Jason Hawk Harris - "The Smoke and the Stars"

At this point I think Jason Hawk Harris has officially reached Next Big Thing status. "The Smoke and the Stars" is the third single from his upcoming album, and all three are wildly different, to the point that you could think they were from different artists. "Cussing at the Light" was a fairly typical alt-country song, but with a bit more showmanship. "I'm Afraid" was described by us as 100% country and 100% punk. "The Smoke and the Stars" is a straight up power ballad. It's not a country power ballad, although there is plenty of country in it. This is almost an 80's style power ballad, but updated and nowhere near as cheesy. An artist that can make music this diverse, and nail an earnest power ballad that can appeal to literally everyone? Jason Hawk Harris is someone special.

You can listen to "The Smoke and the Stars" below. Love & the Dark, the upcoming album from Jason Hawk Harris, will be out August 23 on Bloodshot Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Jason Hawk Harris, check out his website.
