829 Records announces first release by other artist

829 Records was originally started in 2008 with the mission of being a label primarily for Skafish releases. Since then, the label released two albums: What’s This? 1976-79 and Bootleg 21-35.  We have done a lot of work behind the scenes, such as buying and securing rights back to various Skafish projects, including finally regaining the rights to the first Skafish Album, originally released by IRS Records in 1980.

Now, we are so pleased to announce that we are releasing the first record of another artist on the label, our son, Jamie M. Harrison.

Jamie has been a musician since the age of 3 when he began classical piano studies with his father, Skafish. He has become an accomplished pianist/keyboardist, guitarist, vocalist, composer, multi-instrumentalist, performer and producer. He has played with such musical greats as bassist Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Barbara Streisand), country artist/songwriter George Ducas, who not only scored 2 top ten solo hits, but has also written numerous smashes for other artists (Sara Evans, Randy Rogers, Garth Brooks, George Jones), and Grammy Award-winning guitarist/producer Larry Mitchell.

Jamie’s first record, Maybe I’ll Write That Down, is a renewed take on the classic singer/songwriter ballad vein with a modern lyrical and vocal approach. Harrison wrote, produced and performed the track at Shepherd Studios in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Maybe I’ll Write That Down is now available on iTunes, Amazon, You Tube and other music retailers.

The track is also available to stream on Spotify and other streaming services.

Jamie is scheduled to perform with 13 time Grammy Award winner T Bone Burnett and Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges on Saturday, June 10, 2017 as part of the Albuquerque Film and Music Experience.

Every Musical Guest from the Simpsons… in order

Simpsons_FamilyPictureOkay, admit it. We have all watched them, despite occasional rumors to the contrary.  The Simpsons is the longest running sitcom in television history and a list of the pop culture reference based on the show would probably be a very long list. Can you say “Meh?”

The list of guest stars on the show reads like a Hollywood who’s who. They have also had a talented array of musical guests that also reads like a celebrity A-list (including the group Fall Out Boy which took its name from an episode of the show). To celebrate FXX’s 522 episode Simpson Marathon, Billboard Magazine has put together a list of every music guest from the Simpson show, in chronological order. It is a pretty amazing list that includes Johnny Cash, Lady Gaga, the B-52s and so many more.

It is a lovely bit of music trivia and worth checking out. 🙂
