Born in the Rubber City and raised in the South, E.W. Harris is what he terms "a futurist with a guitar and an axe to grind." Known in the Brooklyn scene for his strong vocals, odd demeanor, and infectious laugh, Harris has become a staple in the Big City Folk Collective, and in many venues both in NYC and afield.
Of his latest album, "Humunculus" he says:
In the not so distant future the world looks very different than it does today. An asteroid has collided with the earth. Large stretches of what would now be called wasteland isolate technocratic city states. In one such city, Rocket City to be precise, a slum lord and a techno-hierophant labor in secret. Their goal, to create a new kind of life, and in so doing attempt to glimpse into the future. From this fantastical setting, born from the imagination of ambient folk artist E.W. Harris, comes Homunculus; a mixed media exploration not only of the possible future, but of personhood, prejudice, emotion, and ultimately of ourselves.
