'Forward to Reality,' a brand new album from Mickey Harte. is his first in several years. Recorded in America, 'Forward to Reality' is a rootsy, contemporary-sounding work showcasing Mickey's elegant acoustic guitar and far-ranging vocals.
Joliet/Chicago-based singer/songwriter John Condron produced the album, adding perfectly-complementary arrangements of guitars, and percussion, enhanced with occasional 'color' instruments including horns, electric organ, and bass.
'Forward to Reality' is best described as 'Contemporary Acoustic Folk' in style. Yet, this album is by no means to be considered laid-back. It's an intensely emotional work, at times playful and fun, other times contemplative and reflective, and in at least one instance, veritably seethes sensuality. All compositions are Mickey's own, with origins from very personal experiences, places, and times. Critics are already saying it's perhaps his best work ever.
Released on Swerve Music Limited, Dublin, Ireland.
