Alt-country rockers Daniel Harrison and the $2 Highway will celebrate the release of the debut CD Humidity at the New Dodge in Hamtramck on May 18. Cover is $8, and the bill also includes the Wall Clocks, Shotgun Soul and Jesse Passage.
According to a statement, “Daniel Harrison and the $2 Highway is a not-so-traditional five-piece band from Detroit, Michigan. Their groove-laden mixture of alternative country and roots is layered with complex conga beats, entrancing guitar solos, and danceable bass lines, all driven by the deep thumping of the Djembe. Rounding out this unconventional group are the soulful and sometimes haunting lyrics generated by Daniel Harrison's powerful, yet primal voice.”
The album was recorded at Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak with Al Sutton behind the desk.
“ We’re proud that we were able to produce music that is an expression of our souls,” Harrison explains. “We're excited that we're finally able to put something tangible in our fans' hands and hope that they're able to identify with the music. After all, that's what music is all about - being able to connect with people and possibly make some sort of difference to them.”
