Discovery: E.W. Harris

E.W. Harris is an indie folk singer songwriter who is based in Brooklyn, New York. His new track Bad Ghost is steeped in heartbreak and a touch of the supernatural.

I was captured by Bad Ghost‘s unconventional construction. On a bed of traditional folk and acoustic instrumentals lay an unexpected array of electronic effects. What really stuck with me though was E.W.’s soulful vocals and poetic lyrics.

Originally from Athens, Georgia, E.W. relocated to the Big Apple in 2009 to start releasing music under his current stage name. He takes influences from a range of innovative artists including Bjork, David Bowie and Tom Waits.
