Buy More Art [this Christmas]: Jason Harrod, Highliner & Christmas Hymns

December is the perfect time to re-introduce the Buy More Art blog series -- each post featuring an artist I know and love creating work worth your time, attention, and dollars.  For today's post, I'm inviting you to listen in on my conversation with Jason Harrod about his third full-length solo album, Highliner


I've learned that Jason is a natural-born storyteller --  no matter the venue.  It was hard to cut out some of the clips so maybe I'll post a 'b roll' some other time.

In the meantime I felt pretty lucky to get a private concert in my living room. Brian and I are working out arrangements to get Jason to Austin for a couple of shows in early 2014.  I'll keep you posted!  

(p.s., don't miss the special bonus links for Jason's Christmas Hymns EP)

 - Click play to hear our conversation -

part 1in which we learn how Max Fleischer inspired Highliner, Jason's first 
band break-up, an excerpt of "Trains", and why Jason quit smoking

part 2in which we hear the themes in the album and an excerpt of "Moon Mission" (my favorite song on the album!) + me saying the word "yep" 32 times.
