If you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing Jaimee Harris perform, chances are good you take away something powerful with you. Her lyrics set something in motion that triggers the memory, melts the heart, warms the soul, maybe even strikes that chord within that leaves you a bit forlorn. Harris is an extremely talented songwriter and incredible, passionate singer. But there’s one more thing that makes her extraordinary – she’s a huge supporter of her musical peers. Harris also has a natural skill, instinct, creativity and flexibility that allows her to collaborate with her fellow artists in a number of ways.
Whether she’s at an open mic night at Strange Brew with Kacy Crowley, performing with The Painted Redstarts at Spider House Ballroom or The Continental Club, or catching sets by James McMurtry in The Continental Club’s upstairs gallery, or The Happen-Ins at the Mohawk, she is front and center, completely present for the moment, and continuously inspired by others’ talents.
Make sure you see Jaimee Harris perform with a full band tonight at Holy Mountain, 617 E. 7th St. Doors open at 9 p.m., and Harris and her band play at 9:30 p.m., followed by St. Louis folk/roots/Monk jazz-influenced outfit Mt. Thelonious at 10:30 p.m., and melodic folk/acoustic duo Tahoma at 11:30 p.m. Recommended.
