Brian “Brain” Harrison

After the Dusty record, I was so weary of dealing with record labels. After 21 years in the business, 10 records under my belt and a career that was secure enough to bet on, I decided it was time to create my own record label.

I was never really any good at dealing with labels, but as years went by I got worse. I knew deep down I needed the freedom my own label would provide. So I bit the bullet, drained my savings account and opened EVERSO RECORDS in 2009. Tears, Lies, and Alibis was the first release on my label. It was the beginning of a friendship and a great working relationship with Brian Harrison. He engineered and played bass on the record. We gathered new and old friends and put this one together, went on the road and had an amazing tour.

These songs are about my great desire and longing to own and live in an Airstream camper, SOMETHING TO BE SAID, my romance with Jack Daniels whiskey and its desirous but evil ways with OLD #7. And the song that saved me from a writers’ slump LOSER DREAMER, which I wrote about Brian “Brain” Harrison. He and I put this record together, gathered all of my demos I had recorded on 2-inch in the California desert, he flew the tapes back to Nashville so we could put the finishes on the record at his home recording studio. It was a freedom I knew I always wanted and needed in order to create.

Boundaries and walls get in the way of creation. An artist has to be able to explore what’s in the mind and the heart inside of the inspired moments. More and more I knew time frames and opinions from outsiders just got in my way. I was on the road to my own place and time with no borders. I finally felt free.
