"Bryan Haraway is going to be this summer’s sleeper hit rock and roll album.” ~ AmericanHighways.org
Bryan Haraway blurs the lines between Americana and melodic rock & roll on his self-titled solo debut. It's a celebratory record, stacked with layers of electric guitar, horns, pedal steel, and the observations of a sharp songwriter who's learned to appreciate the little things in life. Bryan Haraway’s songs about simple joys and life lessons take s the listener deep into its creator's history of familial and romantic relationships, shining a light on the details that often go overlooked.
Honest and heartfelt, Bryan Haraway builds upon the songwriting career that Haraway kickstarted with his Las Vegas-based rock band, Part-Time Criminals. He juggled multiple roles within that group — frontman, songwriter, producer, booking agent, designer — and his work helped Part-Time Criminal climb to moderate prominence not only in Vegas, but also in cities like Brooklyn, where they opened for Bruce Hornsby at the Brooklyn Bowl. Five years after that band's formation, he widens his sonic palate with Bryan Haraway, whose songs touch not only upon the rock & roll influences of his youth, but also the heartland anthems of Tom Petty, the lush roots-rock of early Josh Rouse, and the alt-country of Wilco.
