“Bands for the Band” is a fundraiser for all the Wake Forest High School band programs. We will be featuring two very talented local high school bands, Karma and UR Mom, and our headliner will be Brett Harris! Brett Harris is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Durham, NC. In 2010 his debut LP Man of Few Words was featured by Paste Magazine’s “Best of What’s Next”, NPR’s “All Songs Considered: Second Stage”, and made several “Best of” lists, drawing comparisons to the work of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Harry Nilsson, and Emitt Rhodes. Additionally, Brett has participated as a core band member in live performances of Big Star’s Third, playing throughout the US in addition to the UK, Spain, and Australia. He has also served as a touring member of Jangle Pop progenitors The dB’s. Brett has recently completed work on a number of projects, including 2015’s critically revered Mr. Sunshine EP and a new LP, Up in the Air, released in March of 2016.
