I’ve been the lead singer and primary songwriter for this band since before we released our first CD, ‘Spinner of Tales’, in 1998. After a twenty-four-year break, during which I spent seventeen years touring, and produced seven CDs as a solo artist, Harwill ~ the band ~ is back together.

Inspired by the pandemic, we’ve written and recorded an album of new songs called ‘Still Nineteen’, and hope you like them. ‘Early Riser’ is the first single we’ve ever released online, and we’ll get a couple more songs out before sharing the bunch with you, in digital album form, in the fall of 2022.

It’s good to be back. It’s better to be heard. Thanks for being here and enjoy the music.

A transplanted Albertan, I’m still a lacto-ovo vegetarian due to my health and remain an atheist due to my freedom-loving mind. I’m a son of a family that once counted eight siblings and blessed with children and grandchildren of my own, for whose love I remain ever grateful.

Now semi-retired from the stage after decades of touring, I live at the village of Thorsby, Alberta, in western Canada.

 “The writer is a spiritual anarchist, as in the depth of his soul every man is. He is discontented with everything and everybody. The writer is everybody’s best friend and only true enemy – the good and great enemy. He neither walks with the multitude nor cheers with them. The writer who is a writer is a rebel who never stops.” – William Saroyan, 1908-1981 (from The William Saroyan Reader, 1958)
