Kevin Harrison

& True North


We are Kevin harrison & true north


Kevin Harrison & True North was founded to bring a once familiar style of music back to the forefront of New York City’s legendary scene – rock & roll.

With all due respect to synth-poppysch-garageshoegaze, or any of the other hip genres taking a hold of the city’s soundscape, we build our music on a time-honored foundation of inspired songwriting, strong rhythms, and guitars that are both soaring and soulful.

Our “folky-bluesy rock” draws on decades of tradition, while recognizing that it’s no longer 1969, for a lively combination of classic and modern vibes.

If it seems like we have a bit of a chip on our shoulder as a result of our fair city seemingly losing its musical compass, we do. We can only hope to offer a strong enough brand of authentic, rock & roll music to swing the needle back toward its True North.
