harper simon is the work of an exceptionally gifted singer-songwriter and guitarist who's clearly discovered who he is, and found his own way as a recording artist in a time when the very concept of recording an album seems threatened. and lets get the elephant out of the room - yes, he is paul simon's son, yes, it does sound like his dad, but don't let that put you off. this is a really great album from someone who has been quietly developing. simon artfully shares that sense of discovery here throughout an ambitious and deeply felt new piece of work that offers a vivid, even haunting reminder of how much an album can still mean here in 2010. the album has been recorded with the help of an impressive and decidedly eclectic, multigenerational group of musical collaborators - famed producer bob johnston (the man behind classic recordings from bob dylan, johnny cash and leonard cohen), an all-star group of veteran first-call nashville session players, an impressive group of contemporary young singer-songwriters, friends, and yes, even harper's own father, the legendary paul simon.
