J.P. Harris & The Touch Choices tour Europe in support of album "Home Is Where The Hurt Is"

17-04-2015

J.P. Harris & The Touch Choices are kicking off their extensive European tour THIS MONDAY in Brighton, before heading down to Spain, hitting Switzerland and Germany, residing in The Netherlands and Belgium for a couple, continuing through Scandinavia before ending in a two week stroll throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. See all tourdates below!

An Alabama native -- just like the previous six-plus generations of his bloodline -- J.P. Harris and his family headed west to California and Nevada when he was a kid. Then, when he was 14, Harris set out on his own with little more than a backpack, a tarp, and a bedroll to his name, living a story more common in 1937 than 1997. Harris made his way to the Northeast, picking up whatever work he could -- laborer, lumberjack, luthier. Suffice it to say, the man knows a thing or two about difficult scenarios. It's not surprising that, when Harris eventually carved out a music career for himself, he dubbed his band J.P. Harris & The Touch Choices. And those are the guys, along with some guest stars like Nikki Lane and Chance McCoy (of Old Crow Medicine Show), filling out the sound on his latest album, "Home Is Where the Hurt Is". The set is a collection of twang-laden gems, but don't call it “roots music.” Harris eschews labels like “Americana” and “folk,” preferring to have his music branded as straight-up, capital 'C' Country.
