Heavy Romancer, $4

After making the permanent and international move down to the U.S. last year from Canada, Braden, Scott and Emma now reside in Nashville, TN and just released a new EP entitled Heavy Romancer.

Drawing on a wide range of influences including folk, blues and rock music, this new EP features six tracks penned by the trio themselves. Although their music does not strictly classify as country, it seems fit that Harvey Cameron is finding great success in Nashville, a town known for its respect and love for the art of songwriting.

Unlike many bands today, the 3 trade off singing lead vocals when it comes to their ear-catching melodies. Underneath these vocals, Braden plays guitar, Scott provides the bass lines and Emma drums (that’s right… a girl on drums, #badass).

Whether it’s a soulful duet about faded passion (“Letting You Go”), a honky-tonk tune sung with the perfect amount of genuine grit (“I’ve Been Thinking Lately”), or an upbeat track about wondering what you’re working towards (“One More”), their voices seamlessly blend together in such a way that will leave your ears craving more. and more. and more.

We deserve something better than the hurt
It’s not bad but you know it could be worse
Seen our share of the stormy weather
It’s not bad but you know it could be better
(“Letting You Go”)

Though it’s hard to fit Harvey Cameron’s music into one specific genre, what is certain is that this threesome has truly crafted up an EP that demands to be listened to.

Catch Harvey Cameron live at The American Music Festival at Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn on July 4th.
