While she’s been compared to the likes of Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin, the musicianship behind Americana artist Jaimee Harris is entirely unique. Born in Waco, Harris moved to the Live Music Capital ten years ago and immediately fell in love with the vibrant music scene and late night energy. But after falling in with Austin’s hard-partying nature, Harris collected herself, reckoned with her demons and doubled down on her passion: songwriting. Harris’ 2018 debut LP Red Rescue chronicles her path to sobriety over the course of ten intensely personal tracks and her live shows are oozing with emotion.
Jaimee Harris joined us in Studio 1A back in February and plays 5:35pm tomorrow on the Campground Stage at Old Settler’s Music Festival. For a taste of Harris’ stripped-down acoustic performance, listen back to the Studio 1A rendition of her first single, “Depressive State”!
