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)

Daily Times Maryville Story

Great Story from the one and only Steve Wildsmith at the Daily Times Maryville

In the grand tradition of songwriting partnerships that include the “Glimmer Twins” (Mick Jagger and Keith Richards), the “Toxic Twins” (Steven Tyler and Joe Perry) and the “Jersey Twins” (Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora), the two dudes at the heart of Mic Harrison and The High Score need a nickname of their own.

To be clear, the band is not a duo; if anything, the removal of the other guys — bassist Vance “The Exotic Hillbilly” Hillard, drummer Don “Donnie Hott” Coffey and guitarist Chad Pelton — from the lineup would cause the whole thing to crumble and collapse. But with “Vanishing South,” the band’s latest album the boys will celebrate with a release show on Friday at Barley’s Knoxville, the chemistry between Harrison and guitarist Robbie Trosper deserves to be recognized as something damn special….-Read Full Article Here
