Keeping Harvey Company – Album Release

The Midland band Keeping Harvey Company celebrated the release of their first self-titled album this past Friday, 11/02/18, in downtown Big Spring at The Train Car, LLC. The band is made up of Big Spring residents Mae Harvey - lead singer and acoustics, and Tanner Churchwell - lead guitar, as well as J.C. Harvey - drums and harmony, Jacob Wayne - bass guitar, and Jennifer Hall on fiddle.


Mae told KBest News that the band has been working towards this moment since their beginning 2 ½ years ago, and describes their sound as Outlaw Country.


"I categorize us as Outlaw Country just because we have more of the rock from Tanner playing leads and we like to keep it upbeat, but we also love Classic Country like Patsy Cline."


With the band’s release of their first album, Mae noted that success is now at days is dependent upon community support. She advised that while people will be able to stream their music on digital sources, artists don’t usually much in royalties from that, but buying their music will actually give them more of the profit to use for promotions and to use towards making a new album.


Keeping Harvey Company’s music, including their new song “Kicking Stones”, is available on digital sources such as Spotify, itunes, and Youtube. They’ll also have physical copies to sell at their shows. The next show for the band will be Nov. 9th at their album release party in Midland at The Beer Garden at 9 PM.
