During the finishing of Josh Eagle and The Harvest City’s first record Show Your Teeth, frustrated with overindulgence, sins against himself, and a slight writer’s block, Josh booked a flight to Hawaii. It was 3000 miles off the mainland where Eagle begun to stick his hands in the dirt, gaining knowledge of farming and working on what would become 2011’s A Good One is Hard to Find. Eagle’s distance away from his hometown allowed the head and the heart grow stronger. The remainder of time away finished up along the HWY 1…Monteray, Los Olivos, Big Sur, San Francisco, Muir Woods. It was here where ideas became to be concrete. The outcome of Eagle’s hiatus were songs gifting homage: memories of hometown Cincinnati, romantic Hawaiian escapes, and a young man’s desire to become one with himself and the vast American landscape. Welcome home.
