HARVEST KINGS

Harvest Kings follow-up to their highly acclaimed debut, Bulletproof is available now!

The band returns with Bulletproof, the highly anticipated follow-up to Cardboard Crowns, finds the central Ohio band venturing out beyond their alt-country roots, with six straight forward mid-western rock songs. The release clearly shows Harvest Kings know how to shake things up with a collection of songs showing their pop sensibilities mixed with indie and classic rock riffs. The songs reflect the changes in the band's songwriting dynamics, as Stewart, Bair and Zezech each contributed music for this release, while Joseph continued to weave stories of rural and suburban mid-western life. The CD also includes a cover of The Godz "Burning Bridges" and finishes with the moody "Walking Dead/Sons of Anarchy" inspired "Cold Comfort."

The Harvest Kings are a Columbus Ohio band consisting of veteran musicians Chris Bair (guitar), Carolyn O'Leary (drums), Kerry Stewart (bass), Jeff Zezech (guitar), and vocalist John Joseph. O’Leary and Bair hail from legendary Columbus Ohio bands and national recording artists Scrawl and Silo the Huskie. Joseph entered the Central Ohio Music Scene with the late 90s alt-country blues rock band Pilot Dogs. While Pilot Dogs did not find national success, they established a solid following and their song “Rip It Up” was featured on a number of Mid-western and European radio stations. Stewart and Zezech have been in a number of successful local and regional bands including The Second State Butchers, The Dirty Flags, Unit 1, Eric Stein Band, and Fetch.

Harvest Kings released their debut full-length CD, “Cardboard Crowns,” on Singing Moon Records in October 2010. The CD quickly found itself on many national alt-country and Americana radio shows and podcasts, eventually landing on Americana Rock Mix's "Top 23 albums of 2010." The songs and the band do not shy away from their Midwestern roots or obvious comparisons to the Columbus "sound" of big guitar riffs, a driving rhythm section and catchy pop melodies. The band and CD fit comfortably next to the likes of Son Volt, The Drams, Tom Petty, The Jayhawks, John Mellencamp, The Replacements, and The Dexateens. Roots Rock, Pop Rock, Americana, Southern Rock, Alt-Country, and Midwestern Indie; however you want to label them, in the end it's about the music.

"Ohio roots run deep for Harvest Kings. . . . frontman John Joseph, whose raspy vocals recall the weathered pipes of Ryan Adams or Paul Westerberg."”

— Kevin Joy, Columbus Dispatch

"With such a flood of great music in 2010, it became a real feat for anyone to rise above the tide. But the Harvest Kings' newest effort became the (not so) little album that could. And did."”

— Von, "Americana Rock Mix

"Alternative meets mainstream rock, Harvest Kings would easily appeal to both the younger & older generations . . . groovy, energetic, driving & introspective. Lyrically thoughtful, the songwriting paints pictures, & weaves common themes into poetic paradoxes. Looking back on life, reflectively . . . rock n roll, with lyrics you will relate to."”

— Steve Dustcircle - Columbus Monthly Review

"Despite the overt twang aesthetic, there's a '90s radio rock undercurrent pulsing through Harvest Kings' music. Big finish "Last Breath" . . . reminds me of Silverchair's "Tomorrow," and it eventually rises into some Slash-style soloing without ever losing its groove." ”

— Chris DeVille - Columbus Alive
