Sunday Spotlight with Harper Grae

Drilling down to the truth, no matter the consequence is what is at the heart and core of Harper Grae’s upcoming release, Buck Moon Medleys. Native Americans have a name for every month’s moon. July owns the Buck Moon, a time of renewal and fresh growth. This ambitious collection of songs and companion music videos takes that theme and places it alongside its opposites: loss and release, and the eventual common ground: acceptance. The running thread of this body of work is a theme we can all relate to: endings and beginnings, the elemental sense of hope common to all which permeates our soul and fizzes through our blood, creating connections and bonds that are undeniable, and in the end, unbreakable. Energy begets energy, and can’t be destroyed, therefore an ending is only a new beginning; a connection demolished by bad choices gets a second chance, in the end. The four song collection was co-written by Grae and a set of some of Nashville’s most innovative writers, including artist and hit songwriter Jennifer Hanson and hit songwriter/producer and engineer Nick Brophy, who together co-produced the record. Hanson and Brophy provide a delicate and deft hand in the production, allowing the arrangements to float over and around Grae’s powerful and expressive vocals.
