            I think this is the 9th time I have attempted to compose the WAY overdue Harvest City blog! Pretty sure I began the others (from 5-now) the same way. Josh Eagle and The Harvest City is a band that is making their 3rd record. We do not know what it is yet to be called, but we have some ideas: some sentimental, some haha, some have not yet manifested…So for now we will simply call it #3. We are working a little more experimental, it seems (my dog, Gonzo, is doing the same apparently, as he recently ate one of the farmhouse chickens. That’s another story for another day!). Yes yes, we have made use of our new baby grand piano, mandolin, trash cans, banjo (once it is fixed… another studio massacre.) Leaving things wide open is important and I think very difficult to do for a lot of musicians and people in general…Our JEHC goal=  hearts beating together, our moments are to be lived in, our big egos are not aloud to exist in any way shape or form. Shit on big ego! And this works for us as we go on a musical ride. It is fun and we all dream of this to be full time so soon :)

We had a bundle of songs on the last record used for a TV show called The Voice and a few MTV spots (something about being 16 and prego) there’s that.

Show shows shows!  Fountain square (Cincy), Chicago, Sleepy Creek Vineyards (Illinois), and most soon to be… we’ll be opening for POMEGRANATES Album Release at Madison Theatre. If you do not know these overly talented, kind, exuberant, musical cats then you soon will. The show is June 9th and the weather predicts awesome with a chance of orgasmic. What great new technology.

‘Til we meet again,

Josh Eagle and The Harvest City

JEHC 2011 Highlights--New Video-Happy New Year!!

Hi there. Happy New Year to you and to yours. I wish you goodness now and throughout the year.
I just said to myself how wild it was I hadn't spoken an inter-web word in damn near 6 months. Blow me down, Popeye. That is lousy, neglectful artistry. My friend Rebecca's door has hoisted a very simple, yet fabulous quote that says it all: "Painter, Paint."-Salvador Dali.
Well, Josh...Writer! Write!
I'd like to point out that even though the blogging has not been at high velocity, the past 6 months for The Harvest City and I have been busy and full of deep, creative breathing. Currently we are piecing together tunes for our next record that we begin recording in Feb. It will be on vinyl record. Why? Why not!! We prefer that method of listening and think you should also :)

--Highlights of the Year-- (In no particular order)
*Releasing A Good One is Hard to Find @ The Historical, remarkably beautiful and never forgotten(and now closed) Southgate House.
*Being nominated for 3 CEA Awards and winning for Best Singer/Songwriter
*Being a part of The Whispering Beard Festival/Family
*Performing Midpoint Music Fest
*Opening for one of the finest songwriters around, Mr. Robert Earl Keen
*Touring midwestern towns as much as humanly possible (meeting the warmest folks in excistence)
*Loving our craft and each other throughout it all!

We are putting video(s) for our songs together while we record the record. Look out for ideas that drop out of many sleeves.

Be well and Be TOTAL,
