“like JJ Cale covering Dire Straits. . . I can already hear Bob Harris waxing lyrical about this in the early hours of the morning on BBC Radio 2!”
Paul Jackson, Fatea Reviews (UK), 2016
“Madison’s new folk and Americana music scene is bursting at the seams. . .But no one’s been behind the plow longer, works harder, or writes a better lament than Josh Harty”
Andy Moore, No Depression, 2015
Josh Harty’s unique blend of American music has become a must-hear for those who keep the tradition of country, blues and folk close to their hearts. The touring bug has never left him as he continuously travels across Europe and North America. More than just moving along, he’s spending plenty of time in the communities along the way, from Brooklyn to Haarlem, from London to Portland. Harty is always looking for that balance between the rolling road and the people who inspire him, trading stories around kitchen tables and theatre stages. His live shows prove that good storytelling combined with journeyman musicianship is as American as music gets.

Written in the bleached out swamps of South Florida and recorded in London, ‘Cracked Picture Frames’ is a hard-core and stripped-down survey of ballad, blood, and bone. ‘Sharp, intelligent, thoughtful and moving’ (Folk Radio UK), the bristling full-length debut by American songwriter Robert Chaney rings with echoes of Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, and early Tom Waits, but the exceptional quality of Chaney’s lyrics, as well as his melodic sensibility make for a thoroughly original album that is ‘head and shoulders above its peers’ (Blabber ‘n’ Smoke).
