about

Long Is The Walk, the solo project of Boston-based cellist, singer-songwriter and composer Jeremy Harman has released its debut album Spirits and Ghosts, a hauntingly hypnotic collection of songs and virtuosic instrumentals which weave together coming-of-age tales of an individual struggling to hold on to dreams and purpose as the naivete of youth fades and is replaced by an obsession with the finite nature of time and of life.

Harman’s music has been heard in concert halls throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia as the cellist of the Sirius Quartet, a string quartet who writes and performs original multi-genre instrumental music. After working as a freelance cellist in the Boston and NYC music scenes for the better part of a decade and sharing the stage with artists as diverse as Peter Gabriel, Sting, Lady Gaga, Bobby McFerrin, DeVotchKa and John Williams, Harman has stepped out as a songwriter and created a compelling sonic realm that is equal parts earthy and ethereal. Fleet-fingered acoustic guitar ostinatos pulsate throughout, layers of cello spend as much time chugging viscerally as they do whispering ominously, and lush, understated vocal harmonies bring to mind Bon Iver and Andrew Bird, all set against the backdrop of the tight jazz-tinged rhythm section of drummer Jens Ellerhold and upright bassist Joey Pierog. The end result is a dream-like mixture in which raw grit repeatedly gives way to atmospheric beauty.
