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 producer (Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Slaid Cleaves, and Steve Poltz are among his credits). 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 2007 release “Bearsick”. This caffeine-addled do-it-yourselfer has also been quietly directing, animating, and editing the accompanying music videos to his records. In February 2008 he shot and directed a documentary film entitled “EVERYWHERE NOW”. Filmed entirely on his laptop camera, Harvey intimately chronicles a 7000 mile plus tour in a car powered by waste vegetable oil. From crossing the continental divide on a sheet of ice to digging through oil dumpsters in the freezing cold, what follows is a near epic journey of endurance and self-discovery that is both sublime and at times harrowing. Harvey’s latest release "The Everlasting War" plays like a love letter… to a girl… to himself…ultimately to us as we are invited to participate in the clear honesty of the music. This record teems with raw emotion and heartfelt sentiment so succinct it is impossible not to be affected by it. It Standout tracks include “Blind Man’s Bike”, “Heading for the Hills” (featured in ABC’s Private Practice), and “Let This Be The Day”. Billy’s website has won various media and internet awards including the Interactive Design Award at South By Southwest and the Flash Forward award in NYC.
