Over the years, Billy Harvey has forged his own brand of Postmodern Pop. As an artist, he’s 

been the recipient of the International Songwriters Award for Best Rock Song “Frozen Through,” 

and broke into the Top 100 on the CMJ charts with his hauntingly soulful release Bearsick. The 

caffeine-addled do-it-yourselfer that he is, he has also been quietly directing, animating, and 

editing the accompanying music videos to his records, culminating in the singlehanded 

production of the documentary film Everywhere Now. He has also worked steadily as a musician 

(accompanying Patty Griffin, Kim Richey, The Forest Rangers, and The Courtyard Hounds) as 

well as a producer (for Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Luke Wade, Slaid Cleaves, and Steve 

Poltz).

2018 has been an especially pivotal year for Harvey. His latest—and most personal—record The 

Arsonist may be the harbinger of a new genre: New Wave Americana. On The Arsonist, Harvey 

mixes the Moog synthesizers and electric guitars of bands like the Cars with the matter-of-fact 

vocal delivery of Tom Petty. A singer-songwriter at his best, you will get the sense of something 

that is at once deceptively familiar and refreshingly distinct.

Harvey has also brought his diverse artistic background and wide-ranging interests to the big 

screen, gaining his first leading role for the thriller Strings. Over the course of its festival season, 

Strings won multiple awards including Best Ensemble Cast and Best Song—for one of Harvey’s 

own, “The Greatest Escape.”

Billy’s website has won various media and internet awards, including the Interactive Design 

Award at SXSW and the Flash Forward award in NYC.
