‘Everyone With Someone’ is the debut single by Alabama natives Harrison Scarecrow, released world-wide via Integrity Records on 30th October 2020.
Penned by band members Ryan Tomlin and Will McCracken, ‘Everyone With Someone’ hits hard with a tale of broken dreams, an ear-worm chorus to die for, and aching strings recorded at Cypress Moon Studios, the former legendary Muscle Shoals Sound located on the banks of the Tennessee River.
With a debut offering that sets the bar intentionally high, Harrison Scarecrow’s characteristic widescreen indie-noir forms the sonic backdrop for a compellingly poignant account of a failed union and post-breakup need to accept that “not everyone gets to be with someone”.
Growing up in the region, the band were well aware of Muscle Shoals’ rich yet mysterious musical past, having recorded the likes of The Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and, more recently, The Black Keys, and had no doubt it was the place to capture both the energy and melancholy of their sound. And, despite the sound engineer being caught up in a road accident mid-way through the recording session, the old studio kept its promise.
Influenced by the likes of Conor Oberst, Springsteen and fellow Alabama native Jason Isbell, Harrison Scarecrow move effortlessly from sparse piano & vocal pieces to full band sounds with a driving rhythm section that could have dropped straight out of a New York indie club. Their debut album is scheduled for the autumn of 2021.
