Mic’s Birthday Shindig and 6 O’Clock Swerve!

Big show coming up!

December 28th Mic and The High Score will be playing Barleys in Knoxville for the live radio show The WDVX 6 O’Clock Swerve.  It also happens to be Mic’s birthday so we’re making it a shindig and staying on for a special show afterwards with our buddies The Early Favorites!

It’s become a tradition for Mic to play on his birthday, so come out and celebrate with us!

 

 

Thanks!

 

We’ve had some fantastic shows lately!

Mic had a great solo run with Kevin Abernathy and Josh Smith and we couldn’t have done it without the hospitality of folks on the road, so thank you!

Then we had a killer show in Nashville at the 5 Spot with a whole slew of bands sharing the stage!

This has been a great month for mail orders as well, so a great big thank you to each and every one of you who has ordered online from our band camp page.  You can download our songs and buy the physical copies right here:  Mic Harrison and The High Score band camp

Routes & Branches Review “Vanishing South”

Brand new review of Vanishing South.
ROUTES & BRANCHES
featuring the very best of americana, alt.country and roots music
April 8, 2017
Scott Foley, purveyor of dust

Standing outside their tour van on the verge of departing for the road, Mic Harrison & the High Score resemble some scruffy fellows who have shown up to move your furniture.  That’s the first good sign.  There’s also the fact that Harrison launched his career as part of the short-lived but iconic alt.country outfit the V-Roys with Scott Miller, as well as serving with Superdrag.  After a stint as a solo guy, Harrison gathered musical forces with guitarist Robbie Trosper under the present moniker, releasing a slate of quality alt.country LPs to positive critical acclaim (though they’d still have no problem showing up for your couch without attracting the neighbors’ attention).

The band’s new release, Vanishing South, trades in a strain of alt.country that’s more common on the stages of small town dives than on your favorite radio station or on the shelves of that great record store that doesn’t really exist anymore.  Think Bottle Rockets.  Blue Mountain. Maybe some of the rootsier dBs?  A Mic Harrison & the High Score number is constructed from the guitar out, never more busy than necessary, but always smarter than you’d expect… (READ FULL REVIEW HERE)
