about

GOOD LUCK STRANGER named TOP 10 ALBUMS of 2000 @ Pop Culture Press and Delusions of Adequacy.

"Roots-rock Americana with the vibrant, crackling pop of Revolver-era Beatles."
-George Zahora, SPLENDID;

"An addictive set of Lennon-shaded country-rock, Harris is a smart, literate songwriter with melodies to make him a dangerous commodity in an increasingly mediocre genre" ---Matt Fink, POP CULTURE PRESS;

"GOOD LUCK STRANGER gets my highest recommendation."---Ron Garmon, MEAN STREET MAGAZINE;

"One of the finest albums I've heard this year...This music is timeless." ---Jon Worley, AIDING & ABETTING;

BIO:

Brady is an L.A. based singer-songwriter who has performed on small stages (and a few large ones) from L.A. to Texas to Boston to Amsterdam. The Texas born, former busker (London & Paris underground) has had his songs placed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, featured in independent films, hand picked by screenwriter Joe Esterhaus (the song "All of You Suck") and chosen by the rock band Collective Soul as "Best Rock Entry" (for the song "Sunday Shining") in the "Born on the WWW" song competition. Brady was critic's pick @ the NXNW Festival '99, then released GOOD LUCK STRANGER and went on to tour Belgium and Holland later in 2000. 2001 saw more gigs in Texas, LA and NYC, and Brady won a $600 SHURE condenser microphone for his roots-grass version of Motorhead's classic "Ace of Spades" (hear at www.bradyharris.com) from SHURE's Musical Roots Contest. 2002 continues w/the recording of the follow-up to Good Luck Stranger. Also, Sunday Shining (from Good Luck Stranger) recently won $5,000 from the Pontiac Vibe Car Commercial Contest.

Official bio from All Music Guide (www.allmusic.com):

Former frontman for the Replacements-inspired Solid Goldsteins, Brady Harris' solo career has diverged from his previous work into a sound altogether more indicative of his Texas roots. Bearing considerable vocal resemblance to John Lennon, Harris crafts moody country-rock with a hard pop edge. Strongly melodic with a confident wit, he combines well-traveled themes with stoic romanticism. Having paid his dues as a starving artist, busking on the streets of Paris and London, Harris found himself in Los Angeles recording one album with his former bandmates before releasing his solo debut in 1997. That album, Next Door to Nowhere, received favorable reviews and was followed by considerable media attention at 1999's NXNW music conference. Good Luck Stranger (2000) was met with near unanimous critical approval, and Harris went on to tour Europe in late 2000. -- Matt Fink

Track Name: Save Yer Love For Me
Save yer love for me

When you're young and all your life's a dream
And everything's exactly as it seems
And all the places we went
Drunk afternoons spent walking alone
Y'know that sometimes I
Still wish that somehow time could fly me home

Save yer love for me
Back in '83
The world was you and me

Back to Houston my mind always goes
The thick-aired breezes of the Montrose
And all the places we went
Drunk afternoons spent walking alone
You know that sometimes I
Still wish that somehow time could fly me home

Save yer love for
Back in '83
The world was you and me

La la la
La la la

You know that sometimes I
Still have to dry and eye when I see home

Save yer love for me
I'll be what you need
Back in '83
The world was you and me

Save yer love for me
Save yer love for me
Save yer love for me
Track Name: I'll Miss These Days
I'll Miss These Days
(from the CD "Good Luck Stranger")

I'll miss these days
Spent with you time can't erase
You'll never know all the ways
but I'll miss these days

Share a dream
You never know what it brings
This is the price it seems for us

Live and learn
Broken hearts always yearn
For a past that can't return to them

When the feeling leave you dry
Seems love's on loan from days gone by
Or not yet arrived from the days so far away
That always come but don't stay
As long as you and I remain
That's when I'll wanna say

I'll miss these days
Spent with you time can't erase
You'll never know all the ways
But I'll miss these days

Share a dream
What a lovers kiss may bring
The other half of all the things you need

But when you wake
To the sound your own doubts make
You can almost hear hearts break in two

When the feelings pass you by
Seems love's on loan from days gone by
Or not yet arrived from the days so far away
That always come but don't stay
As long as you and I remain
That's when I'll wanna say

I'll miss these days
Track Name: Drunk With You
Drunk With You
Words & Music by Brady Harris

All I wanna do is get drunk with you
Cos drinkin’ on my own
Don’t do what it used to do
I can feel me lose my power
I’ve got to get to happy hour
I’ve chased these blues all day
They come and then they slip away
With each sip I take

I’ll buy the first round for you, my love
I’ll buy the second round, cos 3 ain’t enough
I don’t wanna stay out late
Baby don’t make me wait

When all I wanna do is get next to you
Cos bein’ on my own
Always leads to darkened moods
You take up all my time
I might as well make you mine
Or you can rest assured
My vision’s gonna end up blurred
Speech slurred

I’ll buy another round for you, my drunk
I’ll buy another round, cos 4 ain’t enough
Why do you have to always say
That love is something I can’t make

When all I wanna do is is get next to you
Cos being on my own
Always leads to self abuse
You take up all my time
Not in reality but in my mind
I’ve chased these blues all day
Won’t you help me come and drink ‘em away
Say you’ll stay
