Experience the Enigmatic World of HALO RIDER Where Each Note Tells a Story Wrapped in the Warmth of Indie Folk

In the vast and ever-evolving landscape of music, it is a rare joy to stumble upon artists who not only understand the essence of storytelling through melodies but also master the craft of weaving emotional threads into their compositions. HALO RIDER, hailing from the vibrant scene of Chicago, United States, is one such gem in the trove of acoustic and indie folk music.

Their latest single, “But You Still Know,” is a testament to their unique ability to blend atmospheric and cinematic soundscapes with minimalistic, old-sounding influences and surreal lyrics. The dynamic duo, consisting of luminaries MARKUS JAMES and ANNE HARRIS, invites listeners into a world where music is not just heard but felt on a visceral level.

His music, described by BILLBOARD as one of the deepest listening experiences, is an odyssey through the heartlands of America, reflecting the soul of its culture and the untold stories of its people.

Anne Harris, on the other hand, complements this journey with her enchanting vocals, violin/fiddle, and mandolin, enriching the duo’s sound with layers of emotional and sonic complexity. Having shared the stage with icons across genres, Harris’s ability to translate visual excitement into auditory experiences is unparalleled.

Described as an internationally recognized talent, she draws listeners into a whirlwind of sound and colour, where each note played is a brushstroke on a canvas of Americana and folk rock.

The synergy between James and Harris in HALO RIDER is palpable in live performances, which have been hailed as some of the most exciting, intense, and brilliant collaborations imaginable.

Their music ranges from acoustic front porch serenades to fuzzed-out electric anthems, all the while maintaining a strong lyrical dimension that touches on themes universal and deeply personal.

“But You Still Know” exemplifies HALO RIDER’s signature style of male/female unison vocals, fiddle solos, and the distinctive Pops Staples guitar texture. It is a sonic journey that beckons to be experienced, a melding of alt-folk, indie folk, and singer-songwriter band sensibilities that transcends mere listening to become an immersive experience.
