JR Harbidge hails from the Black Country, he writes and performs what has been termed
Black Country Americana. With his diverse and unique style, you can rely on JR to take you
on a journey with his music; from the gritty title track of his last album Long Black River to
the more tender and reflective Sunshine Not Rain written for his son. You can expect to
experience a variety of feelings and a good time with JR’s music.
A seasoned performer of both his own work and in a rock ‘n roll band, JR, now based in the midlands, is no stranger to the stage and delivers both full band and stripped back acoustic renditions of his work.
Never one to rest on his laurels and always looking to further develop his sound, JR has an exciting new album in the works. Reincarnation Blues is slated for release circa summer 2023 and will once again demonstrate his unique insight into country, blues and Americana topped with the irrepressible JR Harbidge magic.
