Calico Romeo, the fifth musical offering by Josh Harmony, marks the arrival of an artist coming into his own and feeling confident and inspired by love and also by the peaks and valleys of life. Sonically, the album melds a variety of Harmony’s influences…think The Everly Brothers meets Hank Williams wedded with the Beatles this time around. The inspiration for the album title is a blend of two distinct parts: “Calico comes from Calico Ghost Town. We used to camp there when I was a kid. It represents the country parts of the album. Romeo means a man in the pursuit of love. Obviously, referring to the love songs on the album. Calico Romeo = Country Lover,” says Josh. Subjects of love, loss, and hope permeate the lyrics inspired by his own history and those of some of his friends and family. There’s the joyful, Beatles-esque, “Will You Be My Girl?” contrasted with the scathing country romp of “You Don’t Know What Love Is” and ending with the hopeful, banjo and mandolin driven, “I Know A Land.” Adding depth to the production this time around was keyboardist Andy Smith (Wildcat! Wildcat!,The Red West) and pedal steel professional, John Schreffler (Shooter Jennings) contributing to a beautifully textured recording. "I am so thankful we were able to have Schreffler come in and add pedal steel the day before he left for a tour. I have always loved the beautiful, melancholy sound of the instrument.” Produced by his long-time production team of Erick Cole and Travis Taylor, the album came together in an intense week in a Pacific Palisades studio. "Conflicting schedules and all, we managed to pull off recording the entire album in 6 consecutive days.” The album takes twists and turns lyrically leading the listener through the author’s thoughts on love. “There are dreams with broken hearts and there are hearts with broken dreams…” he sings in his favorite tune on the record, “A Smile Goes a Long Way”. for more, visit www.joshharmonymusic.com
