Light Horse Harry

Austin, TX Roots Rock

 Light Horse Harry is a four piece band that blends country, rock, and pop into a unique take on American roots music. Their self-titled debut album dropped in summer of 2012 while three of the current members (Zach, Drew, Gus) were attending high school in Dallas. In 2013, they made the move down I-35 to Austin where they met drummer Shane Gordon and fiddle player Kathryn Drake ("Kitty D") while attending the University of Texas. In the summer of 2014, the band released a four-song EP titled "Busted In Brownsville." Light Horse Harry has held multiple residencies on Austin's historic 6th street since 2014, including their weekly bill at B.D Riley's Irish Pub. They've also played venues throughout Texas as well, including festivals such as SXSW, Burnet Bluebonnet Festival, and Dallas Music Festival. In the Spring of 2017, as all the band members were nearing graduation, they were chosen as a winner of Kerrville Folk Festival's university song writing competition with Gus Miller's original song "Shaky Hands and Bloodshot Eyes." 

The band's  newest  record, "San Pedro" was released in December of 2017, featuring the songs "Sunny Side Up" and "Lemonade" as singles from the album.
