No. 025 Shitty Barn Session: Juniper Tar and Corey Hart
It's been said that brothers have a natural way with harmony singing. In Juniper Tar, only two of the members are brothers by familial relationguitarist Aaron and bassist Ryan Schleicherbut some bonds go deeper than family. After all, you can't pick your relatives, but you can pick the guys who will stand by your side as you play every bar with a stage in your hometown (When the town is Milwaukee that means a lot of bars). Juniper Tar's harmonies aren't immaculate, but that's the beauty of them: they howl and scrape up next to each other, like excited shouts of exaltation when a long lost friend walks in the door and you immediately pick up where you left off. Juniper Tar has been at it for seven years, and before this they have sometimes left their homefor New Orleans, for San Francisco, for Los Angeles. But the music always called them back. There's a good chance Juniper Tar will bring it all back home for you too.
From the time Corey Hart started singing at a young age, his voice has amazed audiences. "The human voice is such wonderfully complex instrument. So often, words can fail to portray the whole meaning or idea you are trying to get across, but in song you can convey more emotion and add more depth and dimension to the written word," says Hart. And he does just that with a voice that has helped him win Madison, WI Songwriter of the Year in 2007 and garner comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Ray LaMontagne. In recent years, Hart has continued to wow audiences across the country with his amazing vocal range and unique styling, sharing the stage with Dawes, The Duhks, Shawn Mullins, and Langhorne Slim. His performances possess a cathartic intensity that entrances audiences and draw them inside the music.
