Harrison Country - 'Men in the House'
BWH Music Group’s 'Keepin' It Country, Vol. One,' by Various Artists contains an eclectic Mix of 17 songs by today's best independent Country artists and Songwriters. With great storytelling and heart-felt performances at the core of each song, the album spans traditional and contemporary Country music. Off the compilation, Harrison Country's single, "Men in the House" is sure to be a favorite in your house.
A guitar chord with wavy reverb and a smooth as velvet, bluesy lead guitar solo pave the entrance of “Men In the House” by Harrison Country. Lead vocalist, Amy Harrison, sings, “Well, it was Saturday night, and me and my sisters, were scoutin’ the town for some good-time misters.” As Amy goes on to reveal the “slim pickins” in the house, the song bursts into an all-out country-blues, foot-tapping, homemade jam that swings, struts, rocks, rolls, and pulls out all the stops.
Amy's vocals are fun and feisty, entertaining and completely polished. She can easily stand toe-to-toe with country stars like Carry Underwood and if this song was taken under the wing of a big label, it would shoot up the charts. Musically, Harrison Country are masters of their craft. Bryan Ewald is on guitars and keyboard; Josh Chapman is on bass; and Brandon Bartlett plays the drums. The art of the song is found in the tasteful arrangement with slick guitar riffs and a steady rhythm section that keeps the energy going with crisp drumming and strong walking bass lines.
It might surprise you to learn that “Men in the House” was written by two men, Don Harrison and Bryan Ewald. Major props go to these two talented song-writers for capturing the essence of a dead-beat guy with great humor and clever lyrics that will make you smile. "The joint was loaded with thirty-year-old Lost Boys livin’ with their mamas, Peter Pansies still sleepin’ in pajamas. And, a dude with a do like Donnie Trump. Bless your heart boys, I think we’ve seen enough."
There's "a hit in the house" with "Men in the House" and the only thing between this song and Billboard is getting it out to the masses.
"Men in the House" is featured on the album Climate Change and on BWH Music Group's "Keepin It Country, Vol. One, by Various Artists.
'Keepin' It Country, Vol. One' is available on all major digital outlets. For more information about the album and artists, visit BWH Music Group.
