Welsh singer songwriter Jack Harris was the youngest ever winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival's 'New Folk' Award in 2005 (previous winners include Gillian Welch and Anais Mitchell). He has also been the recipient of an EFDSS creative bursary for songwriting.
His songs take a compassionate look at things both common and uncommon, and see them differently. They are literate, curious songs, often in character, always intriguing. His third full length album, 'The Wide Afternoon', assembles 11 new songs, rooted in folk and blues traditions, telling real and imagined stories in a husky, intimate vocal accompanied by excellent, fluid guitar picking.

"A priest of song" - Anais Mitchell

"Powerful, poetic melodies" ***** - The Guardian

"A natural, captivating songwriting talent" 10/10 - The Telegraph




*****


"Remarkable songwriter... we should all work on helping make him the star he deserves to be."

- Mojo

... an unpretentious, refreshingly honest songwriter... one of the bedrocks of the UK alt. Country, folk and Americana scene"

- 3 Chords And The Truth



"Paul is an incredibly talented songwriter with big, catchy melodies. His songs are at times very humorous, rebellious, sometimes sad but always refreshingly honest. His material is like him confident, highly original and totally individual."
