves throughout the month of January.
