burn one with Roger Harvey on his new Kacey Musgraves cover

September 25, 2019

Roger Harvey is a name the world should know, twice over. His music is expansive and atmospheric, spiritual and welcoming, beautiful and soul-searching. It often feels like he time-traveled from the 1970s, drawing inspiration from artists like Willie Nelson, John Prine, & Neil Young yet his music has a uniquely of-the-now touch.

This fall, Roger will release a series of singles on rare 7’’ lathe cuts, limited to 50 copies each. The first of these singles is a rendition of Kacey Musgraves’ “Burn One With John Prine,” a fitting choice for the young songwriter whose connection to both the plant and artist are apparent across much of his life and catalog.


“Burn One With John Prine” is streaming everywhere today, and the few remaining copies of the 7’’ are available to pre-order now: https://xorogerharvey.bigcartel.com/product/twice-as-high-b-w-burn-one-with-john-prine-7-no-004

Born and raised in rural Pennsylvania just footsteps from Lake Erie, Roger Harvey has been making music for the majority of his life. It brought him out & has taken him places that he never dreamt he’d be able to reach. Carrying him through the low times, enhancing the high times, and introducing him to so much rare beauty that otherwise would have been left unknown. It’s this deeply-spiritual connection to song that’s found Roger incessantly trying to catch the fleeting moments that many music makers and fans are drawn to.


But the struggles that come with a life in song are often more abundant. These hardships have been an integral part of the road Roger’s been winding down all these years. After the release of his sophomore album Two Coyotes (2017), he started to feel burnt out by it all. Continuing to follow advice from others to trace traditional avenues in a collapsing industry all seemed to lead to nowhere. In this process, Roger found himself farther and farther from the beauty and connection he had once discovered.

In reaction, he put together what he called Roger Harvey & Family shows –– a series of live events featuring the people and artists he’s connected with over the years, joining him in select cities were Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms, Greg Barnett and Tom May of The Menzingers, Augusta Koch of Cayetana, amongst many others –– through this he reconnected with the “what” and “why” of what landed him here.

“Getting people together to share in a moment simply with song in the center,” he says, enabled Roger to break through some of the walls he ran into, and he began redefining an approach that was more fitting for what he is after. These new songs are a centerpiece of that experience.

This fall will see the release of several of those outputs as Roger prepares to make his third LP in early 2020. For now, he has a handful of shows with his band, The High Lifers, in addition to the current single series that will keep him winding down the road.
