Sweet Harriet is a native New Hampshire based singer song writer. Her 'ah-ha' moment in music came years after losing her health and career (in active duty military health care). She began singing to improve lung volume and have more fun. Her music and lyrics are multi - genre; Acoustic folk, Americana, country, classic rock, and blue-grass. Her performances are interactive and lively.
She took a few banjo lessons in the 1980's because it was fun. Fast forward 2006, wanting fun and to improve health, went for a banjo lesson and got voice coaching instead. She went to sell the banjo, instead bought a guitar (a three quarter Baby Taylor), learned a couple basic chords, showed up to local jam sessions at a candy store, quickly bonding with other musicians, got invited to join a few bands, started getting paid gigs (hey, a dollar and a few coins is ...fun) performing live local festivals, farmers markets, fundraisers, campgrounds, nursing homes, churches, funerals and weddings, and years of monthly Sunday Morning Firefighter Relief Association Fire House Breakfasts.
Then, off to the studio! She's having fun and eager for more with over 55 song releases! Her her second album, Thanks For Stopping By, got a contract with The Discovery Channel via Broadjam. This album is playful and uses vintage instrumentation and is based on her family, friends and life experiences.
Influences and Current Events
Becoming a snow-bird fueled the lyrics of both her latest releases, Homebody, Cayo Hueso Christmas Archipelago and Walkin' Pickin' Ploggers.
Cayo Hueso Christmas Archipelago, a TropRock, released October 11, 2019. It's a song about spending Christmas in Key West and meeting amazing people at the Old Stone Coffee House. Then, there's friendly folks of The Conch Nation and Sigsbee Shufflers who exercise and pick up trash. This is a world wide movement and it's called Plogging! Hence, my country two-step song Walkin' Pickin' Ploggers to be released November 1st, 2019!
Her lyrics are influenced directly from her life experiences, huge family, traveling, career choices, intimate relationship with nature (camping with her husband) and eagerness for 'what's next'?
