"The lyrics of this album are on a level of their own.set apart with bold, sometimes bitter intricacy, aligned just so to bring every word alive. And yet, these lyrics live in the shadows of fantastic music that is so well coordinated that you can't escape from listening to it." - Independent Clauses
Harriet Street burst onto the scene in 2005 with a deep breath and a wail. Fronted by singer/songwriter Brian Cassagnol, the Boston quartet's lush musical textures expertly blend crashing guitars, soaring strings, and desperate, resonant vocals on dense rhythmic backdrops.
Within months of forming, Harriet Street drew immediate acclaim and found themselves at the center of attention: a showcasing artist at the NEMO Boston Music Festival (chosen by the Boston Herald as one of the "conference highlights"), the newest addition to NYCs 2 Generations Management roster, a licensing deal through leading agency EMOTO Music, and sold out shows at ever larger venues.
The birth of Harriet Street goes back to 2004 when frontman Brian Cassagnol and bassist Andrew Morgan were discovered by drummer Ed Toth from Vertical Horizon. These three immediately set upon writing and revising the songs that would comprise their debut album Cold and Comfortable, which was co-produced by Toth and Cassagnol.
Even the harshest critics agree that when Harriet Street takes the stage there is a chemistry, a charisma, and an edge which demand the complete and undivided attention of every person in the room. Cold and Comfortable was released in July 2005 and these three brothers continue to tour relentlessly to find out what will be in store for them next. One thing is for sure: each breath will be deeper than the last, and eventually the wailing will be impossible to ignore.
