Over the years Billy Harvey has been playing his own brand of Post Modern Pop, working not only as an artist but also as a musician (Patty Griffin, Forest Rangers, The Courtyard Hounds) and a producer (Luke Wade, Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Slaid Cleaves, and Steve Poltz).
A prolific writer, he has been the recipient of the International Songwriters Award for Best Rock Song “Frozen Through," and broke into the Top 100 on the CMJ Charts with his hauntingly beautiful release “Bearsick." The caffeine-addled do-it-yourselfer that he is, he has also been quietly directing, animating, and editing the accompanying music videos to his records culminating in his documentary film “Everywhere Now”. Filmed entirely on his laptop camera, Harvey intimately chronicled a 7000-mile plus tour in a car powered by waste vegetable oil. Given the diversity of his interests, it is not much of a surprise to learn that he is pursuing acting as yet another form of expression. 2011 marked the festival release of “Strings” in which Harvey gained a leading role. Over the course of that festival season “Strings” won multiple awards including Best Ensemble Cast, and Best Song… Harvey's own, “The Greatest Escape." His second Role in a feature film follows his character ‘Simon’ on a fantastical journey of self-discovery and comes by way of the Indy film “The Taiwan Oyster”. Harvey's latest effort is a 10 song album entitled "Dear Danger,". This record plays like any classic vinyl you've just rediscovered in your collection.
